Turks and Caicos Honeymoon Guide

The Turks and Caicos is a spectacular destination for weddings and honeymoons, with some of the most beautiful white sand beaches and turquoise water in the world. We are home to a wide array of accommodations, from quaint and romantic beach bungalows, to 5-star luxury resorts.

Which Island for Your Honeymoon?

For most people, world-famous Grace Bay Beach comes to mind when the Turks and Caicos is mentioned. However, our archipelago is home to more than 100 named islands and cays, of which nine are inhabited and have accommodations. Our lesser-known islands all have their attractions and unique ambiances, and can be a great choice for a honeymoon.

Providenciales

Providenciales, home to Grace Bay Beach and the majority of resorts, hotels, and restaurants in the Turks and Caicos, attracts nearly all of the overnight guest that visit the country. The island offers by far the great selection of activities and charters, and is the best choice for gourmet dining and nightlife.

Grand Turk

Grand Turk, home to the capital city of Cockburn Town and once the bustling center of activity in the country. Provo has overtaken the role of ‘city island’ from Grand Turk, and now tourism drives the island. Two distinct types are found, cruise guests that visit via the Grand Turk Cruise Center, and boutique scuba diving.

Grand Turk offers an atmosphere that’s quite different from Providenciales, with an old colonial beachfront town, roaming donkeys, and a small island that can be explored rather quickly. Diving is excellent, with boat trips out to beautiful site typically only taking minutes. The old homes and villas have a unique Bermudian feel, and the Bohio Resort offers wedding, honeymoon, and all-inclusive packages.

North Caicos and Middle Caicos

The verdant Garden Islands of North Caicos and Middle Caicos are laid-back, quiet, and sparsely developed. There’s an endless number of beautiful and secluded beaches to discover, inspiring landscapes, and the majestic Mudjin Harbour coastline.

There are no luxury resorts on either island and only vacation rentals and villas, some of which can be modest. The islands, however, are the perfect choice if you appreciate nature and rather not have to see many people.

South Caicos

South Caicos, the fishing capital of the Turks and Caicos and once a major sea salt producer, has just begun to pursue the luxury tourism market. There are two beautiful resorts, Sailrock on the scenic northern peninsula, and East Bay Resort. Like Grand Turk, South Caicos isn’t large, yet the adjacent cays, sounds, and channels offer a completely different prospective. There’s the small fishing village of Cockburn Harbour on one side of the island, yet much of the remainder is secluded and undeveloped, and there’s no shortage of awe-inspiring landscapes and coastlines to discover.

Salt Cay

The often-overlooked island of Salt Cay combines excellent diving and whale watching with secluded beaches, and is another quiet destination. The accommodation options are limited to rental vacation homes, and a handful of restaurants complete the dining choices.

Private Cays

There are three private island retreats in the Turks and Caicos, all of which feature both all-inclusive experience accommodations and luxury villas. Private transport via boat or aircraft is required to these cays, yet may be included with some resort stays.

Pine Cay, located near Providenciales, is home to the laid-back and tranquil Meridian Club resort, which can boast of one of the finest beach settings of any hotel in the Turks and Caicos. Pine Cay is connected by sand bar to Water Cay, Half Moon Bay, and Little Water Cay, so collectively there are miles of deserted and perfect white sand beach. The cay offers little beyond the hotel and some private homes, so attractions and shopping are very limited.

Parrot Cay, a popular retreat for the rich and famous, is located near North Caicos. The exclusive COMO Parrot Cay Resort offers suites, standalone cottages, and larger villas. As is also the case with Salt Cay and Pine Cay, there’s not a lot of activities, shopping, or off-resort dining, which is what appeals to some guests.

Ambergris Cay is the remote private island in the Turks and Caicos, and is located a bit south of scenic Long Cay and South Caicos. Ambergris Cay Resort offers all-inclusive stays in luxury villas, with concierge and butler services. The resort is part of the Turks and Caicos Collection, and the cay offers a beautiful and unique ecosystem which is a haven for many of our endemic snakes and lizards, and our Turks and Caicos Rock Iguana.

What Type of Accommodation?

Accommodations in the Turks and Caicos can loosely be defined as one of three types: the classic hotel or resort, all-inclusive resorts, and vacation homes and villas. Each has its own advantages.

