Just a 90 minute flight from Miami, the Turks and Caicos Islands offer the ideal honeymoon getaway. Choose from a number of activities: sail on the Caribbean, lounge on the uncrowded beaches, go horseback riding, 18-hole championship golf at the Provo Golf Club, and much, much more.
A Turks and Caicos honeymoon provides the perfect lovers' escape for lovers with its romantic setting: soft, white beaches and crystal clear Caribbean water a dozen shades of turquoise. Turks and Caicos is so beautiful that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner chose to marry in the islands. Eva Longoria and Tony Parker spend their honeymoon there!
If you're considering a destination wedding, Turks and Caicos provides the perfect setting for both weddings and honeymoons. Get married and spend your honeymoon all in one place. Compared to other islands in the Caribbean, you get more bang for your buck, not to mention not dealing with the crowds!
The islands gives newlyweds a tropical escape from the winter doldrums. Adventurous couples can go scuba diving year round along some of the most extensive coral reefs in the world. The entire fleet of North Atlantic humpback whales migrate through the islands. Watching their acrobatics and listening to their underwater songs is an unforgettable experience.
Adventuring is not limited to the winter time either. Twelve months a year, visitors can take small cruises around the islands; dive for sand dollars and conch, an island delicacy; ride kayaks through the mangroves for sport or eco-tourism; and explore the bright colors of marine flora and fauna.
Activities do not end there. You can choose from deep-sea, reef, or bone fishing, sailing adventures, windsurfing, waterskiing, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving and beachcombing. 33 National Park Nature Reserves, sanctuaries, and areas of historical interest showcase this unspoiled wilderness and its indigenous plants and animals. Be sure not to miss the Turks and Caicos Iguana on Little Water Cay Nature Preserve; they're found somewhere else in the world.
But do not overlook some good old fashioned sun, surf, and sand because Condé Nast voted the twelve miles of Grace Bay Beach "best beach in the world." Once the sun goes down and you've worked up an appetite, over 50 restaurants on Provo alone cater to every appetite and palette. From local Caribbean dishes to Italian, French, Chinese, Persian, Thai, Intercontinental, and other cuisines, a Turks and Caicos honeymoon ensures a week or two in culinary paradise!
After dinner, you can check out the local music and dancing scene, or during the summer, you can catch the annual Music and Cultural Festival. The hard part is going home. One taste of "island time" and you're hooked.
