What to do in Providenciales

Every Caribbean island has its specialty: Tortola has primo sailing, Dominica boasts a crunchy-granola hiking scene, and on Turks and Caicos’s Providenciales (Provo if you’re in-the-know), it’s all about the beach. Sure, Provo has upscale shopping, fine dining, and wicked watersports, but it all piggybacks on its miles of sugar-sand shore. Located at the heart of it all is Grace Bay, which routinely gathers accolades for having one of the best beaches pretty much anywhere. The long-term development plan of this spotless stretch of white-on-turquoise has maintained understated luxury and exclusivity. Generous spacing between high-end, low-volume resorts means Grace Bay never feels like a zoo, and it’s the ideal jumping-off point for the carnival of world-class diving, sailing, and windsurfing found in Provo’s nearshore waters.
