Providenciales has been named one of the "The Best Caribbean Islands for Family Vacations" by Caribbean Journal:
"You won’t find any family member with a complaint about Turks and Caicos’ spectacular Grace Bay Beach, but Provo really stands out for its large condo-hotels, with some of the region’s most spacious rooms that give you all the comfort both you and your kids need," according to Caribbean Journal.
Providenciales is home to an amazing variety of restaurants. There are beach bars, open-air bistros, high-end eateries offering world cuisine, and even informal food-truck fare served from a retro trailer. Best of all, these restaurants are often within walking distance from our Turks and Caicos resort.
Southwest Airlines has announced they will offer direct flights from Fort Lauderdale to Providenciales International Airport (PLS) in Turks and Caicos starting November 5.
These flights will connect in Fort Lauderdale to and from cities in the eastern half of the United States such as Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa and Washington DC.
As well Southwest will be offering new direct flights from Nashville to Providenciales, with service expected to start in November, 2017.
Fares and flight schedules to Providenciales have yet to be announced, so stay tuned!
There is no more spectacular place in the world to plan your destination beach weddings than Grace Bay Beach (named the #1 Island In The World by TripAdvisor) on the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos. White sand and turquoise sea combine to create an unforgettable experience.
Our resort is located right on the beach, on the quiet, eastern end of Grace Bay. Just minutes from the airport, it's easy for your guests to get here, and guests enjoy an oceanfront view from their room.
We are proud and happy to know that our wonderful Grace Bay Beach is again selected by TripAdvisor as World's "Top 10 Beaches for 2017". Wonderful for the Tuscany and its guest.
As a Tripadvisor review says:
World Class BeachThe beach at Grace Bay was world class. The stunning turquoise water and clean beach was beyond my wildest dreams. If you are considering a Caribbean vacation then this beach should be your first choice.
Lindsey and Jonathan got hitched on a gorgeous beach in Turks & Caicos. An intimate ceremony was followed by an oceanside reception in the sand.
We are very pleased that our guests and on-line visitors can now see even more of our great boutique resort and its grounds, as well as the beach. We hope you will enjoy.
The tour has been prepared by Hector Enriquez, Altavista Communications Group and we are deeply appreciative for his work. The tour is made with GoogleMaps, like streetview.
The Tuscany is very honored to be the recipient of three 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards:
