Some hotels and resorts have smaller, in-house fitness centres, and several offer facilities such as tennis courts.
A private rugby pitch is located in the Grace Bay Village site, and a football pitch and the National Stadium are located centrally in the Venetian Road area.
Some businesses offer pilates and yoga directly on the beach, usually in small groups of a few people.
In the last few years, a strong open water swim movement has taken hold on Providenciales, and several organized training and competition events take place every year.
Stand up paddle boarding, or “SUPing”, is an excellent core workout, and the wetland paddling and flat waters of the country are difficult to match in terms of natural beauty.
On breezy days, SUP down-winders are great, as they add an exciting element to the open water distances. During optimal conditions for this activity, little wind waves can be caught and “surfed” for extra speed. Down-winders require a bit of transport organization as downwind travel is only feasible. Transport by vehicle or boat back to the starting point is typically necessary.
It’s difficult to find a more tranquil setting than one of the spectacular beaches on Providenciales. Several of the local yoga studios offer regularly scheduled classes for all skill levels, both outdoors and inside.
For some, simply relaxing at the world's best beach may not offer quite enough tranquillity and wellbeing. The Turks and Caicos Islands offers a wide arrange of spas offering a numerous list of treatments.
Many of the larger resorts have on-site spas, but there are many independent spas as well. A few businesses provide a mobile service, so if you're staying at a vacation villa, they can come right to you. If you’re looking for the ultimate serene setting, a few spas also feature ocean and beachfront facilities.
There’s a complete range of amenities to choose from, including cleansing facials, massages, manicures and pedicures, hot stone massages, wax treatments, salt scrubs, and romantic couples massages. Organic products are the typical choice at many of our spas and salons.
Many spas offer package deals which combine several wellness treatments under one rate. The typical wellness package includes a full body massage, manicure, and facial.
When you book your accommodation, inquire about complimentary spa visits or add-ons, as many of the luxury resorts and villas work with local spa and salon partners.
We highly advise reserving in advance of expected visit. Many establishments are able to accommodate walk-ins, yet there is no guarantee of availability.
Cancellations made with reasonable notice usually do not incur fees or charges, yet enquire before booking if there is a likelihood of such an event.
As is the case with many accommodations and activities, rates vary a bit according to the time of year, and tend to be highest during the tourism “ high season”.
