Every year the Turks and Caicos Islands welcome visitors from all over the world who come down to get away and enjoy a nice family vacation.
We’re often asked by callers “what’s there for the kids to do?” here’s our list of favourites:
Undersea Explorer Semi Submarine
The semi submarine experience is one that every child would love. The adventure starts in the Turtle Cover Marina and then over to the Princes Alexandra National Park to see massive and colorful coral reef systems. The tour guide will point out types of fishes and other sea creatures and you’ll be entertained with trivia and a fun and quirky lesson on Turks & Caicos marine life.
Horseback riding is an exhilarating experience and perfect for families with children. Whether the riders are beginners or experienced they will enjoy a beachside ride on the beautiful Leeward beach. Reserve this in advance as spaces usually fill quickly!
Resorts such as the Veranda Resort and Grace Bay Club offer kids camps that are available to children that are not guests at the resort for a fee. Local organizations also offer day camps during the summer months and welcome tourists as well. The day camp will include inside organized activities and also some beach time and kiddie outside games. As parents you won’t have to worry about feeling guilty since the kids will have a chance to make friends on vacation, keep busy while having fun and will be in the capable hands of child care professionals.
Day Pass to Beaches Resort
Beaches Resort has the only water park on Providenciales, 16 restaurants, Pirate’s Island activity center including an X-Box game room, a 50s style diner with self-serve ice cream stations, Sesame Street characters and swim up “bars” – what more could a kid want? Purchase a day pass to the all-inclusive resort and you will have access to the property excluding the kid’s camps. It will be a full day of fun and activity that children of all ages will enjoy.
Half Day Cruise
The entire family will enjoy a half day on the water snorkeling, stopping off at small cays to search for sea shells and sand dollars and beach combing. Some excursions take you to Iguana Island which is an island sanctuary for the endangered Rock Iguana or take you to a shallow spot to find conch and prepare conch salad on board. If you’re really lucky you may spot dolphins in
the clear waters. A fishing trip or an eco-kayak excursion is also a way for the family to bond and spend quality time together on the water.
