The Providenciales International Airport serves Providenciales Island in the Turks and Caicos Islands, part of the Caribbean. It is a small airport with just one terminal and one runway. The airport is quite busy for its size, so cheap flights to Providenciales should be available. There are plans to add another terminal and lengthen the runway to allow for more air traffic. The airport has a restaurant and a duty-free shop, as well as other gift shops. Also, Wi-Fi internet access is available. The only transportation options are taxis and renting a car, as no buses operate from the airport.
Despite being the most developed of the islands with lots of tourists, transportation is not very well developed. The best option is to rent a car, which you can do at the airport. Driving around is safe and relatively easy. There is a type of bus service available, called jitneys, which are small mini vans. After your Providenciales flights have arrived, getting taxis from the airport and around the island is the best option for those who do not want to drive themselves.
The resorts are concentrated around Grace Bay where the beautiful beaches, which attract most tourists to this island, are located. It is a great place to come and relax with its white sand and turquoise water. There is a reef on the beach, which is ideal for people who wish to go snorkeling. There are some great boat trips organized, such as The Beluga, which can transport you around the island to deserted beaches and good places for snorkeling. Horse riding is another popular activity, with Provo Ponies providing some guided tours of the island"perfect for relaxation after your flights to Providenciales.
The best shops are centered around the resorts on the island. Regent Village is a new shopping center in the Grace Bay area with some upmarket shops. There are plenty of jewelry shops such as Jai's, which is worth a visit. There are many good restaurants that cater to tourists, such as the Lemon Café, which has a beautiful garden area. The food is of Mediterranean influence, such as the hummus and tabouli salad. For more authentic Caribbean food, Da Conch Shack is a good example. Their conch sampler is well worth trying.
