Providenciales, or Provo as it’s locally and universally known, is the commercial and touristic capital of Turks and Caicos. By far the busiest and most populated of the islands, it’s home to the country's major international airport and some relatively rampant development, from stunning all-inclusive resorts to rows of condos and the concrete shells of ill-considered ventures that never got off the ground. Its greatest attractions are miles of beautiful white-sand beaches, and the halo of reef that blooms in every direction. With that nature comes opportunities for diving, sailing, kitesurfing or just bumming on the beach.
