There’s so many fun and exciting things to do on Providenciales. Due to the beautiful marine environment of the Turks and Caicos, it of course comes as no surprise that everything shown here revolves around the ocean.
Your vacation in the Turks and Caicos is the perfect time push your limits and try a new activity.
For those who prefer solid ground under their feet, a wilderness adventure may allow you to see natural and historical sights seen by very few others.
One of the best features of the Turks and Caicos are the sights, beaches and uninhabited islands that remain largely undiscovered and unexplored. Many boat excursions pick up guests directly on the beach fronting their resort – a perfect way to start the day!
If you make it away from the famous attractions of Grace Bay Beach, Leeward Beach, Half Moon Bay and Little Water Cay (amazing attractions in their own right!), you’ll get to experience the tranquil and undeveloped side of the country.
West Caicos is a great example. Due to its distance from Provo, the only way to get to this uninhabited island is by a custom boat charter. However, there is so much to enjoy; beautiful scenes, incredible snorkelling, cliff jumping, historical ruins and more.
Another great aspect of visiting the more-remote islands and reefs in the Turks and Caicos is the journey out. If you spend more time on the water, you’ll be far more likely to experience an unforgettable and spontaneous wildlife encounter. It could be a pod of wild dolphins, jumping eagle rays or snorkelling with humpback whales.
On the other side of the country, North and Middle Caicos hide a treasure trove of landscapes and natural features, including caves, secluded beaches and Loyalist historical ruins. It’s easy to plan your visit from Providenciales. Simply reserve a rental car, catch the passenger ferry boat, and explore.
Salt Cay and South Caicos, once mainstays of the sea salt industry, are two islands that haven’t change much in the last century. There’s the salinas, old colonial buildings, and a quiet atmosphere. Landscape and nature photographers will appreciate the sweeping coastal vistas and undeveloped coasts of these little islands.
Grand Turk is another great place to visit and is home to the nation’s capital city of Cockburn Town and the only cruise ship port in the Turks and Caicos. This island offers a quaint British-Bermudian beachfront town and many of the country’s top historical sights, including the Grand Turk Lighthouse, the National Museum and Her Majesty's Prison.
