Idyllic experiences for beach lovers and adventurers

There is no typical day in Turks and Caicos. It’s perfectly acceptable to watch the hours slip away while lounging on a secluded private beach, basking in the warm sun, toes deeply tucked in soft white sand. You may, however, want to spend an afternoon sailing, sightseeing or exploring the island's numerous local nature preserves and tranquil beaches. Thrill-seekers should definitely try kite boarding, or just kayak and paddle to Iguana Cay or along the south side mangroves.

Excursions

Fishing

Sport fishing is more than a pastime in Providenciales – several international tournaments take place every year, including a major deep-sea bill fishing event and smaller bottom fishing contests. Reef and bottom fishing are great entry points into the sport, with minimal experience required. Deep-sea sport and bone fishing often require more experience or a guide to accompany you for the day which Beach Enclave are happy to arrangeA fishing license is also required by law within the islands which can be obtained by the fishing company organizing your charter. 

Snorkeling

All it takes is a mask and snorkel to immerse yourself—literally and figuratively—into the intriguing underwater world off the Turks and Caicos coast. A great fair-weather activity for families, snorkeling brings you right to the reef action, for views of colorful fish and coral. Beach Enclave North Shore has beautiful, unspoiled coral right in the heart of the Princess Alexandra National Park, just a short swim away.  

Diving

For scuba divers, there are two reasons the Turks and Caicos is an ideal destination: the world's third largest barrier reef is just offshore and there are excellent sheer walls to explore. Most dive sites are part of protected nature reserves and national parks, allowing marine life to flourish within the sanctuary of the nature reserve. Off Providenciales, some of the best dive sites include French Cay, West Caicos and Northwest Point. 

Other Watersports

The consistent east-southeast trade winds on Providenciales make it an ideal location for kite-surfing, one of the island's most popular watersports. The expanses of flat, clear and shallow water allow the wind to carry you along the surface for long, exhilarating stretches. The same conditions also enhance your stand up paddle boarding (SUP) experience. Jet skiing, kayaking, parasailing, surfing, windsurfing, tubing, wakeboarding, water skiing and windsurfing are also popular.

Beaches

You may never want to leave the picture perfect beach belonging to your villa, but if you’re in the mood for exploration, the island of Provo offers other idyllic expanses of silky, sandy shoreline.

Superlative Grace Bay Beach, home to Beach Enclave Grace Bay, has put Turks and Caicos on the map, justifiably earning multiple “Best Beach in the World” Award from TripAdvisor and Travelers’ Choice.
