What to do in Turks and Caicos

Take one part modern Caribbean and stir in one part British restraint. Add a dash of the laid-back hey-mon vibe of a subtropical island, and you’ve got the flavor of the Turks and Caicos. Of the 40 islands and cays in this British West Indies territory, only eight are populated, including the main island of Providenciales, commonly known as Provo. Visitors spend most of their time on the 12-mile strip of Grace Bay Beach, sometimes springing for a day trip to the islands of Grand Turk and Salt Cay. When it comes to food, Provo surprises. Fast food franchises are a no-no here—when Kentucky Fried Chicken defied the ban in the mid-‘90s, pouring over a million dollars into a single restaurant, the government promptly shut it down. Why would anyone crave extra-crispy in a land where conch ceviche, fritters, and chowder are in endless supply?
