Horseback Riding#9 in Best Things To Do in Turks & Caicos
- 0.0Food Scene
If you're looking for a unique way to experience the white sand beaches of TCI, consider a scenic horseback ride. Suitable for beginners and seasoned equestrians, horseback riding is a popular activity for TCI visitors (past travelers raved about their experiences). One highly recommended company is Provo Ponies, which offers horseback riding excursions both on land and partially submerged in the sea.
Recent riders say the horses are friendly, warm and love heading into the water up to their belly level. Be sure to wear closed-toe water shoes that won't slip off in the waves. Other travelers recommend passing your camera to the helpful guides who will snap plenty of pictures.
At Provo Ponies, hour-long rides cost $110; the price increases to $130 for a 90-minute session. The company will also provide transportation to and from Grace Bay hotels for $10 per person. Monday through Friday, Provo Ponies offers two guided rides per day (at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.). During the winter months, the afternoon ride is at 3 p.m.

#1 Grace Bay (Provo)
Vacationers are almost always pleased with Grace Bay in Provo, raving about its soft sand and turquoise water, with some even dubbing it the "world's best beach." The beach's breathtaking surf and sand, plus its proximity to a golf course and plenty of shops and restaurants, leave most guests pleasantly satisfied.
Located in an eastern crook of Providenciales, Grace Bay touts more than 3 miles of soft ashen sand and open crystalline water to placate sunbathers. There's little shade, so come early in the morning to get your choice of umbrellas. Some of the island's most well-liked restaurants, such as Solana Teppanyaki and Sushi Bar, are sheltered along Grace's shore, as are the most popular hotels. What's more, they don't mind non-guests walking up to dine.