Hotels and Resorts

Hotels and resorts on Providenciales range from budget options to five-star resorts, and everything in between. For an intimate hotel, some great choices are Beach House and Wymara resort on the Bight Beach, Point Grace and The Palms on Grace Bay Beach, the Shore Club on Long Bay Beach, and Amanyara at the remote Malcolm's Road Beach.

All-inclusive Resorts

There are many Turks and Caicos all-inclusive resorts to choose from, with a full range of ambiances. Beaches Turks and Caicos is the largest in the country. The resort is family-oriented, yet does offer wedding and honeymoon packages as well.

The Turks and Caicos Collection on Providenciales includes Beach House, Alexandra Resort, and Blue Haven Resort, and guests staying at one site can access the amenities and dining of the other two.

Club Med Turkoise is an adult-only all-inclusive, is located on a prime stretch of Grace Bay, and offers many activities and things to do.

Off Providenciales, all-inclusive vacations are available at the Meridian Club on Pine Cay, Bohio Dive Resort on Grand Turk, East Bay Resort on South Caicos, and Ambergris Cay Resort on Ambergris Cay.

Villas and Vacation Rentals

Villas and vacation rentals typically offer greater privacy and seclusion over most hotels, and may also be located at their own small beach. In many cases, it’s possible to arrange butler services and a private chef. As is the case with hotels, there’s a full range of prices and properties available.

Top Honeymoon Attractions and Activities

Besides simply relaxing on one of our spectacular beaches, a boat charter or tour is our top suggested activity for all guests visiting the Turks and Caicos. There’s a wide selection of vessels, excursions, and destinations to choose from, aboard both power vessels and sailboats.

An intimate private charter is the perfect honeymoon choice. A luxurious Axopar powerboat, which can quickly and comfortably get to remote and exquisite destinations such as the West Caicos Marine National Park, Little Ambergris Cay, and Fort George Cay will appeal to some, yet a tranquil sailboat is also an excellent choice, and an authentic sailing experience is unforgettable and is something everyone should try at least once.

A sunset or glowworm cruise is the counterpart to a day boat cruise, and is also highly recommended. Both shared and private cruises are offered, aboard either powerboats or sailing vessels. A private horseback ride is another romantic thing to do, and stables are located near Long Bay Beach and Blue Hills Beach. Rides often include some wading in our turquoise waters when desired!

Several of the beachfront restaurants, including Bay Bistro and Zest restaurant at Wymara resort offer romantic and private beachfront couples dining.

All of our islands are home to spectacular beaches, and with a rental car or jeep, you can get out and discover them.

If you’re looking for something that’s a little livelier, some great considerations include visiting the tap room at our local Turk's Head Brewery, or getting a day or night pass to one of the larger all-inclusive resorts. Both Beaches Turks and Caicos and Club Med Turkoise offer day and evening passes, which include unlimited food and drinks, as well as many activities and water sports.

Potcake Place is another fun thing to do. Potcakes are a unique and friendly breed of dog found in the Turks and Caicos and Bahamas, and the Potcake Place rescue charity offers the chance to take cute puppies out for socialization walls on Grace Bay Beach! If you’re not careful, you may end up with a newly adopted family member!

Want to try something exciting? Some exhilarating watersports include freediving, which is easier and more rewarding than you may initially expect, and guided jet ski tours, which can visit interesting sights such as West Harbour Bluff, Bay Cay, the La Famille Express shipwreck, and more.

An island drop off is another consideration. A few companies will transport guests to one of our secluded cays with a cooler and umbrella, and then come back later for transport back. You’ll get a large expanse of beach and ocean to yourselves, and possible destinations include Little Water Cay, Half Moon Bay, Water Cay, Pine Cay, and Fort George Cay.

Last but not least is a spa visit. There are many beachfront spas to choose from, which offer wide menus of couples massages and beauty treatments.

Shopping and Souvenirs

The Grace Bay region on Providenciales is the home of luxury shopping in the Turks and Caicos. Browse designer brands and jewelry, imported and local alcohol and tobacco products, and local arts and crafts.

Local jewelers may also be able to craft custom pieces to commemorate your wedding and visit to the Turks and Caicos.

There are several galleries in Grace Bay, which feature collections of fine art photos, paintings, sculptures, and more.
