SPA TROPIQUE’S MOBILE MASSAGES SPANNING DEEP TISSUE, SWEDISH AND AROMATHERAPY Be sure to pick out some local souvenirs to appease the people you didn’t bring with you to our beautiful islands. Most likely, they’ve been shoveling snow out of your driveway every bloody day you’ve been away. It’s probably best to err on the side of generosity. The main shopping areas on Providenciales are, Caicos Café Plaza, The Saltmills, Ports of Call, The Regent Village, and Le Vele Plaza. All that shopping will render you in need of some fuel. At least the liquid variety. Turks Head Brewery produces the country’s native beer. (And yes, it’s equipped with a tasting room!) Beer tast-ings and brewery tours are available weekdays, three times daily. For the history buffs, be sure to check out Providenciales National Museum – quaint, and cen-trally located in The Village at Grace Bay. Then there’s the Caicos Heritage House, which is right next door to the museum. The architecture depicts a typical Caicos dwelling, aimed at shed-ding light on the very roots that have grounded today’s island culture. Cheshire Hall Loyalist Plantation is also a must-see. The ruins of this 18th century plantation are well maintained by the National Trust, with landscaped paths. The site is open Monday to Friday, with guided tours avail-able. The carvings located on Sapodilla Hill are pretty fascinating too. You’ll find messages dating back to the 1650s, from shipwrecked sailors to cen-turies of travellers. The Turks and Caicos National Museum on Grand Turk is rebuilding. Visit www.tcmuseum.org to find out how to help. And nature lovers, we’ll never forget about you. The TCI is “beautiful by nature” after all. We’ve got herons, hummingbirds, pelicans, bananaquits – the bird watching here is fantastic. Head to Northwest Point National Park for coastal birdwatching, West Harbour Bluff for white tailed tropicbirds, and Frenchmen’s Creek coastline for birds from egrets to ospreys. And there’s the formidable Iguana Island. Officially known as Little Water Cay, Iguana Island lies just 400 metres from Providenciales, and is a prime SHOP FOR SOUVENIRS AT ART PROVO IN THE REGENT VILLAGE JET SKI ‘SEAFARI’ PACKAGES BY CARIBBEAN CRUISIN’ 54 • • • • • NOV/DEC/JAN/FEB 2017/2018 “Where When How -Turks & Caicos Islands” SPA TROPIQUE PHOTO BY HUMMINGBIRD LUXURY, THE PEARLS OF LONG BAY AND PROVO PICTURES
