It’s time to excite your world and give a new meaning to surf and turf! The Turks and Caicos are well known for some of the best snorkelling in the world, wonderful biking trail experiences and perfect kayaking conditions. Did you know that they all pair together perfectly, too? If you’re a born island-hopper who wants to experience the beauty of the back islands, there’s no more perfect pair to ensure you experience the holiday of a lifetime. The Big Blue Collective are here to show you how.
Biking- the hidden Caribbean adventure
Yes, you can bike in the TCI! Away from the main roads around Provo, you’re unlikely to encounter much automobile traffic at all, which makes it safe, too. While there are some beautiful sites to explore on Provo itself, you’ll also be able to enjoy whizzing along through pristine nature on North and Middle Caicos. In fact, it’s one of the best ways to stay fit and active while exploring the back islands. Here you’ll experience heartachingly beautiful natural views, as well as the chance to explore the ruins of the plantations and salt industry that were once the powerhouse of the island’s economy. Take a moment to drink in the solitude of empty beaches, experience adrenaline-pumping thrills as you whisk over hills, and feel your heart soar to match the speed of your wheels as you whizz through the most beautiful scenery in the world. The TCI is one of the best adventure destinations in the world, and the adventures in the back islands are something you just can’t miss.
Kayaking- see the world from a different view
With the wealth of wonderful water sports at your fingertips that the Caribbean provides, you’d be forgiven if kayaking slips slightly off your radar. Yet it shouldn’t! Not only is it a great way to keep in shape while you’re on holiday (and an excuse to indulge in some extra fresh-caught seafood that evening), it also gives you a unique view of the world few get to experience. Sculling over the water at such a low level allows you to immerse yourself in the magic of the flora and fauna around you. Watch rays and tiny lemon sharks flit through the clear water right by you. Giggle at the antics of the tropical fish. Watch birds dive and wheel above you. And admire the beauties of the bays and channels you’re paddling through.
Kayaking brings a nature experience like no other to the table, and it’s a surprisingly accessible sport. Bliss and natural stillness soothe the soul, while the many natural delights surrounding you uplift the spirit and delight the heart.
Snorkelling- explore the majesty of the sea
It’s no secret that snorkelling is the can’t-miss adventure in the Turks and Caicos that almost anyone can enjoy. Our exquisite natural barrier reef- the 3rd largest, and possibly best-preserved, in the world- is a natural wonder everyone should enjoy. It’s possibly our best-known snorkelling site, with a dazzling array of marine life calling the reef home. You could spend days exploring it alone. However, there’s a lot more to enjoy, too! The Big Blue Collective is proud to be able to offer you some hidden island secrets, including snorkelling destinations like no other.
With the warm, still, water the area is known for and the remarkable visibility experienced almost year-round, there’s never a bad time to snorkel in the Turks and Caicos. Unlike diving, you don’t need much aptitude (other than basic swimming abilities) to enjoy a snorkel trip, either, and it allows you to dip your head into the world beneath the water. Be dazzled by exotic sea life, delighted by the antics of the fishes, and possibly encounter a dolphin or two! The magic of the sea is calling your name.
Create the perfect island-hopping experience
While many people make Provo or Grand Turk their home base and stay there for the entirety of their Turks and Caicos holiday, we encourage visitors looking for an adventure to embrace the chance to hop through the many beautiful out islands the Turks and Caicos has to offer. This way, you can experience both the luxuries of the main ports, and the heart-stopping beauty and adrenaline-pumping adventure of exploring nature at her best. The untouched lushness of the natural world is sure to draw you in, making you want to come back again and again.
But why ruin the magic? While you can always hop on a boat to jump between islands, you well could find yourself resenting being pulled from the peace and serenity of nature back to a technological world. If you’re looking to refresh your soul and reset your mind, kayaking between the islands offers you the perfect chance to decompress at your own speed, still fully immersed in nature.
Biking, kayaking, and snorkelling make the perfect island-hopping trio. You can adventure on your own timetable, and enjoy the view your way. Enjoy the very best views on land and sea, and then experience the magic unfolding beneath the waves. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to embrace your wild side and rejuvenate your soul in one of the most beautiful landscapes you’ll ever experience. Nature is calling to you- it’s time to answer!
The expertise of our Big Blue Collective guides will help you create the wild and wonderful experience your soul craves. Why not get in touch with the team today? We’ll craft you an adventure you’ll never forget, in a natural world so beautiful you will never want to leave.
