Grace Bay is a stupendously beautiful bay which curls along the north shore of Providenciales for 12 miles (19 km) and is lined with powdery white sands. It offers some of the best snorkelling spots on the island as well as some of the most exclusive vacation rentals in Turks and Caicos.
Located just south of the Bahamas and a short flight from Miami, Turks and Caicos comprise of approximately 40 stunningly beautiful coral islands (8 of which are inhabited). Turks and Caicos are also one of the most exclusive and luxurious destinations in the Caribbean. The islands are charming and very unspoiled with beautiful powdery white sandy beaches, endless crystal clear turquoise waters, nature reserves and several beautiful national parks.
The Turks and Caicos Islands which have a population of 22,000 based mainly on Providenciales have a total land area of 166 square miles scattered across 10,000 square miles of ocean. The Caribbean Sea lies to the south of the islands, whilst the Atlantic lies to the north and west. The islands are connected by a few ferry services and scheduled small plane charters. There is a bridge which connects North and Middle Caicos. The capital Cockburn Town is located on Grand Turk which is also the easternmost island.
Providenciales is the most developed of the islands and it is also where you will find many of our luxury Turks and Caicos vacation rentals. Providenciales is home to the exquisitely beautiful Grace Bay, a 12 mile (19km) long stretch of pristine white sandy beach. Providenciales is also the gateway to Parrot Cay which is a stunningly beautiful privately owned one thousand acre island with many exquisite Turks and Caicos villas to rent.
The twenty-two-mile Columbus Passage divides the islands into two groups – Grand Turk and Salt Cay lie to the east while West, North, Middle, East and South Caicos and Providenciales are on the west side. The passage itself acts as transit point for migrating Humpback Whales, spotted Eagle Rays, Manta Rays and turtles and the rich waters are home to Blue Marlin, Tuna and Wahoo – perfect for the big game fisherman. In addition, bordering the edges of the islands is one of the largest coral reef systems in the world, making the islands perfect for diving and snorkelling enthusiasts. Turks and Caicos is the ultimate destination for a luxury holiday. It is a wonderful destination for romance, family holidays and adventure seekers. Turks and Caicos are without a doubt the perfect island getaway.
Things To Do In Turks And Caicos
You will never be short of things to do in Turks and Caicos. Here we list some of the many activities available on these islands.
The Provo Golf and Country Club is rated one of the Caribbean’s Top 10 by Golf Magazine, and was awarded four stars by Golf Digest Magazine. It is an 18-hole, par 72, championship course designed by Karl Litten that first opened in 1992. The course is conveniently located just past Leeward dock on Providenciales. The Club’s pro-shop can supply visitors with everything they need for a round of golf, including tailor-made Burner clubs for rental.
Horse riding on the Turks and Caicos beaches is a popular sport. Provo Ponies offer guided rides around quiet dirt roads, canals and secluded beaches. More experienced riders will have the opportunity to canter along the beach and take horses into the shallow ocean waters.
The shallow waters of the Caicos Banks form a 2000 sq mile habitat for the elusive, hard-fighting bonefish, the ultimate test of angler’s patience and skill. Tarpon can also be caught in the mangrove lagoons and are known as “Silver Rockets” for a good reason. Visitors can also wade off the beach into fish full flats on most of the islands.
The Turks and Caicos Islands offer very good water-based activities. The waters surrounding the islands are clear, calm and exceptionally beautiful. The white sand and shallow waters mean sunshine reflects off the seabed, creating water that is lit from beneath to give it the startling turquoise colour for which the islands are famous.
There are many trails that wind through mangroves and wetland ecosystems. Middle Caicos has the best hiking thanks to the 10 mile (16 km) long Reserve and Trail system that runs along the scenic north shore and passes colonial plantations and lagoons with flamingos.
