Things to do

snorkel coral gardens

Snorkel the reef at Coral Gardens

Turks & Caicos is famous for its coral reef system, but you don’t have to be a scuba diver to enjoy it. You don’t even have to go out in a boat. Coral Gardens is the most accessible snorkeling point, located just a few yards off Grace Bay Beach. It’s right in front of Coral Garden condos in the Lower Bight area of Provo. There is a marked zone with species of coral identified by underwater signs. Best of all, it’s free!


Keep an eye out for Jo Jo the Dolphin

Our famous resident bottlenose dolphin regularly patrols the waters of Grace Bay. He’s friendly, but quick!

Book a private beach excursion to remote cay

Ever dream of a romantic getaway on your own private island? Live the dream, at least for a day, and charter a boat – power or sail – to whisk you to one of TCI’s remote cays for an undisturbed day of relaxation and solitude. Most operators will include everything you need, including a picnic lunch

Horseback ride on the beach

Provo Ponies is a small riding stable 10 minutes drive away from Grace Bay. Horses LOVE the water!

We do two rides a day. 9:30 am and 3:30 pm. All our rides take you down roads through trails to Long Bay Beach where you will be able to ride your horse into the shallow waters off the Caicos Banks. Upon arrival you will sign liability forms, be briefed on safety and given a quick lesson on your horse. Once all riders in the group are up on their horses and tack is adjusted, you will head down the road and through a windy path to beautiful Long Bay Beach.

Enjoy a beach BBQ and bonfire

You’re on an island… why not enjoy an authentic beach BBQ party? Local caterers and event planners can take care of all the details, right down to building a blazing bonfire and arranging for a live band.  Sometimes they put on group/public sessions as well, so you just have to buy tickets and enjoy the evening hassle free.  Legendary full moon parties are put on by Kissing Fish Catering! Somerset on Grace Bay also has one on weekly during the winter season.


Visit the National Environmental Center

A fun and informative way to learn about the indigenous wildlife and environment of the Turks and Caicos. Located in the Lower Bight area, just across from the children’s park, the NEC has some interesting exhibits and events, as well as helpful staff who can answer your questions about just about anything related to the environment or the national park system in TCI. Admission is free and it’s open from 8AM to 4:30PM daily.


Semi Sub / Mermaid Tour

The Underseas Explorer is a semi-submarine that lets you see the reefs without getting wet. Tours leave from Turtle Cove Marina.  This is a fav for the kids as they compete on who could spot the most sea turtles.  Look out for Bella the live Mermaid that makes the occasional appearance underwater!

The buccaneers at Outback Adventures have been touring the hidden caves and looking for pirate’s treasure for 20 years. Join the fun on a 40-foot glass bottom boat that tours the secluded south side of Provo. Full day adventure includes BBQ lunch, snorkeling and unlimited drinks. Great for the whole family
