You could spend all your days sunning on Grace Bay Beach, but there’s plenty else to do if you’re the more active type. Provo Ponies leads a fantastic tour that includes swimming in the ocean with horses. Head to Long Bay Beach to do watersports or visit a shipwreck, or go to the world’s only conch farm for a tour. If you’d like to explore some of the other islands, book a tour with Silver Deep, which will give you a fuller scope of what the Turks and Caicos look like beyond Providenciales. And for a sense of the islands’ history, visit the Cheshire Hall Plantation. The tour is an eye-opening look at the role of Turks slaves in American and British history.
