This page refers to the inland region of Grace Bay. See also Grace Bay Beach.
Grace Bay is the center of tourism, upscale shopping and restaurants on Providenciales. Most of the resorts and hotels on Providenciales are found in this area.
Located on the northeastern side of Providenciales, Grace Bay covers an area roughly .5 miles by 2 miles. It’s bordered by The Bight on its west side and Leeward on its east side.
Shopping, Restaurants and Banks
Grace Bay has the nearly all of the luxury restaurants and gift shops on the island. These tend to be in two groups that are about a quarter of a mile from each other. The majority are in the Regent Village and Saltmills Plaza, two complexes across the street from each other. A short distance away, Ports of Call and the several small surrounding plazas offer some more options.
Graceway Gourmet supermarket is located in the center of the Grace Bay area not far from the Seven Stars roundabout. Along with serving prepared food, this grocery store also has a coffee shop onsite.
Scotia Bank (Turks and Caicos) has a branch located near Graceway Gourmet Supermarket and CIBC FirstCaribbean Bank has a branch in The Saltmills. Both banks have ATMs.
Nearly all roads here are paved and have sidewalks. Unfortunately, there’s no public transport on Providenciales, so you’re more or less limited to either walking, cycling, having a rental car or taking a taxi.
Grace Bay is easy to navigate and does not cover a huge area. Depending on where you’re staying and your personal preferences, walking may be suitable. However, be aware that the sun is typically intense.
Taxis can usually be found waiting at resort entrances and at Graceway Gourmet supermarket.
Parking is free and space can typically be found with little trouble.
The Grace Bay area consists of very flat terrain, so it’s easy to get around by bike.
There are no dedicated bicycle paths, so we generally recommend riding on the sidewalks if there are no pedestrians present as drivers typically exceed the (in most areas 20mph) speed limit. Per the UK Highway Code, when on the road, travel with the car traffic direction. Take great care at roundabouts.
