Shopping on Providenciales

In the past, Turks and Caicos has not necessarily been known as a top shopping destination, but as tourism here has grown, so have the shopping opportunities. Providenciales in particular has always been the go-to shopping destination in the island chain, and it only continues to be a highly sought after destination among visitors looking to claim their share of duty free goods and locally made souvenirs. 

There are four centers of shopping on Providenciales.  The Regent Village, Saltmills Plaza, Ports of Call, and Caicos Cafe Plaza.  Throughout these spots you'll be able to stock up on clothing and accessories, rum produced on the island, local arts and crafts, beachwear, jewelry, Cuban and Dominican cigars, and more. International chains are rare.  

Gifts and Souvenirs

If you enjoy shopping for souvenirs you should consider visiting Mama's Gift Shop, which is situated in Grace Bay, Providenciales. Since 1995, Mama's Gift Shop has been one of the most popular spots to pick up souvenirs in Turks and Caicos. Run by Mama and her sister's, you'll get a nice dose of island hospitality when you stop in to shop -- and one of the sisters may even braid your hair. Guests will find them on Grace Bay Road.

Another option is Turquoise Duty Free Shops, which is located 6.2 mi. (10.0 km) to the west of Mama's Gift Shop. U.S. residents are allowed to return home from Turks and Caicos with two liters of liquor, and with its location right in the air port, Turquoise will make sure that happens. They're located on Leeward Highway.
