Providenciales Water Sports & Beach Shopping

As a tropical island vacation destination, there’s a wide selection of shops on Providenciales offering everything you’ll need to enjoy our exquisite beaches and ocean.

Generally, you’ll be able to find most water sports and beach items at one of three locations on Providenciales: at a shopping plaza in the tourism district of Grace Bay, at Graceway Gourmet supermarket in Grace Bay, or at the Do It Best building center on Leeward Highway.

Purchasing Items May not be Necessary

Keep in mind that many accommodations, especially vacation rental villas, offer a wide range of amenities, which typically includes the complimentary guest use of beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, snorkeling gear, beach toys and floats, and kayaks and stand up paddle boards.

Contact your accommodation for information on what they may provide.

Buy at Home or in the Turks and Caicos?

Almost anything you’ll need can be found on Providenciales, yet it’s undeniable that the local prices will typically be much higher than what you’ll pay back home due to customs duties and import costs in the Turks and Caicos.

For low-value items such as inflatable beach toys, local prices will be about double the average cost in the United States, and with greater cost items such as high-quality dive and snorkel masks, the rate difference is typically a little less at 50%-80% more.

Another consideration is the luggage restrictions of airlines, which are becoming increasingly strict.

Snorkeling and Diving Equipment

We have extensive reefs and marine sights, and as such you’ll have no difficulty finding the perfect snorkel mask or fins for your underwater adventure.

For a proper fit, it’s essential that there’s a sufficient selection to choose from. Everyone’s different, and a poorly fitting mask will seriously detract from your snorkeling experience.

Higher-quality masks and equipment, and expert advice on fitment, is generally only found at the dedicated dive shops. Low-cost mask, snorkel and fin sets can be purchased at many gift shops and grocery stores.

With proper care and storage, a decent snorkel set will last years. If you’ll be making regular visits to a tropical destination, consider purchasing high quality equipment.
