Travel Tips for Providenciales Island

The natives are not Bahamians

by providencerunner

I got a long lecture from one of the locals explaining that although Turks and Caicos is at the end of the chain of Bahamian Islands, they are not the same as the Bahamas. As most of the islands are, the people here are very proud of their own island.

Humpbacks off of Turks

by DSwede

Providenciales is located on a prime migratory path of the humpback whales. If you are out on the boats fishing or diving, you might just see one. I was lucky enough to see one with a group of divers while we still had all our gear on and we got within feet of a ~30ft male.

Wood Oven Pizza

by cjg1 about Bella Napoli

Bella Napoli is the Pizza joint of the resort. There are a large grouping of tables by the Caribbean pool or you can do take out. Liz and I often stopped here for a pizza snack when we were lounging on the beach. Table service here is very fast so we never bothered with the take out option. The Pizzeria serves a variety of pizzas; Margarita, Hawaiian, white, pepperoni, veggie and other specialty pizzas. The pizzas are baked in a brick oven and are quite tasty. The pizzas are individual mini pizzas and are perfect for one person if it's a meal or split between two people for a snack. The Hawaiian Pizza here was very good and I also liked the Pepperoni.

Grace Bay

by cjg1

Grace Bay is the perfect area for beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts .
Grace Bay is full of activity: catamarans, snorkeling, scuba, swimming, kayaks and just lounging on the beach. Grace Bay is part of the Princess Alexandra National Park and therefore enjoys enforced protection by law. No jet skis or water-skiing is allowed due to the reefs. The reefs provide protecting from rough surf which makes the beach area quite calm and safe for adults and children to swim without worry.

Take a Dip in the Riviera Pool

by cjg1

The Riviera Pool is the zero entry pool located in the French Village. The pool is surrounded by the lush gardens of the French Village. Cabanas and lounge chairs surround the perimeter of the pool. An Italian colonnade with large terrace overlooks the pool on one end. The other end has the swim up pol bar and lounge area. The pool is very large with a separate kiddie pool on one side, a large jacuzzi and a pool bar. The pool is shallow with the greatest depth being five feet. Plenty of floating mats in tropical colors are available at either end of the pool for guests.

Liz and I enjoyed swimming in the French pool/ It was less crowded than the other pools and closer to our room. Relaxing on a mat with a tropical drink and floating through the pool was a favorite activity of ours. We met several couple during our honeymoon and had fun sitting around the pool bar enjoying some drinks and discussing our life.
