Where to stay: Beaches Resorts by Sandals.
- Take in a breathtaking sunset at Grace Bay
Although Turks & Caicos has other picture-perfect beaches, the one at Grace Bay will enchant you with its spotless white sands, azure waters, and stunning sunsets. Don’t forget to go in the evening so you can experience the nightlife, enjoy some delightful seafood dishes, and be amazed at the sunset!
- Visit Salt Cay and go whale watching
Make sure to visit Salt Cay Island if you’re visiting Turks and Caicos between January and April when the weather is warm and blessed with cool breezes. There, you can try whale watching, where you have a 75% chance of seeing humpback whales as it swims through the Caribbean Sea.
- Kiteboard at Long Bay Beach
A far more heart-pounding activity, kiteboarding, is available at Long Bay Beach, which is direct across from Grace Bay. You can take lessons from instructors and rent the equipment needed while you are here, so you don’t need to be an expert to do this.
- Go snorkeling at Bright Reef
Bight Reef is a great place for snorkeling and is situated just offshore of Grace Bay. With hawksbill turtles, parrotfish, stingrays, trumpet fish, and barracudas all nearby, you have a good chance to go swimming with them. But don’t touch the coral reefs or the fish while you’re there.
- Visit the Lighthouse at Grand Turk
The white-washed lighthouse on Grand Turk, which was built in 1852, is the island’s most recognizable landmark. Although the building has been locked up, visitors can roam the grounds and take in some breathtaking views of the ocean when strolling along the clifftops.
- Go golfing at Provo Golf Club
This opulent 18-hole championship golf course is situated on Providenciales, and according to USA Today readers, it was twice named among the Top 5 Best Caribbean Golf Courses.
- Visit the Turks and Caicos National Museum
The building, also known as Guinep House, is a work of exquisite architecture. It includes the iconic Molasses Reef Wreck, the oldest shipwreck in the entire Americas, and its reconstructed archaeological remains.
- Tour the Caicos Conch Farm
Caicos Conch Farm is the only conch farm in the world and is located in Providenciales. Conch shells of all sizes and shapes can be found there, beautiful and unusual ones along with the hatchery and the algae vats that provide food for snails that live inside the conch. It was impacted by Hurricane Maria in 2017, and you can still see the damages made by it.
