Spanning 40 islands in the Caribbean Sea, the nation of Turks & Caicos has long been a popular getaway destination for families. With its proximity to North America and nonstop flights from many cities in the United States, Turks & Caicos offers everything from family friendly resorts and sublime honeymoon experiences.
However, the best reason to choose this exotic Caribbean locale is for a girlfriends’ getaway. Simply pack your bikinis and your sense of adventure, grab your besties, and head off for the trip of a lifetime.
Where to Stay
Deciding what type of cocktail you and girlfriends will have is the easy part, but deciding where to stay might be a bit more difficult. With options ranging from budget hostels to high end resorts, the choices are varied and diverse.
However, to maximize the time spent with your friends, why not consider renting a house or villa for your stay? Private luxury Turks & Caicos vacation rentals are the best way to ensure that you and your friends have the space you need while still maintaining the option to spend quality time together in a stunning, oceanfront location.
What to Do
If lying on the beach with a fruity cocktail in your hand is the idea of bliss for you and your girlfriends then you’re in luck. If you’d like to do nothing more than that don’t worry; this is strictly judgement-free zone. However, if you have a sense of adventure Turks & Caicos has you covered.
Snorkeling, sailing, horseback riding, SCUBA diving, and parasailing are just a few of the activities you can find during your trip. Throw in a zip-line experience or a bird watching hike and you’ll be able to truly experience the tropical magic of these islands.
What to Eat
As one might expect Turks & Caicos is serious about their seafood, and with some of the freshest fish and shellfish available just offshore, it could be considered a crime not to indulge. Everything from snapper to grouper will be on the menu, plus a few ocean delicacies that you might not be familiar with.
You simply must try conch fritters, which are slices of the mollusk battered and fried. The delicate flavor and the variety of sauces served alongside will have you begging for more. Also, if your menu offers lionfish don’t hesitate. This invasive species is destroying native fish in the region, so killing them is a very good thing, and they taste delicious when grilled with butter.
Girlfriends’ getaways are the perfect way to reconnect with your friends, or to celebrate a special occasion, and Turks & Caicos is the perfect place for so many reasons. Gorgeous white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, and a variety of activities keep people coming back time after time. Why not visit this beautiful Caribbean island chain for your next girls’ trip and you’ll know why this destination is one of the most popular in the world.
