What do you look for in a honeymoon? A world-class hotel? Pampering spa? Delicious dining options? Beaches consistently ranked among the best in the world? We know a place that has all of the above and more. Here are some ideas to get you started on planning your ultimate honeymoon vacation to Turks and Caicos.

WHERE TO STAY

If you’re looking for the perfect place to call your temporary honeymoon home, here are some resorts to consider:

The Palms Resort

The Palms Resort is a perfect choice if you’re looking for full-service beachfront luxury and the royal treatment. This classy Grace Bay resort has everything you could possibly want in a honeymoon vacation — including a heavenly spa and delectable dining options.

Wymara Resort Turks and Caicos

Wymara Turks and Caicos attracts a hip crowd with its sleek and sophisticated ambience aided by a 7,000 sq.-foot infinity pool and chic accommodations. The spa, restaurants and the Pink Bar on the beach rounds out the experience, and you’re only an 8-minute walk from a reef where you and your love can snorkel right off the beach.

WHAT’S YOUR FANCY?

Our ‘beautiful by nature’ Turks and Caicos Islands is truly an extraordinary place to visit, and most people are forever changed after their first trip here. There’s really no “bad” advice I can give. There are no gaudy tourist traps or places you should avoid. On the contrary, most people know these islands as a place of discovery, wonder and unparalleled beauty. So, it’s more just an issue of deciding what type of vacation you prefer.

Do you want to just dig your toes in the sand, and let the ocean breezes carry your troubles away? Want some adventure? Want some romance?

Want all of the above?

HIT THE BEACH!

For starters, I would suggest spending a good deal of time on the beach. Most of our hotels and resorts are located right on or near the three-mile stretch of Grace Bay (often ranked the #1 beach in the world), with its panoramic views of sparkling turquoise waters and striking white sands.

If you want a hot tip, try snorkeling and/or scuba diving. Coral Gardens (aka Bight Reef) is a popular spot for snorkeling right off shore, and for good reason. Here you will experience brightly colored coral formations, as well as rare and exotic marine life, such as yellowtail snappers, sea turtles, stingrays, sea urchins and lobsters (TWO TIPS! Wake early one morning and start your snorkel at 7 a.m to see more sea life. Also, snorkel to the left of the marked off area by the turtle grass for your best chance of seeing turtles). A night dive will yield exhilarating views of octopi, green moray eels and timid reef/nurse sharks.

There are many other spectacular beaches on Providenciales (checkout Val’s Top 5 picks here), such as Long Bay Beach, excellent for peaceful, secluded romantic walks and home of the luxurious Shore Club, and the off-the-beaten track Malcolm’s Beach, excellent for some snorkeling as well.

Interested in a day trip tour? Try our ‘Day in North and Middle Caicos‘ tour, where you can experience the breathtaking Mudjin Harbor. Just a short ferry ride away from Providenciales, you’ll arrive on North Caicos then drive to the the island of Middle Caicos (population of just over 500) for some solitary exploring. The dramatic limestone cliffs, lush greenery, and open-faced sea caves make for some stunning scenery.

ROMANTIC EVENING RESTAURANTS

To eat, I would highly recommend the romantic and picturesque Coco Bistro, where you dine underneath a canopy of coconut palms, for gourmet food, or, if you want more of a lively tropical beach bar, visit Ricky’s on the beach, Bugaloo’s, or the highly popular da Conch Shack (see Val’s video here on da Conch Shack) which serves up island specialties, such as cracked conch, jerk chicken and rum punch in a casual, fun, beachfront atmosphere. Other amazing experiences for romantic evening ambiance can be found at Grace Bay Club’s Infinity Bar, Caicos Cafe, Mango Reef, Bay Bistro, and several others.

TABLE FOR TWO ON THE BEACH

You can never go wrong with a romantic candle-lit dinner on the beach. You lovebirds can personally choose every detail you prefer, or leave it to the professionals to create the ambience and flair that you desire.

LIVE OUT A PRIVATE ISLAND FANTASY

Ever dream of the both of you ALONE on a romantic getaway on your own private beach? Get cozy while you listen to the soundtrack of the sea. Live the dream, at least for a day, with an undisturbed day of relaxation and solitude. But consider this a step above camping — you’ll have everything you need for the day, including umbrellas, beach chairs, lunch and wine.

HORSEBACK RIDING ON THE BEACH

You’ve seen it in the movies, and now here’s your chance to experience it yourselves in crystal clear waters – a romantic horseback ride on a quiet white-sand beach.

NEED MORE LOVEY DOVEY ISLAND IDEAS?

Consider taking a romantic walk down the beach at sunset, followed by fruity cocktails at Bay Bistro with front row seats in front of the cocean. Consider upping the romantic quotient with a luxurious couple’s massage. Consider something more quirky and memorable, like taking a glow worm tour and watching the electric green hues burst and explode in the nighttime waters, or consider taking a caving tour and explore the stalagtites and stalagmites of the intricate cave system of picturesque Middle Caicos. Or perhaps do something adventurous! Take a deep dive and revel in the undersea beauty, as you view healthy, thriving coral, stunning, brightly colored schools of fish, slithering green morays, sea urchins and lobsters. End your story filled days with a glass of wine on your suite’s balcony overlooking the ocean before you indulge in a candlelit bath for two.
