The best things to do in the Turks and Caicos Islands
Bight Reef near Grace Bay is a good place for snorkeling. Versatile reefs, a variety of colorful fish, and the occasional sighting of a sea turtle delight visitors who walk from Grace Bay. Next to it is Smith’s Reef, where divers can see rays, lobsters, turtles. Also, colorful fish while spending a memorable day in the water.
If you’re looking for a different way to explore the edge of Provo’s crystal clear waters, consider a horseback ride along the beach.
The Turks and Caicos Islands contain more than 40 islands, and several of them are uninhabited. These strings of islands and islets are worth a visit and offer a true sense of Caribbean isolation. It is quite convenient to jump from one island to another, as boats and planes are readily available to transport you between ports. Charter boats are a popular way to cross between the islands, and many offer snorkeling and/or scuba diving tours.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are known for the conch (sea snail). Several restaurants serve different dishes of this specialty of the islands such as conch fritters and Da Conch Shack in Providenciales can be found in the book 1000 places that you must have seen in your life ( 1,000 Places to See Before You Die ). In Caicos, you can visit the first and only conch farm that offers tours on its 10 privileged acres along the beach. And there is also an annual conch festival where visitors can eat fresh conch salads while enjoying fireworks and island beats on the beach.
