Decorated with a series of small cays, blessed with pristine white sand and bordered by water the color of gemstones in shades of blue and turquoise,
Chalk Sound Beach is a complete escape to tranquility and beauty.
Certainly this is an ideal sport for swimming and sunning, but the stark beauty of the place is almost too inspiring to do much but meditate near the shoreline, listen deeply
to the soft lapping of the waves and the sound of the breeze as it dusts trees and propels birds on their way.
Nearby, there is more of an active life, with things to see and do. At Sapodilla Bay, Copper Jack, Discovery Bay, Turtle Tail and Long Bay there are numerous private villas for
rent; use this as your luxury base for exploring Provo. Spend part of a day watching the bustling harbor in action at South Dock, near Sapodilla Bay; itís fun and educational to
watch the boats and ships pass by, some under sail and others with their great engines moving them to other ports of call around the world.
Provo gets 350 days of sunshine a year, so your Chalk Sound Beach vacation is predictable, virtually guaranteed great weather. Itís a safe place with low crime and its 30,000
permanent residents tend to be British and Canadian, if not native.
Provo is the westernmost and most developed of the islands, but Chalk Sound Beach is its secret beach; this is pure Zen on the sand.
