From the clear, tranquil waters and soft white sands to upscale fine dining and the untamed wilderness of the outlaying cays, you’ll find a whole range of intimate activities to enjoy on a honeymoon or spur of the moment romantic weekend away.
Check out the top 10 best activities and destinations in Turks and Caicos for romantic vacations for couples.
Grace Bay Beach
Where better to enjoy a romantic sunset stroll than on the world’s top-rated beach. Grace Bay Beach is consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the world. And it definitely lives up to the hype as the three mile stretch of idyllic white sand beach has no mega resorts encroaching on its natural beauty.
And even better yet, you won’t find any rocks, seaweed or pollution as this pristine beach is protected by a barrier reef about a mile offshore, keeping the turquoise waters crystal clear and unaffected from Atlantic Ocean swells.
Despite its reputation as the best beach in the world, it never seems crowded and you will always find a secluded spot to enjoy a romantic sunset stroll or beach picnic.
Stargazing The night Away
Turks and Caicos is the ideal location for a romantic night of stargazing from your luxury villa, a white sandy beach or a dreamy night time boat tour.
Thanks to the limited nighttime city lights of even the main island of Providenciales you can enjoy amazing views of the night sky, and thanks to Turks and Caicos’ location close to the Tropic of Cancer many constellations are readily visible that you might not see in other locations.
If you truly want to experience the Caribbean night sky in all its glory there is no better way than to book a stargazing sunset excursion on a sailing catamaran.
Many of these boats have a schedule that involves being out on the water just before sunset, making it ideal to spot the green flash.
Your captain will also be able to point out the various constellations, and if you are in luck you might even encounter the glowworms that inhabit the waters around Providenciales. These unique marine worms emit a distinctive green glow when they take part in their mating ritual. The mating cycle takes place a few days after each full moon. Seeing the water light up with the glow from all these worms is an impressive sight that you won’t want to miss.
Get Lost In Mangrove Cay
If you are looking for the perfect couples’ vacation idea, why not get lost as you paddle through a romantic maze of mangroves, in the aptly named Mangrove Cay. This small uninhabited cay is in close proximity to Providenciales and is part of the Princess Alexandra National Park.
Mangrove Cay is one of the most popular kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding locations in the Turks and Caicos thanks to its unspoiled natural beauty. Paddle your way down shallow and scenic tidal channels that wind their way through an impressive red mangrove forest. And there’s even a shipwreck hidden down one of the channels!
Private Villa Rentals
There are few things in life as romantic as waking up to the sound of the ocean lapping the shore and the sun glistening over the brilliant Caribbean ocean. And no romantic vacation for couples would be complete without a stay at one of the many Turks and Caicos romantic resorts.
Turks and Caicos offers romantic villas and quant beach bungalows to suit any romantic couple’s getaway budget. From all-inclusive adult only mega resorts to luxurious boutique villas, like Aqua Divina, there is sure to be the ideal love nest for your needs.
Smaller luxury resorts like Aqua Divina offer a tailor-made experience that covers all your needs, from booking watersports adventures to car rentals and planning various romantic or action-packed land excursions.
Aqua Divina’s accommodations range from one to eight bedrooms in expansive open-concept villas or a romantic double-bed studio, all set in pristine grounds overlooking the Caribbean ocean. Make the most of your romantic getaway when you are not cruising, diving, or tanning on the nearby Grace Bay Beach, and simply enjoy the peaceful and idyllic scenery of your romantic accommodations.
There is no better way to explore the over 40 Islands and Cays that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands than sailing off into the sunset on a boat tour across the crystal-clear Caribbean waters.
One of the top romantic vacation ideas in the Turks and Caicos is to take a private boat tour and customize your own romantic ocean excursion and choose exactly which sites and attractions you would like to visit, whether it be a beach, reef, or historical place.
If you are looking to mingle and let loose on your romantic getaway, a party boat tour is the ideal ocean adventure for you. Unlike other Caribbean islands, Turks and Caicos does not have large party boats; instead, locals use smaller boats. These tours usually have complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, refreshments, and lots of music.
Or if you are looking to really get up close and personal with the local sea life, why not book an action-packed fishing boat tour, and try your luck at catching some of the local specialties like mahi, grouper, blackfin tuna or even sailfish.
Providenciales Horseback Riding
If you want to explore the magnificent Turks and Caicos coastline in a different and unique way sweep your partner away on a classic romantic horseback riding adventure. Tours are available on Long Bay or Blue Hills Beach on Providenciales where you can race along the shoreline taking in stunning views from the shore line and along magnificent cliffs through pristine nature reserves, or simply wade through the shallow turquoise waters.
Even if you are not an experienced rider, or even if you have never been near a horse, most tour companies offer lessons and you will always be accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide.
Dine Al Fresco With A Private Beach Dinner
Surprise your loved one with this romantic couples’ vacation idea of a private romantic dinner for two under the stars as you stick your toes in the sand and sip on champagne, all whilst your private waiter caters to your every need.
Most resorts in Turks and Caicos offer the option to tailor make your own intimate beach dinner under the stars where every detail will be carefully curated and each menu is customizable to suite every taste bud.
If you are really looking to impress on your romantic Turks and Caicos vacation for couples ask your resort to help you plan a memorable meal under the stars.
Half Moon Bay
Prepare to be mesmerized at Half Moon Bay in the Turks and Caicos Islands! This secluded cay offers something for every romantic couple’s beach holiday.
Whether you’re looking for a beach where you can just relax in a shady spot, float around in turquoise seas, try water sports or simply just indulge in a romantic picnic., Half Moon Bay is where it’s at. And half the fun is getting there!
Take either a 15-minute boat ride from Grace Bay beach or if you are feeling a bit more adventurous you can join a kayaking or paddleboard tour to get there.
Half Moon bay has absolutely no development on it, so make sure to pack a romantic picnic if you plan to spend the day there exploring the stunning rock formations and admiring the wild iguanas. There is also a sheltered lagoon and miniature palm forests to explore.
Thrill Seeking On Long Bay beach
If your romantic beach vacation ideas include a healthy dose of adrenalin then head on over to Long bay beach on Providenciales for some heart-pumping water sports.
Long Bay Beach is the kite surfing hub of Turks and Caicos, and offers a wide range of exciting water sports activities, including jet ski rentals and boat tours. And even if you’re not into adrenalin inducing sports, you’ll find a serene beach where you can lie back and relax and watch the kite boarders go by.
