Turks and Caicos is truly a magical place. It’s a relaxing place to forget about the rest of the world and find peace.
When I took a trip there, I remember something a local told my family and I, “There are two speeds here: slow and stop.” There are some incredible things to do in Turks and Caicos and here’s a list of some that you should insist on!
1. Enjoy Grace Bay
Grace Bay is one of the most stunning sights in Providenciales. The water is clear, bright blue and stretches for miles. The sand is the softest I’ve ever felt! It’s quiet and peaceful, perfect for a beach vacation. It’s also next to numerous delightful restaurants and resorts. Some suites are right beside the ocean, making for a quick walk right up to the shores.
2. Thursday Fish Fry
Every Thursday, there’s a fish fry in Bight Children’s Park. Tons of locals come and enjoy this area’s fresh seafood. The atmosphere is fun and inviting, the music is lively and the food is some of the best in Turks and Caicos. If you love seafood, definitely check it out.
Turks and Caico’s ocean life is breathtaking. Many travelers start at Grace Bay Beach, then heading out into the reefs. There’s a wide array of tours to guide, including: Island Vibes Tours. Even simply hanging on the boat is a fun experience in Providenciales, every crew member is welcoming and friendly.
4. Walk or Hike the Beach Shores
Turks and Caicos is the best place for beaches. There’s Grace Bay, Half Moon Bay, Bonefish Point, Long Bay Beach, and many more. Each is unique and stunning. I wanted to soak up the scenery as much as possible on my trip and these are some of the most beautiful places to do so. Some are peaceful and serene, and others are great for swims in the sea or water sports like kiteboarding.
5. Whale Watching and Exploring
If you’re feeling adventurous, there are whale watching tours, bringing you past many beaches, for example Grace Bay and Iguana Island. There’s a chance to see marine life and even a shipwreck. This is something for anyone who has an active and curious side. The best time to view humpback whales is between December and April, during this period, the whales migrate from North Atlantic’s cold waters to the warmer Caribbean waters. Meanwhile, whales also search for female whales for mating during winter and spring.
