My perfect day in Turks & CaicosBreakfast on the beach at Hemingway’s; island hop from Iguana Cay to Fort George Cay. Shelling for sand dollars. Fresh lobster and conch BBQ on Half Moon Bay. Sunset Sail on Atebeyra and then watch the glow worms after the full moon…. but here’s a close second – Spend the morning strolling Mudjin Harbor in Middle Caicos, wonder and wade over to Dragon Cay, and take a hike on Crossing Place Trail all the way to the Blowing Hole and back (taking a dip on all the undiscovered beaches along the way)
