Deciding on a honeymoon destination can be tough. Realistically, this is going to be a holiday to top all holiday’s. Much like your wedding day, it is going to be something that you remember for the rest of your lives.
If it’s going to be the best holiday ever, you’re going to want to find somewhere that has everything to offer; sun, sea, beautiful beaches, activities and great food.
One destination we believe has all of these things is the Turks and Caicos Islands. One of the lesser known Caribbean destinations, this collection of small islands is the definition of picture-perfect.
So, here’s 5 reasons why Turks and Caicos is the perfect destination for your honeymoon.
There’s no questioning the idyllic beauty of the Caribbean; the white beaches, the palm trees, the crystal blue sea and cloudless skies.
Turks & Caicos is no different. If you enjoy soaking up the sun with a rum cocktail in one hand and your partner’s hand in the other, there is nowhere more perfect on the planet.
You really will be treated to the very best if you stay on Provinciales which is one of the larger islands. This is because one of its beaches called Green Bay was recently named the no.1 beach in the world by
If your idea of a perfect honeymoon revolves around lounging on a blissful beach, you can’t go wrong with the best beach in the world, can you?
You can have all the perfect beaches in the world, but if the right hotels and resorts aren’t available, the stay just isn’t going to be quite perfect is it?
Luckily, there are a number of absolutely fantastic resorts which are not only of the highest quality but cater especially for couples on a romantic retreat.
is one such resort. A stunning boutique hotel built on the perfect sands of Grace Bay. We asked them about hosting honeymooners, they told us, “We understand that for couples who have just married, they are hoping to have the greatest holiday of their lives.”
“It’s all about giving newlyweds what they want. Ensure all of the hotel facilities are the best they can be, that there’s plenty of romantic extras to enjoy and that they have all of the space, peace and quiet they want.”
In recent years, Turks and Caicos has become an increasingly popular destination for couples either on their honeymoon or couples who want a destination wedding.
For this reason, the whole place better caters for couples. Don’t worry about being disturbed by massive families or a strip of nightclubs at the end of your resort, because it just isn’t that kind of place.
It is even a popular romantic getaway for some of the world’s biggest stars. The Bruce Willis is said to have a villa on the islands, Zac Efron and Eva Longoria love to escape here andeven chose it as their destination wedding back in the summer of 2005.
Peace & Quiet
One if the most important things for any couple in their honeymoon is to have some much-deserved peace and quiet in order to enjoy the company of their other half.
is perfect in this respect because it is so couple-friendly. As mentioned in the intro to this post, Turks and Caicos is one of the lesser known Caribbean destinations, something which you could really benefit from.
In fact, Travellers Digest actually ranked Turks and Caicos Islands as the 10th most visited destination in the Caribbean in 2014 with just 354,000 visitors. This is a minuscule number when compared with the Dominican Republic which has over 4.3million visitors each year.
Plenty to Do
Peace and quiet is lovely, but if you are more of an outgoing couple and love to experience new things, what does Turks and Caicos offer?
Well, there’s actually lots to do. If you enjoy the sea then there is a number of picturesque boat trips and water sports for you to enjoy. For the more adventurous, there’s lots of snorkelling and diving available, for you to get close to some of the most beautiful and exotic sea life in the world.
If you prefer to spend time on land, you could visitbetter known to the locals as Iguana Island.
This tiny island is home to the indigenous Turks and Caicos Rock Iguanas who rule the whole of the island. After a short boat trip, you can walk the length of the island, getting up and close with this large lizards in their natural habitat.
