Providenciales is an ideal destination for beach-loving families. Local beaches include long sandy strands and rugged coastline. Pristine natural parks are perfect for ecological sightseeing. Monuments showcase evidence of the island’s colonial past. Humpback whales migrate right past the island’s coasts. Coral reefs are within easy reach. Altogether, the island offers a paradise of pleasures, from deep inland to beyond the surf. Several communities dot the island, providing a range of services. Providenciales retains plenty of rustic charm and wilderness, so it’s easy to get away from it all. Vacation Home Rentals offers Providenciales rentals throughout the island. Opt for a rental on the western side of the island for privacy and untouched natural beauty. Stay on the eastern coast for nearby amenities.
Whichever Providenciales rentals appeal to you, don’t miss out on a visit to Chalk Sound. The National Park is home to native Turks and Caicos Rock Iguanas
. The scrubby vegetation includes prickly pear cactus and exotic flora. Bonefish swim in the brilliant turquoise waters. Gulls, terns and herons walk the sugary sand beaches. For active families, the sound is a popular spot for kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding. Local agencies can rent you all the equipment you need. Northwest Point National Park is the other jewel of the island. The rocky coast is nicknamed the “iron shore.” Brown pelicans and ospreys walk the coastline. Birdwatchers can also spot tricolored herons, oyster-catchers, great egrets, and even flamingos. Northwest Point has choppier waters, making it less ideal for swimming. Older and more experienced swimmers may appreciate the spot for its fascinating snorkeling.
For families, Providenciales’ main attraction is its natural setting. The idyllic backdrop is a great place to cycle, boat, sail, dive, snorkel, fish, windsurf, or go horseback riding. The island also features many shops, restaurants, spas, and various cultural attractions. Cheshire Hall Plantation
is the most famous historical site on the Turks and Caicos Islands. Built in the early 1700s, the plantation stands just west of downtown Provo. Today, it offers the scant evidence of a cotton industry, which failed to take off on the island. Visitors can see ancient ruins and historical artifacts. Younger visitors can gaze at fascinating local wildlife, such as the site’s resident iguanas, butterflies, and birds. For children fascinated by sailors and pirates, Sapodilla Hill is a fascinating spot. Stand atop the cliff and look at the names of shipwrecked sailors and other dignitaries carved into the Sapodilla rocks. For best access, book a ride with one of many local charter agencies.
No matter what time of the year you’re visiting, there is always something going on in Providenciales. Some of the most family-friendly annual events include the Turks & Caicos Conch Festival
and the Annual Kite Flying Competition. The Conch Festival takes place each November and features contests, live music, food, and fun for the whole family. On Easter Monday, the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board organizes the Annual Kite Flying Competition. Activities include Easter egg hunting, food and music, and kite-flying.
