Most of the hotels such as Villa del Mar or Alexandra Resort are great for couples and families. They take privacy into account, keeping a fair amount of space between each room.

Home to the island’s Turtle Cove Marina, Turtle Cove is a residential neighborhood with a rich history. This is where tourism originated for the island, even if Grace Bay has largely taken over as the most popular spot!

Here, you can find luxury shops, restaurants, and rentals like Beach Villa Paprika or Serenity House. This is a relatively more expensive place to stay, but there are a lot of exciting things to do here. Smith’s Reef is in this region, which is known as a great place for snorkeling. It’s easy to reach Smith’s Reef from Turtle Cove, while La Vista Azul is a hotel close by that is more affordable.

Turtle Cove has an important history in Providenciales, and remains a relaxing spot people enjoy to this day. It’s worth visiting if you love water activities or want to know more about the origin of tourism. If you are traveling with a large group, the accommodations will often suit you well.
