The climate of the islands is classified as marine tropical, providing relatively consistent temperatures throughout the year.

Providenciales or Provo is the most developed island in the Turks and Caicos islands, providing a number of services and facilities. With crystal, clear waters and white-powdered beaches, this location is definitely a world class watersport destination.

Grace Bay beach is one of the best beaches in the world. The spot accommodates a wide range of activities and sports, including windsurfing, parasailing and kiteboarding. The last one is becoming increasingly popular the past few years. It is a great kiteboarding site, especially when the north and northeast winds are blowing.
