Providenciales is the main island in the Turks & Caicos chain and the destination for most visitors.
However, it can be tough when researching all the different travel websites to figure out what are the best activities for kids on Provo.
So, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 Turks & Caicos activities for families:
1. Visit the Children’s Park in “The Bight.”
Just off Lower Bight Road on Provo there lies an excellent children’s park. It has all the essentials of a good park, including the usual slides, swings and other fun obstacles that help kids burn off energy. There’s also plenty of shade and spots to sit down, plus shops nearby to purchase something cold to drink.
2. Visit the National Environmental Centre
Located across the street from the Children’s Park along Lower Bight Road, the National Environmental Centre (NEC) is a wonderful place the ecosystem of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The NEC is right near the beach… just steps away from world-famous Grace Bay.
3. Splash around in Grace Bay Beach
Grace Bay Beach has been named one of the top 10 beach destinations in the world several times now, and it is indeed a beautiful beach. It’s on the Leeward side of island, meaning there’s less wind, smaller waves and a gentler surf – perfect for younger swimmers.
4. Take a ferry to a neighboring island
A new ferry service links Provo with South Caicos (host of TCI’s famous annual May regatta).
Check out the new Sailrock project, explore the history on that island, and make the return trip to South Caicos by ferry in one day.
5. Explore Chalk Sound
Head out to Chalk Sound and spend some time at Taylor Beach. It’s great for birdwatching, beachcombing and shell collecting – the perfect way to spend time with kids.
