Providenciales, Turks & Caicos pictures taken May 2007. These pictures cover the three times I was bicycling on this island. Includes 18 panoramas.


1 Grace Beach from Long Point Grace Beach from Long Point. This is from the point behind Turtle Cove. All of the hotels are in the far distance. This beach is in a park and is an example of an ungroomed beach.

2 Grace Beach from in front of Coral Gardens Grace Beach from in front of Coral Gardens. Looking west. The sign along the left says this is to be the site of the future Toscana.

3 Grace Beach in front of Coral Gardens Grace Beach in front of Coral Gardens. Looking east.

4 The umbrellas in front of Coral Gardens The umbrellas in front of Coral Gardens. But they don’t make this beach a Top 10 beach. On a Top 10 beach the shade is provided by a grove of palm trees.

14 When you come across a house like this in the Caribbean When you come across a house like this in the Caribbean, it means that the family only had enough money to build one story. Later, when they have more, they can add the second. This is along Blue Hills Road.

15 In the distance you can see The Canterbury In the distance you can see The Canterbury, which is way out towards Northwest Point. A point of interest is this place used to be called the Northwest Point Resort, but I guess that gave away its out-of-the-wayness. When they were built 10 years ago they were Crystal Cove.
