Providenciales Island, which is popularly known as Provo, is a world renowned diving destination that is growing in popularity for snorkeling. With the third largest barrier reef in the world, the 14 mile barrier reef stretches along most of the north shore that provides calm, clear waters.

There are also inter-island flights on Caicos Express Airways and interCaribbean to Nassau, Jamaica, Cuba and Puerto Rico.
