Do more of what you love
There’s something for everyone in the Turks and Caicos. Drink in the vibrancy of Grand Turk or Provo. Explore the heart of the islands with eco-tours to South, North, Middle, and Eastern Caicos. Let the history and romance of sleepy Caribbean towns woo you, or get lost in the pristine natural beauty of the back islands. Learn more about the bustling fishing industry of Southern Caicos (and sample fresh seafood at its very best) or party in Provo and sip cocktails on the beach. You’ll never run out of things to do in the Turks and Caicos. In fact, you’ll find yourself coming back over and over again to explore everything!
Coming home to Provo
Every dream holiday in the Turks and Caicos should start on Providenciales. As the most populated island, it’s the perfect base for your holiday. Luxury living is easy with a host of gorgeous private villas of every shape, size, and proximity to amenities you could ever want. Some of the world’s best beaches unfold right at your doorstep, exciting sites to explore are a mere walk or cycle ride away, and there’s enough to fill an entire holiday in itself. Visit the world’s only conch farm, and learn about this cornerstone of the local culture. Head to West Harbour Bluff or Frenchman’s Creek Nature Reserve to enjoy a day out in nature, or head to Cheshire Hall Plantation for a dose of fascinating local history.
Now it’s time to head to the beach for some fun in the sun, or jump right into the beautiful warm sea for watersports galore. There’s ‘The Hole’, an inland sinkhole that can be explored, for experienced divers to enjoy, or head straight out to the reef with snorkelling or diving gear. If you’re new to either sport, or want to try your hand at kitesurfing, the Big Blue Collective’s headquarters near Long Beach Bay for a lesson or two.
If you’re keen to experience the local nightlife, Provo also has a few clubs to enjoy. Or sip cocktails on the beach as the sun sinks, and then head to one of the local restaurants to enjoy fresh seafood and good friends.
An Island hopping adventure
The Big Blue Collective is here to help you shape the dream holiday of a lifetime, so it’s up to you what you want to do first. Why not take a yacht charter and head out on an island-hopping adventure to beat all others?
Let the spectacular beauty of the wild Turks and Caicos woo you with one (or several) of our back islands eco-tours. Salt Cay brings you an untouched Caribbean island far off the tourist track. Explore the salt salinas and drink in the coastal views, or hop in the water for some of the best diving in the Turks and Caicos. Or head to South Caicos to enjoy the best landscapes you’ll ever see. Kayaking the mangrove channels and excellent watersports await. Kick off a walking tour at friendly Cockburn Harbour, and explore the historical sites on the island. Or grab a delicious lunch while flamingos play around you. This is also the perfect time for some mountain biking, if you’re keen.
The marvels of Mudjin Harbour
It’s time to head to Middle Caicos! Hop on the ferry to meet the locals, or take a convenient yacht charter for extra flexibility. The towering limestone cliffs of the harbour bring endless chances to explore spectacular cave systems, including the Conch Bar Caves, the biggest non-submerged caves in the area. Indian Cave offers awe-inspiring open galleries and skylights to enjoy.
The ruins of historic plantations, or hidden bays and the bright waters of Cottage Pond make excellent trips, while beautiful beaches are everywhere you turn. Top it off with a day on the water diving and snorkelling, or head to the wild east end of the island for the Wild Cow Run and Windward-Going-Through channels for kiteboarding and picnics.
Graceful Grand Turk
No trip to the Turks and Caicos is complete without a day in Grand Turk. The second most urban island in the chain, you can fly from Provo or head out on a yacht charter. Vist wild stingrays at Gibbs Cay, or explore the looming lighthouse and the gorgeous scenery surrounding it. Spend some time wandering around the town, as its Bermudan architecture is remarkable. Don’t leave the exquisite St Maty’s Anglican Church off that list! If you’re so inclined, you can head to the Turks and Caicos National Museum, too.
If you hit each of these spectacular destinations as part of your dream holiday itinerary, you’ll have the perfect blend of wild beauty and modern luxury living, spectacular fun on the waves and under them, and plenty of time to relax and rejuvenate as well as rack up adventures in the wild.
