The Beauty of these Island is in the water. You really must try and do at least one boat trip while you are here.
Take a Sail Provo tour. They do half day and sunset cruises that include going over to Iguana Island, snorkeling and then back along the cays and the Island at Sunset. Or just a Sunset cruise. Very romantic.
There are two great snorkeling spots that you can just walk in off the beach from. One, called The Bight Reef, is outside of Coral Gardens and one down to your left at the end of the beach there. It’s called Smiths Reef.
There is nothing wrong in just laying out on the beach….Nothing at all!!
But if you would like to do something then it really is a great idea to get a car and spend a day or two driving around the Island.
It is only 42sq miles but you want to allow time to stop off for lunch and other “pit” stops.
Go over to Blue Hills and visit Da Conch Shack for lunch. I highly recommend this.
The two sides of the Island are very different. The North shore, has the stunning Grace Bay Beach. It is protected by a reef and is very easy to swim in and great for snorkelling, with Coral Heads to explore.
The South shore is all Iron Shore and is the Caicos Banks as far as the eye can see. It’s like a shallow lake. And out at Chalk sound, the color of the water is amazing. I remember being in one of the resorts about ten years ago and they had put blue food coloring in a vase of flowers. A tourist asked about the Water and one of the receptionist’s commented that they go every day to Chalk Sound to get fresh turquoise water for the vase. The lady in question replied that she would be going out there forth with to retrieve some of the water!! Bless..
Go and take a look and you’ll see what I mean.
You can pick up some staples for your condo. It’s always a good idea to have something in your condo rather than relying on the restaurant all the time.
Take a drive down to The Turtle Cove Marina to look at the huge mega yachts docked there. You can have a casual lunch at the Tiki hut right on the dock.
You can go over to The Conch Farm, that is at the end of Leeward Highway Easterly.
If you are adventurous you can take a drive over to Malcolm Roads Beach or a beautiful cove just past Osprey Rock.
You can go around the corner there and climb up through a cave to see the Sailors etchings from a few hundred years ago.
There is another spot on the hill overlooking Sapodilla Bay where you can see more carvings.
Try and have a few nice lunches overlooking the ocean. I love sitting at Bay Bistro at The Sibonne hotel.
Have a few nice cocktails on the beach at sunset and enjoy!.
Ask Bill at The Grace Bay Club to make you a Caiproska. It is his speciality!.
Have a wonderful time here.
