The island of Providenciales supports the majority of retail, shopping and dining establishments in the Turks and Caicos, and 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 both
restaurants, art galleries,
gift and souvenir shops, and professional services such as
law offices, architects and financial services.
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.
