Curator’s statement

We came to Providenciales to dive and spend our holiday in a unique way. The diving was amazing with turtles, sharks, eels and rays on every dive. The weather was perfectly breezy and warm. Everyone we met was super friendly and helpful and the food was always fresh from the sea. I highly recommend a dayboat/catamaran excursion to see some of the pristine beaches that are otherwise unreachable!

Things to do in Turks and Caicos

Outside of the amazing resort amenities, the ocean is the ultimate playground. Right off of the shore you can snorkel, dive, jet ski, kite surf and (my favorite) go for a sailboat charter.
The charters take you to uninhabited islands with the whitest sand. One island had a harem of iguanas that could care less for people. We also followed a lone dolphin hoping for a handout or a good wake. Plus, they feed you lunch and strong drinks.

For another activity, I can't speak highly enough about AquaTCI for diving. They were a class act. There was a professional dive master on every dive with our family of four. Turks and Caicos is a very exciting destination when it comes to diving - you never know what you will get. Case in point? On our way to a dive site, there was a radio call that a whale was spotted in the area!

Places to eat & drink in Turks and Caicos

  • Mango Reef: The place to be in the Bight area. The food is great, the service is amazing and it seems to be the hub to meet up.

  • Bay Bistro: Delicious dining on the beach with amazing fresh lobster. Most romantic and relaxing restaurant on the island. Make reservations.

  • Coco Bistro: Lush secluded restaurant located off the beach. Make reservations.

  • Da Conch Shack: A must-visit for everything conch and West Indies.

  • Omar's Beach Hut: Fresh seafood fair on the quiet side of the island. Good food, a nice owner and very breezy.
