If you have survived the Polar Vortex, why not make plans for a quick escape to Provo on the Turks and Caicos?
The kids are out of school, to it’s a perfect time to enjoy clear blue skies, crystal-clear water and an island lifestyle that can’t be beat.
Here are 5 Caribbean spring break vacation ideas on Provo:
1. Visit the National Environmental Centre and Children’s Park
The National Environmental Centre (NEC), located on Lower Bight Road in Providenciales, opened its doors on April 21st,2007. The exhibits and displays within the Centre focus on the natural habitats and ecosystems of the Turks and Caicos Islands. There are also rotating exhibits, highlighting ongoing research activities in the Islands.
A Children’s Park is located nearby.
2. Visit Chalk Sound
The western half of Provo is mostly barren wilderness, home to the island’s best natural attraction, Chalk Sound National Park. The park is a three-mile-long (5km) bay a few miles southwest of downtown Providenciales. The color of the water is a uniform turquoise and studded with countless mushroom-like tiny islets. Also on the western part of the island is Northwest Point Marine National Park, which extends to nearby reefs and several saline lakes that attract breeding and migrant waterfowl. You’ll have to hike to get there.
3. Go horseback riding
Enjoy horseback riding on the beach and into the shallow waters with a backdrop of white sand and turquoise water. Ride along quiet dirt roads, canals and secluded beaches of Long Bay Hills, Providenciales in the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands.
4. Thursday Fish Fry
Every Thursday from 5:30p to 9:30p at the Bight (Children’s) Park, over a dozen local food vendors, entertainers and cultural acts come together for Island Fish Fry to create an evening of “all things TCI.”
5. Relax on Grace Bay Beach
Recognized as one of the top 1o beaches in the entire world, Grace Bay Beach combines heavenly turquoise waters with powdery, soft sand, perfect for a romantic getaway, or a special retreat for your entire family.
