Great activities and things to do in Turks & Caicos
In the Turks and Caicos, there are plenty of activities and things to do to occupy your time, or you can choose to simply do nothing at all and enjoy the tranquil setting that Grace Bay Beach provides.
For those of you in need of a little stimulation, here are some ideas for things to do:
First start with water sports (and there are lots of them!) and our unique marine environment makes us a top spot for scuba divers, fishermen, wind surfers and other aqua adventurers. Check out the list of things to do in and around the water here We can recommend our favorite operators for any kind of water activity you can imagine, and help with the details of your adventure. Many operators will pick you up right at The West Bay Club, with some even coming right onto the beach.
On land here in Providenciales, we can help arrange an island tour. Popular attractions include:
- Cheshire Hall Plantation, site of an old cotton plantation
- The Conch Farm, where you can see how our most famous delicacy is raised
- Blue Hills, one of the original settlements on the island and full of local charm
- Chalk Sound, a stunningly beautiful inlet that is almost electric in color
Providenciales also offers a championship caliber golf course (home of the 2009 Caribbean Amateur Championships), that also includes a comfortable club house open for dinner and lunch, as well as a driving range, putting green and tennis courts.
There are plenty of shopping options on the island too, with shops, boutiques, and galleries concentrated in the central Grace Bay area. Look for great bargains and designer brands at The Salt Mills Plaza, The Regent Village and Ports of Call, all within a 10 minute drive from The West Bay Club.
Scooter rentals can also be arranged to tour the island. Horseback riding with Provo Ponies is a fun adventure, with riding instruction available and beach rides available most days. For the really adventurous, take a guided ATV tour of the remote beaches in the northwest corner of our island.
If you want to get out on the water and explore, consider an island hopping tour with Silver Deep, Big Blue or Catch The Wave. They can take you to some of the nearby islands like Little Water Cay (home of our famous iguana sanctuary), Pine Cay (make sure to stop at the aptly named Sand Dollar Point), Fort George Cay (where you can see the remains of old British navy cannons that once protected the island), Dellis Cay (soon to be home to an exclusive private island community) and Parrot Cay (where you might spot a movie idol or rock star), Most tour operators will arrange for a lunch – maybe even a freshly-caught fish and conch BBQ on the beach! They can even drop you in idyllic seclusion on a remote beach and pick you up later in the day.
A ferry service can shuttle you to North Caicos in about 25 minutes. North Caicos is a throwback in time with a small population, lush green vegetation, flocks of wild pink flamingos and friendly local people that will welcome you with open arms. It’s a great way to get a glimpse of island life from years gone by.
From North Caicos you can drive across the causeway to Middle Caicos and experience that island’s natural beauty, including the scenic Mudjin Harbor beach, the historic Bambarra settlement, and the extensive network of natural caves that are fun to explore.
One thing is for sure, you won’t run out of fun things to do in Turks & Caicos!
