Providenciales International Airporta small airport, which can become overcrowded very easily. Prior to arriving you should schedule a shuttle or taxi to meet you promptly after your flight lands ($28). When departing from Provo's airport, be sure to arrive at the airport approximately three to four hours beforehand, especially on Saturdays. Saturday is the busiest day at the airport. American and Delta offer multiple non-stop flights. The lines will most likely be out the door. Located inside the airport is a place to purchase preservatives and souvenirs. Check in is divided into two lines. Line one is baggage check, while line two is the security check. Make sure you are in the correct line and do not hesitate to ask for help if you have never been to this airport before.
If you don't pre-arrange a taxi, you may have to pay as much as $33 for a car. Some drivers may try to scam you for more.

Taxis can get expensive if you are traveling from the heart of Grace Bay to areas surrounding the Turtle Cove Marina. The charge is approximately $6-8 per person. If you are staying along the strip of resorts (Seven Stars, Club Med Turkoise, Grace Bay Club, Point Grace, etc.) you are in great walking distance to a handful of restaurants, pubs, boutiques, and island entertainment (i.e. scuba diving, sailing, kiteboarding).
BeachesMore than half the coastline of Providenciales is beach, covered in soft sand. Some beaches have sharp shells. Keep well clear of the path of any boats, as reckless boat operators have killed travellers.
