The new year inspires renewed wanderlust, heightened by the latest hot-list destinations and a new wave of adventures on offer. As destinations trend and fade, the Caribbean has always been a popular choice for the luxury traveller – and it’s easy to see why. In Turks and Caicos, the gateway island of Providenciales, commonly known as Provo, is a truly intoxicating place. The laid-back way of life, natural charm and beauty make this island a highly desirable destination. Its popularity paired with the simple purchase process also make it a sound investment for those looking for a real estate opportunity this year.
Rather than a fleeting week on this unique island, homeownership can encourage relaxation on a deeper level and offer an idyllic home from home for time together, throughout the year. With a warm year-round climate and an annual average ocean water temperature range of 79° F to 85°, you will be able to enjoy the island lifestyle and the host of water sport activities to its fullest whenever you have the chance to get away.
The island of Provo is well-known for its cosmopolitan north shores, with Grace Bay drawing tourists and second homeowners. For those who search for the luxury of being close to the vibrancy of a popular town, but distant enough to be in a secluded haven of relaxed sophistication – the south side of the island could be the ideal destination.
Positioned on the shores of Long Bay beach and stunning Iron shore, South Bank is a destination for owners who seek adventure and relaxation in equal measure while enjoying the natural beauty of Turks and Caicos. Access to world-class amenities and management by Grace Bay Resorts make ownership at South Bank as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
