The long and winding Venetian Road follows the Turtle Tail peninsula, which ends with a small beach along portions of the southern coast. A residential area with private homes and vacation villas, Venetian Road offers one of the most scenic drives on Providenciales as it weaves past low hills overlooking the Caicos Banks and the wetlands of Flamingo Lake and Juba Sound.
Having gone years with a rough, unpaved road, the road has recently been paved through a private citizens initiative, and is now one of the most pleasant and scenic routes in the Turks and Caicos.
Vacation Rental Villas and the new Wymara Villas
Several high-end luxury villas are located on the bluffs and coasts in this region of Providenciales. Newly-completed are the luxury Wymara Villas, a waterfront cluster of homes located near the South Side Marina.
Beach and Access
Due to the rocky ironshore cliffs that comprise most of the coastline in this district, the beaches are generally sparse and inaccessible. There are no public ‘official’ accesses, including at Turtle Tail Beach, but there are areas to park and walk to the beach (although this is generally over private, undeveloped land).
