he island of Providenciales supports the majority of retail, shopping, and dining establishments in the Turks and Caicos. The majority of the tourism-oriented businesses of this type are found in plazas and enclaves in the inland Grace Bay region.
These complexes range in size from small plazas with a few units, up to the expansive Regent Village and Saltmills, and combine a little of the elements of both high streets in the United Kingdom and shopping malls in the United States. You’ll generally find a wide range of restaurants, art galleries, gift and souvenir shops, and professional services such as law offices, architects, and financial services.
In the central Grace Bay area, where most shops are located, two banks, the Graceway Gourmet supermarket, and a small police office can also be found.
Vacation and Gift Shopping
If you’d like to do a little gift or souvenir shopping, it often makes sense to find a suitable parking space (if you have a rental vehicle), and simply explore the Grace Bay area on foot. Most will find it unnecessary to drive the short distances between complexes.
Car Parking and Transport
Complimentary parking is available at every complex listed here, yet space may be a little limited at the smaller sites. In any case, it’s always possible to find an open space within walking distance.
Taxis can typically be found waiting at the larger plazas, including at Graceway Gourmet, the Regent Village, Saltmills Plaza, and Ports of Call, or at a nearby resort or hotel.
