It’s easy to extend the romance of your wedding day when you’re overlooking the Caribbean sea from your private pool or enjoying the comfortable, salty air from your villa’s spacious balcony.

Grace Bay Beach, Providenciales
Grace Bay Beach is one of the most famous destinations among the Turks and Caicos islands, and it’s also one of the best places to enjoy an unforgettable day on the beach or in the water. Sitting on the north shore of Providenciales, the beach extends for 11 miles to the northeastern tip of this lover’s island. This beach never ceases to amaze visitors with its calm clean water and powder white sand. Coral Gardens and Smith’s Reef are favorite spots of coral reef making it an excellent destination for newlyweds who want to explore beneath the water’s surface while snorkeling or diving. It’s no wonder Grace Bay Beach is the World Travel Awards’ World’s Leading Beach Destination and the second best beach in the world, according to Trip Advisor.
Adventures on the High Seas
The waters surrounding the islands teem with dolphins, sea turtles, whales, and fish. These sea creatures provide honeymooners with an excellent opportunity to take a boat ride and come into close contact with some of the world’s most stunning sea creatures. A sunset sail with any of the private or public charters in these waters is a romantic experience that will be remembered long after your honeymoon has come to a close.
Divers will love that Turks and Caicos can be made even more adventurous with a number of world-famous dive locales. Brightly-colored corals, slithering green morays, lobsters, and urchins are just a few of the creatures you’ll find deep under the water’s surface. And those who simply want to sunbathe on a deserted beach will love that a number of tour companies are available to transport you to deserted islands. Spend your days lounging on untouched sand among some of the country’s most picture-perfect scenery, then retreat to the luxury and amenities of your resort or villa at night. Turks and Caicos is truly a dream destination.
Taylor Bay, Providenciales
When both of you feel like taking dip, which will happen often on the warm, sunny Turks and Caicos islands, you’ll love the hundreds of meters of shallow water that make Taylor Bay — on the island of Providenciales — the perfect place to swim safely. White sands fill the beach’s crescent shape, and the fascinating bright blue water makes starfish visible to shallow swimmers. The diversity and beauty of each of Turks and Caicos’ beaches makes everyday feel like an entirely new adventure and destination. Those who have already fallen in love with the islands will argue that there’s simply no place else like it in the world.
A list of reasons to visit Turks and Caicos, especially for a romantic honeymoon escape, could go on forever. However, the best way to experience the postcard-worthy beauty, adventure and sheer relaxation of this honeymoon destination is by seeing it for yourself. Book your honeymoon villa, stop stressing, and start looking forward to your big day and the unforgettable vacation that will follow shortly after.
