Providenciales is home to many amazing beachfront resorts, and most feature an incredible range of amenities and a great ambiance. Several luxury resorts offer a day pass or evening pass, so visitors to the Turk and Caicos that are staying in a vacation rental or smaller hotel can enjoy the all-inclusive experience for a day.
The larger all-inclusive resorts, Beaches Turks and Caicos and Club Med Turkoise, include unlimited food and beverages with the day pass. Passes at the all-inclusive resorts typically allow entrance after 10 AM, which excludes breakfast.
Day passes can offer great value, but consider some of the boat charter options on Providenciales. It’s possible to arrange a private excursion for $1000-2000 for a group, which often includes beverages and food. Such a trip typically visits uninhabited cays, secluded beaches, the iguana sanctuary of Little Water Cay (Iguana Island), and exquisite snorkeling reefs, which can be a better way to experience our islands and marine environment.
Beaches Turks and Caicos
Beaches Turks and Caicos is the perfect choice for families and children, as their collection of attractions, water sports, and restaurants is unparalleled. There’s a water park with slides and a giant pirate ship, several huge swimming pools, lazy river, flow rider surf attraction, game arcades, and live entertainment. Beaches Resort combines several enclaves and is a massive site.
Water sports include Hobie Cat sailboats, water tricycles, kayaks, paddleboards, and snorkel gear.
Day pass rates fluctuate according to availability and vacancy at the resort, ranging from about $370-700 per adult, and $180 per child. All food and drinks are included.
Sailrock at South Caicos
To promote interest in the quiet island of South Caicos, the luxury Sailrock Resort is offering a unique day pass and island hopping excursion from Providenciales.
South Caicos offers a completely different perspective to the developed Grace Bay and Providenciales. The small island is the fishing capital of the Turks and Caicos, with the quaint settlement of Cockburn Harbour and remnants of the old sea salt industry.
The package includes round trip flights (20 minutes each way) by small plane from Providenciales to South Caicos, transport on South Caicos to the Sailrock Resort, and access to the resort’s amenities, bicycles, and the non-powered water sports equipment of kayaks, paddleboards, and Hobie Cat sailboats. The price is $175 per person, plus taxes. Contact the resort for reservations.
Club Med Turkoise
The adults-only Club Med Turkoise has been operating in the Turks and Caicos since the late 1980s, and has always offered great water sports, outdoor activities, and entertainment.
The day pass at Club Med has been one of the best-kept activity secrets for visitors to Providenciales, as it allows access to a wide range of water sports and activities at a great price.
There are three passes available from Club Med, a day pass for $149 (10 AM to 6:30 PM), an evening pass for $209 (5 PM to 12 AM), and a full day pass for $279 (10 AM to 1 AM). The minimum entry age for Club Med is 18.
Boat and snorkeling excursions may not be included with day passes.
