If you are planning a trip to Turks and Caicos soon, or perhaps if you’d just like to head off on a Caribbean holiday but haven’t yet decided on a destination, you may be wondering what Turks and Caicos has to offer.

As you’ll discover, there is a great deal to see and do in the area, so we’ve put together this quick list of five of the best things that you can do if you visit Turks and Caicos!

Enjoy some great food

The Caribbean is as famous for its delicious food as it is for the beautiful weather and friendly locals, so it goes without saying that you need to try some of the local cuisine if you visit Turks and Caicos.

One of the best options available to you is Kitchen 218, which serves up beautifully presented dishes such as Lionfish Ceviche which make the most of the local seafood of the area. It is a true fine dining experience, and you can even dine out in the open air on the terrace.

Visit a conch farm

If you’d like to know a little more about the food you’re likely to come across on the islands, Providenciales is home to the world’s first commercial Conch farm, and it’s open to visitors if you would like to experience for yourself the life cycle of the Caribbean Queen Conch.

Visit one of the best beaches in the world

Resorts on Grace Bay Beach, Providenciales

Grace Bay Beach was voted the best beach in the world in the Trip Advisor Traveller’s Choice Awards in 2016 and hasn’t strayed too far from the top spot since.

And it isn’t hard to see why so many people voted it as the best beach they had ever visited. The perfectly powdery white sands and the clear, warm water lapping at sands make the perfect setting for relaxation, and the blue skies during the day and stunning sunsets of an evening make for quite the visual spectacle.

Visit Little Water Cay

If you love wildlife, then a trip to Little Water Cay is a must. Also known as Iguana Island, this small island is a nature reserve and home to last of the Rock Iguanas that once covered most of the Turks and Caicos islands.

Only a short boat trip from Providenciales, Little Water Cay is easily accessible. Once you arrive on the island you can enjoy a guided tour, which you will need to buy tickets for from the visitor’s centre.

Get married

Okay so this one is a little bit of a jump up from some of the other things we’ve listed so far, but if you’re somebody who has always dreamed of having a Caribbean wedding, then Turks and Caicos could be the perfect destination for you.

Venues such as Blue Haven have a wealth of experience when it comes to putting on the perfect intimate and tranquil weddings right on the beach, amongst the swaying palm trees. What could be more perfect?

We hope this has given you some inspiration of what is possible in Turks and Caicos, and perhaps inspired you to visit yourself!
