Providenciales in One Day
If you are en route to one of the family islands, or have booked a stay along Grace Bay and not imagined to venture off the resort, perhaps you should consider renting a car to explore Provo for just a day. Starting at the far eastern end of the island, you can visit Provo’s Conch Farm, the only one in the world. While you're there, you’ll be able to say hello to a couple of resident conchs. If you are not staying on the island, be sure to take a quick detour through Grace Bay, checking out the beach for future visits and perhaps a couple of the shops. Coming down the island, history buffs might stop at Cheshire Hall. Here are the remnants of an old plantation within walking distance off Leeward Highway. From there, carry on to Chalk Sound; it is definitely an island must-see. The water here is shallow and bright with small islands dotted throughout the middle; the sight truly takes your breath away. While you are out there, be sure to stop at Las Brisas at Neptune Villas. The location offers stunning views of the sound, and it’s a perfect spot for lunch and a refreshment. If you are willing and able, you can take one of their rental kayaks for an hour—or longer. But if you are looking for a beach by this time, then Sapodilla and Taylor bays are just a little way beyond; the waters are shallow for hundreds of feet, making them a child's dream. Backtrack to downtown and take a ride to Malcolm's Beach out at Northwest Point, and then finish your day off in Blue Hills, where colorful buildings are the setting for a game of "slamming" dominos and a few local restaurants serve up wonderful Caribbean cuisine, all on the beach with unobstructed views of the sun as it sets.
