Things to Do in Turks and Caicos
Ease into the morning with a private beach yoga session—local studio GlowFit will send an instructor to your hotel. After, treat yourself to an al fresco breakfast of banana pancakes and lobster benedict at the boutique Sibonne Beach Hotel, overlooking Grace Bay Beach.
Next, explore the islands from the water on Caicos Dream Tours’ four-hour Snorkel and Conch cruise. The cruise kicks off along Grace Bay and takes you to Barrier Reef, the third largest reef in the world. (Besides all the gear you’ll need, the operator also supplies snacks and rum punch.)
Book a table at Coco Bistro for cocktails and conch ceviche under the stars, amid the largest coconut grove on the island.
After fueling up with a beachfront breakfast, make for Bight Reef, located in central Providenciales and home to clear water teeming with a rainbow of fish plus stingrays and sea turtles.
Take a kayaking eco-tour and stop at Little Water Cay, an uninhabited nature reserve island—it’s the best place to see endangered Rock Iguanas and other island wildlife.
Spend the late afternoon on Grace Bay beach, where besides swimming and sandcastle-building along the 12-mile stretch of powdery sand and calm, clear blue waters, you’ll find a bevy of watersports, including stand-up paddleboarding and parasailing.
Stop into Island Scoop, just minutes from Grace Bay beach, for a fresh fruit smoothie or ice cream sundae to cap off a perfect day.
Start your day with a guided ride on horseback with Provo Ponies, a stable on the island of Providenciales. The secluded Long Bay Beach is the backdrop for cantering through the clear blue water. (The company provides fanny packs for carrying cameras, you’ll want to capture this journey!)
Afterward, book a couples massage. Several spots on the island offer waterfront treatments, including the spa at the Shore Club. The resort’s Dune Spa is home to three oceanfront treatment bungalows, where the gentle waves make for a soothing soundtrack during your treatment.
If you’re seeking roaring nightlife, Turks and Caicos, with its luxe and laid-back vibe, is probably not the place for you. Instead, arrange for a private dinner on the beach, followed by a moonlit stroll.
