Turks and Caicos a Dream Honeymoon
Looking for a fabulous idea for your honeymoon? How about the Turks and Caicos? They have everything a couple in love could desire. We visited and loved every moment. Let me tell you all about it!
Providenciales, nicknamed “Provo,” is the most popular destination in the Turks and Caicos island chain. We stayed at a resort called Villa del Mar, across the street from Grace Bay Beach which Condé Nast Traveller has called the best beach in the world (Spoiler Alert: All of the beaches in Turks and Caicos are the best!)
Here are 5 reasons why Turks and Caicos could be your dream honeymoon spot:
1. Gorgeous Beaches
The water is a perfect aqua blue, and that perfect blue water laps onto a white sand shore stretching on forever. Everywhere you go there are friendly people offering you a towel or a cabana or a drink.
Romance Tip: take a walk down the beach facing directly west at sunset. You may see a green flash of light as the sun goes down, which is pretty amazing.
2. Everything Is “Easy"
Provo has a charmingly sleepy vibe. Everyone takes time to relax and enjoy life, which is a nice change from the rush and pressure of daily routine. Where better to bask in your newly-wedded bliss than in a world where the clock ticks a little slower? You are on your honeymoon in the Caribbean to escape the fast pace of your everyday life, right? Sit back and enjoy it.
Another easy thing about Turks and Caicos: It’s an English-speaking country where the US dollar is the official currency. Let’s just take a moment to appreciate how amazing that is! The voltage is also the same as in the US, which means there are no annoying outlet converters to (forget to) pack. It takes very little time to get there, and direct flights leave daily from Tampa.
3. The Weather
The temperature is in the 80s year round and it rarely rains. Also, according to the Turks and Caicos Tourism Board, hurricanes usually pass north or south of the islands without making impact. If that’s true, this place is truly paradise.
4. Beyond the Beach
If you insist on “being adventurous,” there are plenty of activities to do. Snorkeling and scuba diving are two of the most popular activities in T&C because, as mentioned, the waters are stunning. You can easily book a diving tour or rent gear and explore for yourself.
For some indoor time with your new spouse, there are spas at many of the resorts to help take your relaxation to the next level. Two casinos reside on the island if you want to try your luck with a portion of wedding cash. Like to people watch? Local Irish pub Danny Buoy’s has Karaoke on Tuesdays!
5. Thursday Night Fish Fry
Every Thursday night in Provo, there is a fish fry in a park along the beach. With tents from local restaurants and vendors, live music, dancing, drinks, crafts by local artist, and delicious grilled lobster for only $18, the Fish Fry is a fun way to immerse yourselves in local culture.
So what do you think? Book a flight! The islands are awaiting you!
