If you picture your dream honeymoon as white sand beaches, turquoise oceans and palm tree-lined streets, look no further than Turks and Caicos. The Atlantic archipelago is located between the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. As you may have gathered, the destination is made up of two islands, the Turks Islands and the Caicos Islands and interestingly, both were part of Britain’s Jamaican colony until the early 1960s before gaining independence over a decade later. The TCI draws in tourists from around the world to simply enjoy a laid-back honeymoon that allows you to take on as little or as many sight-seeing trips or activities as you wish.
TCI’s sparkling oceans are what the islands are best known for, so you’ll find that most of the islands’ activities are based in and around the water. You’ll be spoiled for choice at the number of water sports on offer, including the likes of kayaking, snorkelling, surfing, sailing and so much more to keep you entertained throughout your visit. If you’d prefer to stay on land, you’ll discover a vast selection of daytime excursions and activities to try your hand at including horse riding along the beaches, playing golf at TCI’s world-famous golf club or even heading over to the Turks Head Brewery where you can taste a whole range of local beers and lagers.
If you’d like to get a feel for the islands’ history and culture, be sure to pay a trip to the Turks and Caicos National Museum, in which you can find interesting artefacts dating back over 1000 years. Alongside this, you may even be interested to visit Cockburn Town to witness 200-year-old colonial British architecture and ancient ruins that still stand proud to this very day.
