Just-wedded bliss in the Turks and Caicos

23rd September 2018 10:37 am

Are you looking for the world’s ultimate romantic destination? Then a Turks and Caicos honeymoon is exactly what you are searching for. Warm weather, soft sand and beautiful seas will call to even the most practical heart, while the islands are simplicity itself to get to from anywhere else in the world. Let Big Blue Collective help you celebrate your union in the blissful peace of one of the world’s most beautiful destinations.

Celebrate your honeymoon in a Caribbean paradise

After the stress and strain of a wedding, it’s time to relax and celebrate your love. How can you not feel the romance as a newly-wed couple when the view from your room features swaying palms, lapping warm seas that feel like stepping into a bathtub, and the bright sun and sky of a tropical paradise? Step out onto the powder-soft sand and feel the cares of daily life [and that pesky remaining stress from your nuptials] melt away, leaving you refreshed, reinvigorated and thoroughly at home. Switch off your phones, crack out the camera and get ready to rediscover your love sipping cocktails under the soft Bermudan stars.

Let the beach life woo you

Did you know that Grace Beach is widely thought to be one of the very best beaches in the world? If you’re opting to stay on the most populated of the Turks and Caicos honeymoon islands, Providenciales, then there’s a strong chance you’ll just need to open your doors to see for yourself. Pamper yourselves and bond a little as you relax on the many rival beaches this small island has to offer, as the wind flips your hair and the sun warms your skin. Watch the sunset together with a cocktail on hand, or bask in the warm ocean as the sun rises behind you. Find a favourite beach for relaxation and recharge, or sample them all- in the TCI, you’ll never be sorry.

Bond through fun and adventure

Let the long arm of history reach back through time and brush your heart. Throughout the islands you’ll find the ruins of plantations and traces of the salt industry that brought swashbuckling pirates and brave explorers to this secluded corner of the world. While both trades have long since moved on, the romantic ruins left behind are perfect for a day spent exploring. Round off the experience with a picnic on the beach. On the outlying islands, there’s a good chance you’ll be the only ones, giving you your own private beach to enjoy for the day.

If all the relaxation has you wanting to burn off some adrenaline, then you’ve come to the right spot! Plan yourselves an active Turks and Caicos honeymoon and indulge in every wind- and water sport you could possibly imagine. Experience isn’t necessary, either, as the Big Blue Collective team are always happy to run you through the basics, and we offer equipment rental too.

Kiteboarding, parasailing and more are all open to you on the island, and with the still mangrove channels beckoning you to come and play, you’re bound to have fun exploring. If you’re looking for something a little calmer, stand up paddle boarding is just perfect for you. Calm water will ripple around your board as you drift quietly through the flat blue waters surrounding the islands, enabling you to enjoy the calls of the birds around you and meet the animal life of the TCI up close and personal without the disruption of an outboard motor.

Much of the area is classed as a nature reserve- one of the few worldwide which encompass a wealth of marine as well as land life- and you’ll be able to explore among the tiny islets and channels freely with our experienced guides. Don’t worry- this is no scheduled route march, you’ll be free to set the pace yourselves and wander where you will to shape the ultimate Turks and Caicos honeymoon for your tastes.

Explore an underwater tropical Eden

The land isn’t the only chance for romance the islands offer. Spend some of your Turks and Caicos honeymoon snorkelling among the coral reefs. Local beauty spots can be found close offshore or by boat, so there’s plenty to see. Watch bright tropical fish flit among the perfect reefs, or say ‘Hi’ to a friendly stingray or two as the flap around you.

Take it a step further and book a couple’s dive with us. The seascape around the TCI literally could not be more perfect for divers, offering several wall sites as the plateau around the islands drops away to the distant seabed. There’s also a few cave diving opportunities, and some well-known wrecks to explore. Or stick with the beauties of the undisturbed reefs and explore their grandeur as fish wiggle past you.

Sail into the sunset

Add an extra touch of luxury to your Turks and Caicos honeymoon experience, and charter a private yacht to take you where you will. Whether it’s exploring the islands, heading out into the ‘backlands’ to encounter the amazing ecology of the area and it’s caves and cliffs, searching through historical sites and getting in some diving, or simply living the big life and enjoying each other’s company, nothing adds a personal touch like your very own boat and crew.

Allow yourselves to be ‘chauffeured’ from destination to destination in ultimate style, relax on the beach from sunrise to sunset, take a cooling dip in the pool or get active and head out for an adventure- whatever flavour of romance you’re looking for on your Turks and Caicos honeymoon, Big Blue Collective can help you craft the ultimate getaway for you and your true love, so get in touch with our helpful team today.

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.
