The Providenciales region
The Turks and Caicos Islands are a small archipelago of 8 inhabited islands and numerous small cays just 575 miles south-east of Miami. Fringed by one of the longest barrier reefs in the world the Turks and Caicos islands are blessed with beaches of powder white sand and some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in the Caribbean.
The islands are arranged around the edges of two large limestone plateaus, the Turks Bank, with deep offshore waters that serve as major transit points for Humpback Whales, spotted Eagle rays, Manta Rays and Turtles. Anglers who are fishing for Tuna, Wahoo and Blue Marlin use these same rich waters. Bordering the edges of the islands are lines of coral reef and some of the most impressive walls of coral in the Caribbean.
Providenciales, or more commonly known as "Provo", covers an area of 38 miles and is the most developed island in Turks and Caicos. Surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches, Provo has been ranked "Best Beach" by Conde' Nast magazine and by the World Travel Awards for several years running.
Provo has a temperate climate and is comfortable all year round with temperatures in the mid 70s in winter and mid 80s in Summer. The absence of a cruise port and the islands low key night life maintain it's exclusivity and it's appeal to vacationers looking for a secluded and serene Caribbean destination.
Chalk Sound National Park
Towards the south of the island you will find Chalk Sound, a large stretch of striking turquoise water dotted with an array of tiny cays. Protected as a National Park the three mile long lagoon is a magical place to explore by kayak and just a short paddle away iguanas can be find on one of the small islands. The beautiful beaches of Sapodilla and Taylor bay are just a few minutes walk away.
A short walk from the house is Las Brisas, a great friendly bar and restaurant where jet skis can be hired or you can take a trip along the sound in their boat.
