There are so many incredible things to do and sights to see on our breathtaking Turks & Caicos island of Providenciales, while vacationing here at The Sands at Grace Bay. Here are a just few of our favorite island spots, that our guests love to visit during their island stays:
1. Princess Alexandra National Park – With over 6500 acres of protected wildlife and uninhabited beach areas, this park is the perfect place to go to enjoy nature and view iguanas, ospreys, mangroves and the magnificent coral reefs and marine life that are located just offshore and considered one of the Caribbean’s best snorkeling spots. Our guests love kayaking through the mangroves and walking along the tranquil beaches in this protected wildlife reserve.
2. Provo Golf Club – this top-ranked course offers breathtaking views and earns consistent “top ten” course ratings in the Caribbean. The manicured greens, lush fairways, extensive lakes on both the front and back nine holes, PGA pro’s on hand and full service clubhouse make this a golfer’s paradise!
3. Da Conch Shack – You haven’t truly experienced our island’s favorite food from the sea – Conch – until you’ve visited this open-air Conch Shack restaurant and bar, which serves conch in nearly every way imaginable! You’ll enjoy fresh seafood alongside the ocean at this colorful Turks & Caicos landmark – where you can eat barefoot on the beach and sip rum punch while enjoying the ocean breezes.
4. Cheshire Hall Plantation – This is one of the island’s most historic attractions, a 200 year-old former cotton plantation that offers spectacular views of the island, overlooking much of Western Providenciales. The building ruins have been carefully preserved by the National Trust, which also leads weekday guided tours of Cheshire Hall from 8:30am – 4pm for $5 per person.
