North Caicos

North Caicos, TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands

Providenciales, home of Grace Bay Club is great, but there are 40 islands and islets to explore in the Turks and Caicos Islands making an interisland sojourn almost essential to any trip. Those who can pull themselves away from beautiful Grace Bay Beach should head to North Caicos. A quick ferry ride deposits you in front of a sign proclaiming: “Thank You For Visiting North Caicos and Middle Caicos.” You have joined the Beyond Provo Club. Smack in the middle of the 13-mile-long island is a roughly three-and-a-half mile long pond descriptively named Flamingo Pond. When I visited, there were over 100 flamingos, but their numbers can reach into the thousands certain times of year! The overlook is roughly 300 feet from the pond, so binoculars, a spotting scope, or a major telephoto lens is a requirement. Another must-stop is the one-of-a-kind Miss B’s restaurant. Sure, it serves local favorites like cracked conch, fried fish, and curried conch (the best curried conch I’ve ever had), but it’s the vibe at Miss B’s that really sets it apart. Come prepared to party, dance, joke, smile, sing, eat, and, of course, drink—all starting at the eye-opening hour of high noon! Then there are the spectacular beaches beyond on Middle Caicos: Conch Bar Beach, Bambarra Beach, and the remote sands of Cedar Point and Haulover Point. All in all, it’s a day trip that truly delivers an awe-inspiring, authentic experience…if you can pull yourself away from all that Grace Bay Club already offers.
