Turks & Caicos Wedding Planning
Turks & Caicos
The Turks and Caicos consist of 40 different islands, only 8 of which are inhabited. The islands of the Turks and Caicos are almost as diverse as its people. From the main tourist center of Providenciales to the quiet and tranquil islands of North and Middle Caicos to the historic Capital Island of Grand Turk; each offers a different experience and a unique character, but all offer great climate, beaches and underwater activities year round.
Home to the “Best Beach in the World,” breathtaking hues from inviting waters, and legendary diving, snorkeling and fishing, the Turks & Caicos Islands beckon you to an undiscovered Caribbean.
Travel to the Turks and Caicos is easy and efficient. Just a short flight from the east coast of the US, the islands are a tropical classic, a throwback in time where relaxation is unavoidable and rejuvenation ensured. World class hotels, spas, and restaurants await, as do the famous stretches of un-crowded beaches and vibrant coral reefs. On land or below the water, you’ll relax in the unique serenity, hospitality and the breathtaking beauty of its islands.
Secluded bays and islands where you’ll see more wild donkeys than other travelers. Historic towns and villages that look like something out of a pirate movie, where life creeps along at a sedate pace.
While development is on the rise, all one has to do is dig a bit deeper, catch a boat to the next island over and the solace of solitude returns: islands like Grand Turk are set in a time long since passed, with dilapidated buildings, salt ponds and narrow lanes, and contrast with the ever-expanding Providenciales, tourist gateway to the Caicos Islands. Divers and beach aficionados will rejoice at the quality of the sea here.
Clear warm waters teem with sea life, yet are devoid of crashing waves. Even the most ardent land lubber can’t help but be mesmerized by the azure water and golden sand
Conch Bar Caves
Conch Bar Caves, which span 1.5 miles, are recognized as one of the biggest cave systems within the Caribbean territories. It can be found close to the Conch Bar village in Middle Caicos, and on the tour, look out for the wildlife, ice-like stalactites, lagoons, stalagmites and the colonies of bats that can be found within this wondrous cave system.
Take a Sunset Catamaran Cruise
The Turk & Caicos Islands are a top choice for honeymooners from around the world. As a whole, they are considered a destination simply, ‘made for love.’ Whether you’re getting married, have gotten married, or you just want to celebrate your love, a sunset catamaran cruise is highly recommended while in the islands. The cruise offers picturesque views of the island, while you and the love of your life rock to melodious Caribbean music. If you don’t feel much like dancing, you can relax on the boat and savor the gourmet style refreshments and some cool, tropical drinks as the sun sets in the distance.
There’s no better way to return home from vacation, than to bring along some souvenirs to make your entire family feel as though they too have experienced a vacation in paradise. In the Turks and Caicos, there are plenty of places to shop for these, such as Alverna’s Craft Market. You’ll also find souvenirs and gift items at stores in the shopping plaza in the Grace Bay area.
