WATER SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES

Sunset

BEACHES

Our spectacular beaches are complimented by some of the most vibrant turquoise and blue waters in the Caribbean—a view that has to be seen to be believed.
The widely-recognized Grace Bay Beach is befittingly the most-popular beach in the Turks and Caicos, and is the nation’s hallmark. There are miles of soft sand, vivid turquoise water, and no crowds.
Many of the north coast beaches on Providenciales are part of the spectacular Princess Alexandra National Park, which includes barrier reef, shallow bays, and marine wetland islands. 
If you’d like to experience fascinating and diverse marine life, great reefs surround the Turks and Caicos. The Bight Reef and Smith's Reef in central Providenciales are found close of the beach and are perfect for shore snorkeling. You’ll be able to see colorful fish, turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, and small sharks in incredible reef and seagrass settings.
For those interested in the exciting water sport of kiteboarding, the brilliantly-turquoise Long Bay Beach is a fantastic kite location and one of the finest spots in the Caribbean. The wind here is consistent and the water is the perfect depth with a soft sandy bottom, which makes for a great learning environment.
On the wild side are the remote beaches at Malcolm’s Road, West Harbour Bluff and Northwest Point, where reefs, coastal cliffs and clear water can be found. The western coastlines are quite close to the edge of the underwater marine plateau of the Caicos Islands and thus have a bit more of a rugged atmosphere, with deep blue water and rolling waves.

WATER SPORTS

Providenciales has a perfect water sport for everyone. There’s exquisite scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, jet skiing, tubing, fly boarding, and sailing to just name a few.

The Turks and Caicos has always had a great reputation for scuba diving, which is supported by some of the best wall diving in the tropical Atlantic. There are many sites where the depth drops abruptly from the barrier reef to 7000 feet (2100 m).

Eco-tours via kayak or paddleboard and fun and easy for all ages, and it's common to see turtles, baby sharks, stingrays, conch, starfish, birds, and more. Tours often visit the incredible Princess Alexandra National Park and Mangrove Cay, Donna Cay, and Little Water Cay.

A complex barrier reef systems surrounds much of our archipelago, and this network supports distinct spur and groove reef formations, coral arches, and sand chutes.

Marine wildlife is varied, with amazing diversity of hard and soft corals, fish, turtles, rays, sharks and dolphins. There are many qualified dive shops with professional scuba instructors if you’re looking to learn this popular water sport. During the winter months, our islands are also visited by humpback whales! Whale watching is available from Providenciales, Grand Turk, and Salt Cay, and on some trips it may even possible to snorkel with the whales!


Snorkeling charter in the amazing waters of the Turks and Caicos.

One of our recommended things to do in Turks and Caicos is to take a snorkeling cruise that visits the  barrier reefs and coral heads that surround the islands. 

Father and Son Fishing

FISHING

As small islands, prefect conditions for deep sea fishing are found just minutes from the dock. There’s a range of private fishing charters to choose from, with vessels ranging from large and luxurious sport fishing boats to smaller and fast wahoo boats.
Reef and bottom fishing is another great activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family. There are snappers, groupers, jacks, and yellowtails.
We also have extensive and beautiful marine flats for bonefishing. The waters of the Turks and Caicos features great clarity, so it’s possible to spot bonefish, tarpon, and barracuda prowling the shallows from quite a distance.

BOAT CHARTERS

There’s a plethora of boat tours and charters to choose from, and these trips visit the amazing sites that make the Turks and Caicos such a special place. Activities, vessels and tour atmosphere varies greatly by each local excursion company.
Several small cays are found to the east of Providenciales, and these isles offer amazing and secluded beaches, the inquisitive and friendly Turks and Caicos Rock Iguana, and snorkeling reefs.
A bit farther off is Fort George Cay, where 1700s cannons can be seen in the ocean where Fort Saint George once stood.
West Caicos is also an excellent destination. There are ocean cliffs that are perfect for jumping off of, exquisite snorkeling, and the Victorian-era historical site of Yankee Town.
A perfect way to end the day is a sunset boat cruise. If you’re visiting during the full moon period, you may be able to watch the glowworms light up the water as well!
