With its serene beaches and a wide selection of world-class spas to choose from, the Turks & Caicos has long been a favorite destination for those seeking peace and relaxation. But there’s more to life here than sunbathing by the sea and body scrubs at the spa. For the adventurous type, this kind of vacation simply won’t do. And they’re in luck, because our islands also offer all sorts of adventurous activities for those looking for a thrill in the Turks & Caicos, as Brittany Anas explains in a recent Forbes article.
Kayaking and paddleboarding
Grab your paddle and head out into the Turks & Caicos mangroves with a kayak or paddleboard. Our mangrove forests are home to an entire ecosystem where juvenile sea life seek refuge. This is an excellent way to spot turtles, baby lemon sharks and a variety of juvenile fish. And all that paddling is a great workout, too.
Kiteboarding? Yes, please.
Did you know the Turks & Caicos is home to one of the best kiteboarding beaches in the world? Head to Long Bay Beach on the south side of the island, where top-notch kiteboarding instructors can show you the ropes of this thrilling sport. Already an experienced kiteboarder? You’ll be amazed at the shallow waters and breezy conditions that make this beach a hot spot for kiters. For a real adventure, head out on a kite safari. This kind of kiteboarding trip will give you the chance to experience the Turks & Caicos backcountry as you cruise the Caicos cays with only your board, kite and that spectacular wind.
With a healthy and vibrant barrier reef that’s home to an abundance of sea life, snorkeling is a must on your Turks & Caicos vacation. And you don’t need much — just a mask, snorkel and fins. Hop on a boat and you can be out on the barrier reef in minutes. Jump in and find out why the Turks & Caicos national motto is “Beautiful by Nature.” From tropical fish to turtles, stingrays to sharks (but don’t worry, they’re more scared of you than you are of them) — there’s an entire world waiting to be discovered beneath our ocean’s surface.
