The results are in for TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards. We’re thrilled to announce that the island of Providenciales, Grace Bay Beach and the Venetian resort are all 2019 award winners, reinforcing the elements that make Turks and Caicos one of the very best vacation destinations in the world. Read on for details!
Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Awarded as One of the Top 10 Caribbean Destinations
Part of the North Atlantic Ocean’s Lucayan Archipelago, the British Overseas Territory of Turks and Caicos is made up of over 40 islands and Cays of which only 8 are inhabited. Providenciales is the third largest and the most inhabited island in Turks and Caicos, and is known as being one of the best vacation destinations in the world due to its food, resorts and white sandy beaches.
A few other elements that make Provo (as the locals call it) one of the best vacation destinations:
While there are several different languages spoken amongst Turks and Caicos residents, English is the official language, removing any potential language barriers for many North American visitors.
The tap water here is also safe to drink, and even though most people prefer the taste of chilled, bottled water, our safe tap water makes things easy for families that won’t have to worry about reminding little ones to avoid ingesting tap water.
The island is lined with the most perfect, powdery sand beaches, Grace Bay Beach being the most notable. We’re talking about beaches that you thought you’d only see in a postcard. Many of our beaches feature stretches of tranquil, waist to chest deep water that’s perfect for swimming, wading, stand up paddleboarding and kayaking.
Visitors who love fishing can rent an island charter such as Panoply to take them on a deep sea fishing, reef fishing or bonefishing adventure.
Home to the world’s third largest barrier reef as well as other small coral beds and underwater features to explore, makes Providenciales a world-class diving destination and one of the best vacation destinations for snorkelers of all levels.
You don’t have to choose between great beaches or great food, because we have both. You’ll find a variety of cuisines to suit your tastes and our flavourful Caribbean fare and fresh seafood will have you anticipating your return to Provo.
Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales Awarded as One of the Top 25 Beaches in The World and in the Caribbean
While every beach in Providenciales is beautiful, Grace Bay Beach is definitely the most notable. Located along the northshore of Provo, Grace Bay Beach is known for its pinkish-white, powderdy sand and clear, tranquil waters that are perfect for watersports, snorkeling and wading.
The waters of Grace Bay Beach and the smaller beaches that flank it are protected by a large barrier reef, resulting in especially calm and clear waters without breaks or riptides. Visitors enjoy wading and snorkeling in the long stretches of shallows, and the conditions are ideal for families with kids, and for trying out watersports such as stand up paddleboarding.
The Venetian on Grace Bay Awarded as One of the Top 25 Small Hotels and One of the Top 25 Hotels for Families in the Caribbean
Located on Grace Bay Beach, the Venetian boasts luxurious, condo-style suites paired with resort style amenities. Each one, two and three bedroom suite at the Venetian is oceanfront, with full-sized gourmet kitchens, laundry facilities and screened in porches that overlook Grace Bay Beach.
Visitors choose the Venetian for its quiet setting, spectacular views, privacy and home-like comforts. Our close proximity to beaches, shopping, dining and activities–and being steps away from one of the best beaches in the world, make the Venetian a popular choice for young families as well.
