Enjoy the water
First things first! When you’re flying over TCI on arrival, the first thing you’ll notice is the stunning color of the ocean surrounding the islands. This blue hue is due to the shallow coastal waters and powder white sands that reflect the sunlight. Besides it being jaw-dropping in its beauty, it also does for a lot of fun under the sun. Grace Bay Beach, Long Bay Beach, Taylor Bay (just to name a few) are some of Provo’s most sought after destinations -and it’s not hard to see why. You and your loved ones can relax and enjoy this magical landscape with walks on the beach, basking in the sun or just breathing the gentle Caribbean trade winds. These world-renowned beaches are enough to make Providenciales the ideal tropical destination. However, there’s more (much more!)
Tours and Excursions
Once you soak in the immense beauty of the surroundings, it’s time to explore beyond the shoreline. You’ll find there are many tours being offered in Provo. Anywhere from marine life-oriented or relaxing sight seeing excursions, all the way to the more exhilarating experiences. Provo has got it all!

Relax in your luxury villa
Luxury amenities in paradise is powerful combination. Our villas are equipped with the luxury amenities to really make this a one in a million type of vacation. Most of them sit beachfront to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches -Grace Bay Beach, Long Bay Beach, Taylor Bay just to name a few. Having said that, firing the BBQ (included in all our villas) and sitting back to watch the sunset with the family could be the highlight of your trip.
If you’re traveling with thrill seekers there’s a place for them too. Providenciales’ calm waters offer the ideal spot for all types of water sports. Jet skiing, parasailing, kite & wind surfing, scuba…you could even ride an inflatable donut if that’s what you’re into! Tons of options to satisfy the most adventurous of spirits.
Snorkeling Smith’s Reef
Smith’s Reef is a protected natural coral reef system in the Turtle Cove neighborhood. This is where all of our one bedroom cottages and most of our other villas are located. These villas offer direct access to Smith’s Reef -the absolute best snorkeling on the island! The abundant underwater marine life and the crystal clear waters make it all possible. If you’re not booked for the Turtle Cove neighborhood worry not, because of its central location, your villa is about a 10-15 minute drive, tops.
Go see the pirate carvings!
Yes! Centuries old, pirate carvings! Take the family for a bit of a hike (as it is atop a hill with spectacular views to Chalk Sound) and you’ll find a treasure in the form a history rich, archeological tale. Pirates used this particular spot as a lookout point, or maybe they just liked the view (we couldn’t blame them!). Contact us for directions and one of our lovely villa specialist will tell you how to get there.
Explore the island
Keeping on the adventurous theme -why not explore the island? Get a car from one of the many car rental agencies and drive to different beaches. Make sure to check out Chalk Sound, Long Bay Beach, Taylor Bay, and of course Grace Bay Beach. You can also visit the furthermost western tip of the Island and watch a stunning tropical sunset. Just drive and sea for yourself.
Eat out at one of the many restaurants
Providenciales’ fishermen provide most of the seafood served in the local restaurants, so chances are you’ll be eating freshly caught seafood! Make sure to try the conch as it is Provo’s main export; also because it’s delicious. The Turtle Cove neighborhood houses 6 of the best restaurants in the island.

After that, you lot can enjoy a well-deserved meal & drinks at the Las Brisas Restaurant right on Chalk Sound.
