TAYLOR BAY BEACH
Calm, shallow, and child-safe, Taylor Bay is one of Turks and Caicos’ most treasured beaches, always ranked in the TOP 5 THINGS TO DO IN PROVIDENCIALES on Tripadvisor. Not surprisingly, in 2016 it won the Travelers’ Choice award.
LITTLE WATER CAY
It’s about a 15 minute boat ride from Leeward Marina. Often, searching for sand dollars is also part of the tour. Great for kids and adults alike. Unfortunately, these harmless animals are classified as endangered. Total trip (if visiting the island only) is about 2 – 3 hours round trip.
Sapodilla Rock Carvings
Hundreds of years ago, sailors shipwrecked on Providenciales etched their names, dates, and drawings in stones on Sapodilla Hill, located about a 4 minute drive from Sunset Point Villa. It’s just a short walk up the hill to see these historic carvings.
Be sure and bring your camera because once you’re at the top of Sapodilla Hill, you’ll also be rewarded with a stunning scenic view of the southern shores of Turks and Caicos! To get to the Sapodilla Rock Carvings, there are no signs, so finding the trail can be an adventure in itself!
CAICOS CONCH FARM
Near the Leeward area of Providenciales resides one of only two conch farms in the world (the other is located in Key West, Florida). Conch (pronounced “conk”) meat is a staple in the Caribbean and is now enjoyed in many different forms around the world. You’ll see mollusks raised from egg to adult, and learn how the conch farm is helping to protect the Caribbean queen conch from extinction. Open daily from 9am – 5 pm.
The stunning turquoise water of Chalk Sound is something not to be missed. Grab a cocktail at Las Brisas Restaurant, then take a pontoon ride or rent a kayak!
The food is consistently very good with great variety, so there should be something on the menu for everyone. It’s in the top ten of Tripadvisor readers’ favorite Providenciales restaurants. Several nights of the week they have set menus at reasonable prices. At Turtle Cove Marina.
Romantic outside dining in a wonderful tropical setting under coconut palms and twinkling lights. Prices moderate to expensive, but worth it for the food and the setting. Many would say this is their #1 restaurant on the island. Don’t wait until you get there, book well in advance… this is a popular place!
This is the kind of beach bar/restaurant located right on the sand that really makes you feel like you’re on vacation. If you have time, hit Bugaloo’s one day for lunch and Da Conch Shack another for… you guessed it… some amazing conch (a staple dish on the island).
Located off the beaten path in Five Cays, away from other restaurants or shopping, but only about a 15 minute drive from the villa.
Chinson Grill Shack
Looking for great island cooking? This is the real deal. Friday and Saturday nights only, go for the barbeque dinner… jerk chicken, pork, and fish… spicy and delicious. Try the ginger beer and mannish water.
The owner and staff couldn’t be friendlier and the prices couldn’t be more reasonable. Don’t expect anything fancy, but you can expect to have fun and enjoy some of the best jerk on the island!
Even if this popular restaurant weren’t conveniently located only 1/2 mile from Sunset Point Villa, we’d still recommend it highly for the food and setting!
On beautiful Chalk Sound in the Neptune Villas Resort, Las Brisas is a warm, relaxing restaurant for meals or cocktails. Great poolside bar, neat waterside gazebo for dining, and reasonable prices. Try the black bean soup and paella!
Located right on the beach and right next to Da Conch Shack in Blue Hills. This used to be Horse Eyed Jack’s and was always overshadowed by Conch Shack next door. But we’ve had great food and great cocktails here, and apparently we’re not the only ones. From the Tripadvisor reviews, it appears that Kalooki’s is giving their neighbor a real run for their money!
Da Conch Shack
Da Conch Shack has some of the best conch on the island (along with BUGALOO’s in Five Cays). Very informal and right on the ocean in Blue Hills, Da Conch Shack made the list in 1,000 Places To See Before You Die (Page 1111)!
Go on a night when there’s live music and dancing on the sand. Nice selection of rums at the rum bar.
Nothing fancy, just inexpensive and great Turkish & Greek food! Not much on atmosphere and it’s not on the ocean, but the meal we had when we were there was delicious! We recommend the Iskender Kabab, a mix of lamb and beef served over pita bread. Located on Grace Bay Rd, just off of Leeward Highway. Cash only.
A relaxing beach cafe/lounge serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with a Tex-Mex Theme. From the second floor guest enjoy a 180 degree view of the crystal blue water and white sand beaches. Live entertainment, good food, and beverages in a “one of a kind” location. Located at the Coral Gardens Resort.
