Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort is home to the best water park in the Caribbean.  Pirates Island is a fantasy world filled with gigantic waterslides, kid-friendly pools and swim-up soda bars.  There are also water cannons, whirlpools and lazy river journeys, as well as the Caribbean’s only surf simulator.

Getting Out on the Water: Kayaking and Other Excursions

While most properties include non motorized water sports, water sports and excursion operators offer kids-oriented trips, which can be educational and exciting for your kids.  Big Blue, for examples offers half day kayak tours, Caicos Dream Tours and Island Vibes offer a snorkel and conch cruise including snorkel, beach combing, looking for shells and other marine life).

Water sports and excursion operators offer kids-oriented trips, which can be educational and exciting for youngsters. Big Blue, for examples offers half day kayak tours, private charters to explore the cays (including snorkel, beach combing, looking for shells & other marine life).

Back on the water – or underneath it, actually – try the Undersea Explorer, a very cool semi-submarine ride that lets you see our teeming reefs and abundant sea life up close and personal, and even a LIVE MERMAID – all without getting wet.

If you’re kids aren’t old enough to try scuba diving (the legal age limit is 12), try the next big thing – SnubIt’s a safe, monitored activity that lets kids and adults alike literally get their feet wet with the scuba experience, but with supervision and a breathing system that is perfect for beginners.

Best Snorkeling Spot for Kids in Turks and Caicos: Coral Gardens

A fun – and free – activity the kids always enjoy is snorkeling from shore. It’s fun and easy, and you’ll often see colorful fish, turtles, lobsters and other cool stuff!  The best spot snorkeling spot for kids is at Coral Gardens in the Bight. You can snorkel and see beautiful reefs and fish in waist deep water.

Where to Pick Up Snorkel Gear

Masks and fins are typically complimentary at most resorts. Snorkel gear is available at any of the dive and water-sports shops around the islands, and rentals can be arranged with the most scuba dive shops.

Grace Bay Beach: A Paradise for Families


Along Grace Bay Beach you can try parasailing and banana boat rides, as well as Hobie Cats. Waterskiing, wakeboarding, kiteboarding and windsurfing are also available, with several shops offering instruction for all ages.

In short, there’s no shortage of ways to entertain the kids and the entire family – even if all you want to do is just hang out on the beach and look for that perfect shell to bring home.
