Regardless of what you enjoy doing, you’ll be able to find an activity, tour or excursion in Turks and Caicos which matches your interests. Turks and Caicos is renowned for its spectacular beaches but, if lying in the sun isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty to do.
For a real taste of the islands, head to the Caicos Conch Farm to have a lesson on how this staple in the Turks and Caicos diet is reared. Your time at the conch farm will teach you all about the lifecycle of conch and you can even see and touch them in their nurseries!
Adventure seekers won’t be disappointed either, as taking a trip with Caicos Dream Tours will allow you to go beach cruising, snorkelling, and indulge in delicious barbecues.
Turks and Caicos accommodation leaves nothing to be desired, as some of the most popular hotels and resorts are situated right on the doorstep of Grace Bay Beach, which has been voted as the most beautiful beach in the world.
If you’re looking for luxury, look no further: Grace Bay Beach is home to the boutique all-inclusive resort Beach House TCI which features beach-side restaurants, an on-site gym, and a golf course only 10 minutes away.
If weekly film nights, watersports, beach volleyball and pampering pods take your fancy, Beach House may just be the accommodation that will make your time in Turks and Caicos all that more special.
Any culture vulture will delight in the treats that Turks and Caicos has to offer as it’s brimming with fascinating history.
The first attraction to visit has to be the Turks and Caicos National Museum which hosts exhibitions on everything from nature and the environment to the region’s history of slavery, so there really is something for everyone.
Next on the list should be Her Majesty’s Prison, which was built in the 1830s and acted as a fully-functioning prison until 1994. The prison was used to house mainly petty criminals who were detained for crimes such as drunkenness.
