The Caribbean is the perfect beginning to the rest of your lives as a married couple. Whether you’re there for a destination wedding or you just want to have a classic Turks and Caicos honeymoon, it’s hard to beat the gorgeous scenery and fun activities.
Having your honeymoon in the Turks and Caicos will put you in a small but posh group of lovebirds. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria, and Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld all married or honeymooned here.
Here are the top five things you can do on a Turks and Caicos honeymoon.
5) Enjoy the Turks and Caicos Resorts
Many of the Providenciales resorts are seemingly built purely for Turks and Caicos honeymoons. Turks and Caicos resorts are world renowned for five-star luxury treatment and the most highly rated ones sit on Grace Bay Beach, a beach so perfect that it often tops various “Top Beaches of the World” lists.
In fact, many of the resorts have staked some prime real estate that puts the beach just a few hundred feet from your room. You can take your time waking up, have a delicious breakfast (or lunch), and stroll to the beach without fear of elbowing your way through a crowded beach. Grace Bay Beach is so large that you and your new spouse won’t have any trouble putting up a beach umbrella, rolling out a couple of beach towels, and lying down to enjoy the sun.
You’ll discover that the common theme among Turks and Caicos resorts are ocean views, luxury creature comforts, and spa services. Certain resorts have amazing suites that come with fully equipped chef-style kitchens, private balconies, and powerful entertainment systems.
No matter which resort you choose, you can rest assured that the staff will do everything they can to make your Turks and Caicos honeymoon a memorable one.
4) Private Charters
Private charters are a great way to see the natural beauty of the Turks and Caicos. The Caribbean islands are beautiful and there’s no better way for a newly married couple to see it than on an intimate, private charter.
You can either rent out an entire boat, or share the boat with a small group. Your captain will take you to nearby sites and beaches that are only accessible by boat. Enjoy lunches on secluded beaches or take a dip in the ocean during your trip.
If you’re lucky, you can even spot migrating humpback whales, which leads us to…
3) Whale Watching
If your Turks and Caicos honeymoon happens to be from December to April, you might be fortunate enough to catch migrating humpback whale mothers and their calves leaving nursery grounds and making their way to their feeding grounds.
While catching sight of whales or dolphins can’t be guaranteed, many boat captains will happily relay whale sightings to other boats carrying passengers. That means you’ll get a chance to be taken on an impromptu whale watching trip while you’re on a private charter exploring the islands and cays.
If you are a water-loving couple who loves diving or snorkeling, you can even share the waters with the whales (if the conditions are right).
With calm waters and shallow channels, kayaking is a favorite activity for honeymooners in the Turks and Caicos, especially at night. It’s hard to beat the romantic scene of paddling into the sunset or just drifting under a full moon with your new husband or wife.
Even if you’re kayaking in the daytime, it’s a fun activity to do on a Caribbean trip. Kayaking is the best way to explore the mangrove forests, coastal ecology, island fauna, and learn about unique island animals and birds. You can even do multi-day kayaking trips for a truly memorable Turks and Caicos honeymoon.
Kiteboarding on your honeymoon is the perfect way to cut loose after a strict wedding itinerary. With year round trade winds, warm ocean waters, shallow coastline, and scenic beaches, the Turks and Caicos is one of the premier kiteboarding sites in the world.
It’s a unique activity so not a lot of people know how to do it. That’s why it’s great for new couples. Both of you can enroll in kiteboarding lessons with a qualified instructor that will get you riding the waves in mere hours.
Make Your Plans!
No matter what you do, you should make your plans ahead of time. Don’t put your romantic honeymoon on the line and risk the lack of availability in the above activities. Not only will it immediately kick off a big argument in your new marriage, but you’ll also miss out on a fun and exciting honeymoon.
