Turks & Caicos

Guidebook: Introduction

Welcome To Turks & Caicos!

Blue skies, warm turquoise waters, glorious sunshine, gentle breezes and the most enviable amenity to be found on a tropical island – your own secluded beach.

Your Quintess Villas at Blue Mountain are part of a private, yet centrally located hillside luxury complex, offering uninterrupted views of Grace Bay and the protective barrier reef and the most spectacular sunsets on the island. All this is situated just a short drive from the airport, shopping and the challenging Provo Golf Club.

Providenciales, or Provo as it is affectionately known, is home to world class diving, golfing, sailing, snorkeling, water sports and plain relaxing. Provo is just 38 square miles and it boasts two unique coasts. The Islands are protected by a government dedicated to preserving the islands’ uncomplicated lifestyle and natural beauty.

There is so much to do in the Turks & Caicos Islands, the choices are endless, from helicopter tours of the islands to world class diving. The Turks & Caicos Islands are considered to be one of the top 10 Dive destinations in the world! Why not try a resort dive to discover the world that lies below the sea?

The famous ‘Jo-Jo’ the dolphin can often be seen in the Grace Bay area; he is particularly fond of boats and often visits divers on the reef. Humpback Whales are a big draw as they pass through the Islands on their annual migration from January through to March, they don’t stay for long but you can take a trip to see these wonderful creatures if you’re lucky…

There are many restaurants to choose from that cater to every palate, from five star gourmet gastro to local fare. Take a trip to the famous Conch Shack to relax under the palm trees, sip Rum Punch and taste the island’s favorite dish, Conch salad! Or relax in your Villa and let someone else worry about the cooking; hire a private Chef to prepare some of our local cuisine including conch and lobster in season as well as a full range of other amazing dishes.

Surrounded by the world’s third largest coral reef, The Turks & Caicos Islands have some of the finest powdery-sand beaches and the most amazing turquoise seas in the world! Grace Bay Beach, one of the world’s top beaches, stretches for 12 miles.
