guest post ~ inês

i was so excited to have my inês over, she’s actually much more than just my sister, she’s my friend, and also some kind of a daughter – we are 15 years apart!  surprisingly she is a great actress, ubber stylish and has an amazing blog (the pop up store), where she sells her fashion finds.
what do you think makes turks and caicos (providenciales) so special?
This might sound silly, but I think one of the things that makes Provo so special is the fact that there is always enough of everything for everyone! Let me explain: there’s always enough beach for everyone, it’s never crowded! There’s always another restaurant to try out! Always more sea to explore! Always more coral to find! Always more activities to do (parasailing, horse-back riding, going to the Conch Farm, seeing the glow-worms)! Always more seashells to pick! Always more hotels to visit! Always more island to explore! Always more of everything to do! There are so many different things to do, that your visit to Provo can be catered to your own taste. Your personal experience of Provo will ALWAYS be different from someone else’s visit!
But the fact that the beaches are NEVER crowded has to be what most impressed me!
what were your favorite things to do whilst on island?
Obviously diving! I got my PADI Open Water Diver license, and enjoyed every dive til the last breath! I went diving in Five Cays and French Cay;  next time I’m over I’ll have to visit all the other diving sites!
would you recommend to a friend?
I would (and do!) most definitely recommend Providenciales to a friend! However, I also recommend that you do your homework before coming! Your stay will be a lot more enjoyable if you know where the best beaches are, which are the best restaurants, what the best activities are, so you can make the best out of them!

chalk sound national park

my mum and sister are over for a visit (hence, my little blogging…) so i am showing them around and making sure they don’t miss out on anything on island. i made a list of every beach and spot they should see in provo and the chalk sound national park was one of the first ones we headed to when they arrived.

chalk sound is a shallow lagoon, almost 5km long, with hundreds of rocky islands – and the water is a chalky turquoise colour! there are no sandy beaches (or very little), but isn’t the colour of the water amazing?

we drove through chalk sound drive, saw the amazing houses on silly creek and stopped on the side roads to sneak in, see the views and take pictures.

note to self – i must go back, rent a kayak to explore the islands and end up with lunch at las brisas with the best view of the lagoon.
