Top Things to Do in Turks and Caicos

Explore the beautiful treasures of the Turks and Caicos Islands; with an abundance of wildlife, colorful marine life, and pristine turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. Finding the perfect activity for kids, adults, families or groups in Providenciales can be daunting- here’s the top things to do!

Immerse yourself in the underwater world of the Turks and Caicos

The Turks and Caicos Islands has the third largest barrier reef in the world which makes it a great location for a guided snorkeling tour or a full day cruise adventuring Providenciales’ surrounding Cays. No matter the time of year, snorkeling is one of the top things to do in the Turks and Caicos

  • Book our half day boat charter and visit the leeward reef, home to turtles and spotted eagle rays.
  • Book our full day boat excursion and cruise to Iguana Island and Half-Moon Bay (also known as Half-Moon Cay) to see local rock iguanas, and if you’re lucky enough, you might get the chance to swim with dolphins or meet JoJo the Dolphin!
  • Visit Smiths Reef and experience snorkeling straight off Grace Bay beach.
  • Coral Gardens is a great kid-friendly spot for first time snorkelers, allowing you to walk in right off the beach!

Taste the Local Flavors of the Turks and Caicos

No matter where you go, visiting local restaurants and trying new food is always a great way to experience culture and create long-lasting memories with your friends and family. Turks and Caicos restaurants are abundant, but if you want to eat like the locals do, our top recommendations are:

  • Try the locally caught snapper with an ocean view at Omars Beach Hut.
  • Experience live music and conch fritters with your toes in the sand at Da Conch Shack.
  • Feel refreshed with an Instagram worthy acai bowl from Crest and Berry.
  • Join us for the perfect Beach Barbeque on Half Moon Bay, made by your Captain! Finish with a refreshing dip in the ocean after your meal.

Shopping

We know you wish you could stay in Turks & Caicos longer but by taking a piece of the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands home with you, your memories will last forever.

  • Grab your morning coffee at Lemon 2 Go then head next door to find Turks and Caicos apparel from Provo Clothing Company T-shirt designed with the popular Island potcake and homage to our other islands and areas like North and Middle Caicos, Grand Turk, Malcom’s Beach and more!
  • Find handmade Jewlery made with Grace Bay Beach sand from the Wellington Collection in Saltmills Plaza.
  • Head over to Wildflower Skin Care Labs in Caicos Plaza to find natural skincare products made with organic local extracts of the Turks and Caicos.
