Get to know Chalk Sound

Chalk Sound is the name given to both the spectacular, landlocked blue lagoon here, and its surrounding residential area. The lagoon part of Chalk Sound is part of a protected national park, so no powerboats are allowed in the water, nor are there any large resorts on land. As a result, Chalk Sound is one of the most tranquil and beautiful places to live on Provo. The lagoon is unusually clear, free of algae, and with warm, shallow waters. If you navigate around the lagoon on a stand-up paddleboard or a kayak, you’ll be able to see all the way to the bottom, as well the vibrant marine life swimming in the waters. Almost all the villas here are lucky to have a gorgeous view—whether it’s over the lagoon and its tiny islands or facing south over the Caicos Banks.

Living in Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos, an archipelago of 40 islands in the Atlantic Ocean, is one of the most beautiful and tranquil places on Earth. For a long time, Turks and Caicos had almost no tourism, depending mainly on the salt industry to sustain the economy. In the 1960s, a few American developers came, building an airstrip, marina, and hotel on Providenciales, but the number of tourists remained small. But when Club Med opened a resort at Grace Bay in the 1980s, Turks and Caicos began its boom as an international tourist destination. Today, only nine of the islands are inhabited, with most residences, hotels, and restaurants located on Providenciales, informally nicknamed Provo. Cruise ships generally dock at the island of Grand Turk, home to the capital of Cockburn Town. The other seven inhabited islands and cays are wilder and significantly less populated, serving as home to exclusive and secluded resorts and villas.
