Providenciales, ‘Provo’ for short, spans thirty eight miles and is found on the western end of the string of islands. It is the most developed of the forty low-lying coral islands that make up the archipelago. Providenciales international airport is where most international flights into Turks and Caicos arrive. You will also come across a great many restaurants, spas, boutique shops, a world class golf course and the scenic Grace Bay.
Grace Bay is the heart of tourism in Provo. Here a coral reef stretches across the water, close to shore and is home to a host of marine creatures. The beach at Grace Bay is twelve miles of powder white sand kissed by the crystal blue sea. It is home to Princess Alexandra Marine Park and the first conch farm in the world. One of the most popular things to do at Grace Bay is water sports. Snorkeling along the Bight Reef and Smith’s Reef snorkeling trails in the underwater park is wonderful way to admire the plentiful aquatic life and pass an afternoon. You can also say hello to ‘Jo Jo’, a wild bottlenose dolphin, who resides in the bay and is people friendly, much to the delight of visitors. Jo Jo has been declared a national treasure.
