The honeymoon of a lifetime awaits in the TCI

7th June 2018 9:28 am

Are you looking for the perfect blend of romance, natural beauty and excitement to help you celebrate your love? The vast wealth of activities to do on a Turks and Caicos honeymoon are staggering- and no vista could be more perfect than the one awaiting you in the TCI. Imagine stepping out each day onto powder-soft sand and swimming in a staggering blue sea…and doing it all before breakfast! Easy to get to from every corner of the earth, drop-dead gorgeous, and packed with fun and romantic activities, there could be no better honeymoon destination- today Big Blue Collective will prove that to you!

The mood starts at home

Why wait until you set foot on Turks and Caicos soil to start your honeymoon? Say you’re starting your trip to the TCI from the Big Apple herself, New York. You’ve got a flight time of a little under four hours before you feel the soft white beach under your feet. Flying can be seen as a stressful experience, especially if your loved one isn’t the world’s best flyer…so the time to amp up the romance is now.

  • Get organised: You bought the tickets, but there’s a little more to it than that. Make sure all the important stuff- getting your travel documents together, making sure you have the very best beachwear to show off, organising pet and house sitters- well in advance of the trip. Don’t despair if you were hoping to keep it a secret surprise for your special one! Enlist the help of family and friends to make sure everything goes smoothly. Moms know everything, after all!
  • Be timeous: No one likes to rush, and you don’t want to start off your Turks and Caicos honeymoon snapping at each other! Whether you come straight from your nuptials or are celebrating later, make something special of departure day. Have a relaxed meal, double check the gas is off, and take the scenic route to the airport- or even hire a limo.
  • Pamper yourself: The flight’s not too hectic if you’re travelling from the U.S, and it’s not even that bad from Europe- but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it a little more! Spring for a hydrating facial mister, sheet mask for her [and him too] and some comfy slippers so the trip can set the mood for what’s to come. You’ll arrive relaxed and refreshed, ready to party.

Head to the beach, baby!

Of all the activities to enjoy on a Turks and Caicos honeymoon, what could be more refreshing, pampering and bonding then sipping cocktails on the beach? You’re likely to fly into Providenciales, anyway, and it is the island in the chain with some of the most amazing beaches. Take it to expert beachcomber levels by stopping on your way there from the airport- on Provo, nothing is really too far apart, after all! Take a few moments to feel the wind in your hair, the soft sand underfoot and the warming embrace of the sun before you head off to your hotel- it will help set the mood and shake ‘real life’ out of your hair for good!

Once you’re all booked in, it’s time to get some hours in the sun under your belt. It doesn’t matter what time you arrive- romantic evening cocktails as the sun sets or rises, or a day baking in the luxurious heat and sampling the turquoise waters will all help set the perfect TCI honeymoon mood.

Amp up the romance!

There’s a ton of activities to enjoy on a Turks and Caicos honeymoon, so feel free to schedule your days to suit you. We on the Big Blue Collective team, however, can’t think of anything more perfect for your honeymoon enjoyment then a private yacht charter to help you explore the islands in romantic seclusion with each other.

Experience the glitz and glamour of the Monte Carlo lifestyle as you are chauffeured around some of the island chain’s most staggering sites. Explore the remnants of the island’s rich history, snap selfies among Grand Turk’s iconic Caribbean architecture, or take one of our special eco-tours to explore the fascinating diversity of life in this tiny corner of the world. Whatever you do, round it off with a beach picnic and a bottle of bubbly to celebrate your honeymoon in style.

Pep up your energy

However romantic the setting, you probably won’t want to spend all day every day on the beach. After all, you want to still fit that sexy bikini when you go home! The islands are home to a staggering wealth of wind- and water-sports that make for the perfect blend of excitement, fun and adventure.

You don’t have to be a pro already, either. Big Blue Collective can always assist with equipment rentals, and our talented team are on standby to help you learn the basics of each sport. While experienced kiteboarders, divers, windsurfers and more will probably want to head out to explore the region for themselves, if you’re new to the beauties of ‘exercise’ on the beach [it doesn’t feel like it, we promise] then Stand-up Paddleboarding is a must for you.

Accessible to almost everyone, this is one of the fastest growing water sports in the world. Paddle around a nature reserve littered with tiny islands, mangrove channels and breathtaking reefs as the calm water ripples below you. Our experienced guides will take you through known local beauty spots with a knowledgeable but light hand, allowing you to bond and bask in the natural wonder around you. Round the perfect TCI honeymoon off with a little snorkelling to explore the reefs up close and personal.

The activities to enjoy on a Turks and Caicos honeymoon are plentiful, and you’ll find something to enjoy no matter what your style as a couple. Be sure to include the TCI in your honeymoon plans, and Big Blue Collective will help you craft a honeymoon experience you’ll never forget!

Planning A Turks and Caicos Honeymoon

25th July 2017 7:54 am

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).

2) Kayaking

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.

1) Kiteboarding

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.
