Providenciales, or Provo as it's popularly known, is the most developed of the islands in the group. It lies on the western end of the Turks and Caicos; only West Caicos lies beyond its most westerly Bonefish Point. Providenciales is where most of the tourists come, which means it has hotels. And it’s the only island with an airport capable of handling wide-bodied jets.

Providenciales is basically a peaceful little island some 15 miles long by about eight miles at its widest point. It’s a land of gently undulating hills where the sea grapes and casuarinas grow. Roads and trails – some paved, some not – meander all over the island.
