It is also renowned for quiet, pristine beaches and impossibly clear waters. Turks and Caicos offer tons of wonderful excursions and activities that you won’t want to miss out on! Here are our suggestions to make the most of your time in this Caribbean paradise.

Scuba Diving/Snorkeling TC has the 3rd largest barrier reef system in the world, which makes it the ideal location for diving and snorkeling. Expect to see an array of colorful fish. If you’re lucky, you may even spot turtles.

Kiteboarding Long Bay Beach is the perfect spot for this mostly undiscovered sport, thanks to its warm and crystal clear waters. It’s ideal for both first time and more seasoned boarders.

Hike the Mudjin Harbour For the adventurous travelers seeking an off-the-beaten-path experience, try a hike along the Mudjin Harbour. While not for everyone, it’s noted by many as one of the most breathtaking natural landscapes in the Caribbean.

Grace Bay One of the most centrally located beaches in Turks & Caicos, Grace Bay is also one of the most beautiful. With its powder white sand, clear azure water and occasional bobbing sailboat in the distance, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a beach more scenic than this.

Salt Cay The best whale-watching beach during the months of January through April, Salt Cay is the place to go if you’d like to get away from the crowds. Here, you’re likely to find the privacy you crave, without giving up the gorgeous white sand and clear water.

Mangrove Cay  Get up close and personal with baby sharks, turtles and more as you wind your way through Mangrove Cay on your SUP or kayak. As part of a nature reserve, the cay lies just off the northeastern end of Providenciales.

Iguana Island (Little Water Cay) Spend the day getting to know these interesting little creatures. They’re quick and great at camouflage, so keep a keen eye out for them.

Horseback Riding on the Beach While many of us have enjoyed horseback riding excursions before, it’s a special and unique treat to wade through the warm, clear water on the backs of these beautiful animals.

Conch Bar Caves The Conch Bar Caves is the largest above-ground cave system in the archipelago of Bahamas & Turks & Caicos. It was formed during the Cretaceous period, over 100 million years ago.

Deep Sea Fishing There are many different fishing excursions to choose from on Turks and Caicos. Choose from deep sea, bottom, bone, fly or sport. The benefit anglers appreciate here is that it’s just a quick trip out to the deep water.

Cheshire Hall  In its heyday as a plantation, Cheshire Hall boasted over 5,000 acres of land. Today, visitors can tour the old slave quarters and the crumbling great hall and cotton presses, which were all raised using local limestone. An eerie sense of history follows you as you walk around the ruins.

Golf  What could be better than a round of golf on a verdant green course, overlooking the impossible blue water of the Caribbean? Enjoy your game at the Provo Golf Club.

Thursday Night Fish Fry  Every Thursday, locals and visitors alike gather at the Bight Children’s Park to sample the offerings from dozens of food vendors. It runs from 5:30 to 9:30.
