In a recent Facebook post, guests were asked to name their favorite spots on Provo. There were a ton of replies, but there were some common themes:
Grace Bay Beach
Influential magazine US News and World Report has just named Turks and Caicos one of the top 22 honeymoon destinations in the world. Why?
Turks & Caicos are perhaps one of the least developed Caribbean destinations — and make for an intimate and somewhat secluded honeymoon experience. Besides the beaches, the main attractions in Turks & Caicos are snorkeling, scuba diving and spa treatments, all of which can be enjoyed by newly married couples.
Grace Bay Beach, with its sugary sand and views of onyx ocean and turquoise sky is itself regarded as one of the world’s top beaches.
Iguana Island is a small cay off the northeastern tip of Provo that’s accessible only by boat. The resident iguanas have become habituated to people, and actually will run out to greet visitors. Close to Grace Bay, Iguana Island makes a perfect afternoon excursion.
Bight Reef, Princess Alexandra National Park
Located just off Grace Bay, this easily accessible reef teems with tropical fish, and is also a perfect destination for glass-bottomed kayak tours.
Located on the wild, less developed western end of Provo, Chalk Sound is a shallow lagoon dotted with small islets that dot a beautiful turquoise vista. Perfect for birdwatching or just taking fantastic picture, Chalk Sound is great for families.
Half Moon Bay
Tour operators offer a popular half-day excursion here, dropping you off with chairs, umbrellas, and refreshments and returning later to pick you up. It’s also included in many multi-stop tours, though the visit is shorter.
