Provo is known for the extensive range of fine dining establishments located on the island, but most tourists enjoy at least one casual night with a good pizza and a "cold one." Here are some of our favourite spots for a good pizza. In Turtle Cove, the waterfront restaurant Il Buco serves a terrific thin crust pizza. In Grace Bay, try Pizza Pizza (no, not the Canadian franchise) or the newly opened Hey Jose, just a short walk from the Gourmet IGA. And speaking of the IGA, they offer a great take-out pizza there too! There is a wood fire pizza oven at the grocery store, and a large, freshly made pizza with 3-4 toppings costs about $20.

There are some great spas in Turks and Caicos, and a few of them definitely top our favourites list! Spa Sanay, located at Alexandra Resort, offers great treatments at affordable prices. Spa facilities are quite basic and the spa itself is small, but if you are looking for a great massage or a precision pedicure, go to Spa Sanay. Next door at the Regent Palms, there is a very lavish spa that has consistently been ranked as one of the top spas in the Caribbean. When it's time to indulge, go to the spa at the Regent Palms. If you need relief from overdoing it on the golf course or kiteboarding, one of the best massage therapists on the island is Mercy. She works at Maxime's Hair Salon, which is located in Petite Place in Grace Bay. Mercy is very popular, so be sure to call ahead to avoid disappointment.

Grace Bay is so beautiful, it's hard to pull yourself away, but if you are ready to explore some other scenic parts of the island, head to Chalk Sound. This stunning area is home to many lovely residences, and a beach called Sapodilla Bay. Here you can enjoy calm, shallow, crystal clear water and wade 'way out" to search for starfish or other marine life. Kids just love this beach. And when you have had enough of sun and sand, head over to Las Brisas Restaurant for lunch on the patio. Las Brisas offers an extensive menu, exceptionally clean facilities and attentive service. We love going there for Sunday Brunch. This family owned and operated restaurant also offers non motorized boat rentals. They also feature a terrific two hour boat cruise on Chalk Sound. Highlights include snorkelling and viewing a sunken airplane, and visiting a small island to feed the iguanas. The day we were there, we fed the iguanas watermelon. It makes for a great day in the lovely Chalk Sound area.
