Very compact and the capital of Turks and Caicos. The island and particularly Providenciales is very small and compact. The city though small is clean but you won't want to stay here of you go to the island. The outlying hotels have some of the best beaches in the world. If you choose to go shopping then that would be a reason to come here.Recommended for:

Providenciales is the main tourist island of Turks and Caicos, not the capital. That island, Grand Turk, which houses the cruise ship port, is about 50 miles east. Beautiful beaches, great snorkeling. Food is expensive as it is mostly brought in from Miami. Not a lot of good duty free shopping. Go to the Bahamas for that. Come here for quiet relaxation.

Beautiful island, the water is completely turquoise and transparent. White sandy beaches. I came here for a stay at the Club Med, great decision. Been here 3x already and have my 4th one already booked. Easily the most fun place on the island for sports and nightlife.
