Things to do

Grace Bay, Providenciales

Grace Bay, Providenciales

Stretching for more than eight kilometers, Grace Bay is one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Powdery sand meets crystal-clear water in striking shades of blue along this exquisite slice of coast, and coral reefs shimmer just offshore. Part of the Princess Alexandra Marine Park, Grace Bay Beach is the focal point for tourism on the island of Providenciales.
Diving & Snorkeling

Diving & Snorkeling

Diving or snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands are among the most popular things to do on the islands. Surrounded by one of the most extensive coral reef systems in the world, the islands sit on a vast underwater plateau with dramatic drop-offs not far from shore, making it an excellent destination for wall dives - especially in Grand Turk.
Chalk Sound National Park, Providenciales

Chalk Sound National Park, Providenciales

An eye-popping shade of turquoise, Chalk Sound is a beautiful lagoon with limestone deposits separated from the ocean by a thin stretch of sand. Sprinkled throughout the sparkling waters are tiny green-topped rock islands, which are home to many iguanas. About a 20- to 30-minute drive away from Grace Bay, the area is a beautiful place to take photographs.
Little Water Cay Tour

Little Water Cay Tour

About 456 meters across the sea from Providenciales, Little Water Cay (locally known as "Iguana Island") is home to rare and endangered rock iguanas, and you can hop aboard a boat tour to see these friendly creatures. The iguanas once roamed throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands, but domestic dogs and cats all but wiped them out - except on Little Water Cay where they are protected.

Crossing Place Trail Hike, Middle Caico

A National Trust Heritage site, Crossing Place Trail is a coastal path established in the 18th century by plantation settlers and slaves. Today, the path's eight kilometers of hiking and biking trails follow the old path from the village of Lorimers to the place where islanders crossed the sandbars to trade with the inhabitants of North Caicos long ago.
Mudjin Harbour, Middle Caicos

Mudjin Harbour, Middle Caicos

A five-kilometer slice of coastline along the north of Middle Caicos, Mudjin Harbour is one of the most photographed sites on the Turks and Caicos Islands. Breathtaking limestone cliffs overhang the half-moon lagoon and its arc of white-sand beach. Dragon Island lies just offshore, and you can access the tiny island via a sandbar at low tide. Under calm conditions snorkeling is also great here. Beach lovers can access Mudjin Harbour by car or by hiking Crossing Place Trail.
Pine Cay

Pine Cay

This gorgeous 800-acre private island, a 15-minute boat ride from Providenciales, was once a hideout for pirates and is now a hideout for affluent nature lovers who want to escape the stress of their busy lives. The island has no phones, TVs, or cars in order to preserve its peaceful ambience. One of the island's best natural features is its magnificent four-kilometer-long stretch of beach that rivals Grace Bay in beauty.
