Turks and CaicosHoneymoon 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.
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.
Exploring Providenciales by Jeep.
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, 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
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
A remote and beautiful beach in the Turks and 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, 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.
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.

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
