Come Enjoy Paradise
The myriad of activities to enjoy on Providenciales are all within reach of the Banyan Inn. At the outset, our guests can avail themselves of the on-site concierge service. By “on-site concierge service,” we mean the proprietors, Amy and Randy, who live on the property. Amy and Randy have been residents of Providenciales for several years, and can provide local advice on activities, restaurants, beaches, and excursions. Amy is the expert in all things beach and shopping related; while Randy’s expertise lies in local happy hour specials around the island.
The Banyan Inn offers our guests several on-premises activities. Guests can spend the day lounging at our 50,000 gallon swimming pool and pool deck area. Our pool offers areas for swimming as well as shallow areas to enjoy a refreshing cocktail. The Inn also offers our guests complimentary kayaks which guests can use to explore nearby Cooper Jack Bay or the inland canals on the island. Finally, we have complimentary snorkel gear for our guests to enjoy the free snorkeling areas on Providenciales, including Smith’s reef and Coral Gardens.
At our location in South Side Marina, there are four diving and snorkeling operators within walking distance from the Inn. These excursions provide daily dive and snorkeling trips to our beautiful reef system, with trips to West Caicos, Northwest Point, and French Cay. We can provide an on-the-go breakfast for guests leaving on these day trips, and the Inn provides a relaxing post-dive location to compare notes on the many sights our turquoise waters have to offer.
A short walk up the driveway brings our guests to Bob’s Bar. Bob’s is a beloved local bar and restaurant which serves dinner from 5-10 p.m. While it began as a local bar, Bob’s now provides a fantastic mix of locals, sailors, ex-pats, and tourists, who gather to while away the evening over a gorgeous view of the South Side Marina. Bob’s features live music on Wednesday nights, and karaoke on Saturday nights.
For guests who wish to explore Providenciales, we are centrally located on the island and guests can take a short 10-minute drive to world-renowned Grace Bay Beach, a 15-minute drive to Chalk Sound National Park, or a 10-minute drive to windy Long Bay Beach, the site of several kite boarding and wind surfing operators. In addition, we are a short drive from most of the island’s best restaurants, whether they be in Grace Bay, Turtle Cove, or Blue Hills.
