Provo Ponies is a trail riding stable located on the southeast end of Providenciales. We ride our horses on back roads, bush trails, and the remote beach of Long Bay hills. The shallow waters of the Caicos Banks are ideal for taking your horse in the crystal turquoise sea. We take all riding experience levels ages 7 and up. We pride ourselves in the love, attention and care we give our horses. In turn they help us give our riders a unique, safe and memorable ride. Private or group rides available. Maximum 12 of riders per group. Reservations are required.

Found off the south coast of Providenciales near Chalk Sound, Sapodilla Bay is a 900 foot (275 meter) long stretch of sheltered beach. The water here is very shallow, calm and clear, and is an excellent choice for families and those visiting with small children.This beach is a 10 mile (16km) drive from the central tourism region and resorts of Grace Bay.Sapodilla Bay offers an interesting setting. There are luxury vacation villason the beach and surrounding coastal cliffs, private yachts anchor in the bay, and the nearby Chalk Sound area is beautiful.The ocean water temp in the Turks and Caicos is always great, yet the sheltered coast of Sapodilla Bay and Taylor Bay tend to have even warmer water due to localised heating by the sun.The world-famous Grace Bay Beach of course sees far more guests, however, Sapodilla Bay can feel a little more crowded on busy days due to the limited extent of the beach.
