Family Travel Magazine’s “Things to Do in Turks and Caicos with Kids”
Nothing is more beautiful than the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, and Turks and Caicos offers plenty of time near and in the water. Jodi Grundig from Family Travel Magazine offers tips on the best places to stay and activities in Providenciales. Grace Bay Beach is among the top of the must-sees on this list of activities and excursions. There are plenty of hotel options on the beach that make a day in the sand a breeze. You can have chairs and umbrellas set up and there is plenty of access to food and beverages. Just don’t forget to lather your kids up in sunscreen!
You can spark your child’s interest in island life and the various species found in Turks and Caicos by visiting the TCI Natural Resources Museum at the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs. The small museum offers free admission and features an impressive display of the islands. Read more about Jodi’s Carribean travels here.
Tear-Free Travel’s “Top 10 Things to Do in Turks and Caicos (with Kids!)”
Turks and Caicos promises plenty of adventures and activities for children and adults alike. Tear-Free Travel recommends taking a boat tour to go island hopping on the Turks and Caicos Cays. The excursion is friendly for children of all ages, including the very young, since there is not a lot of walking involved and Big Blue Unlimited keeps their boat tour groups relatively small. You also have the chance to snorkel and visit very cool underwater sites. Remember to pack plenty of snacks to keep your kids happy and full on the trip.
Children can also spend a few hours with iguanas on Little Water Cay. Also known as Iguana Island, this is a popular spot for families with kids of all ages. The whole family can splash around on the beach and watch the iguanas run around the island. Read more about Tear-Free Travel’s vacation to the island here.
Walking on Travels’ “Planning a Vacation in Turks and Caicos with Kids”
When the winter blues have you feeling down, pack up and take your family to the sunny islands of Turks and Caicos. Anna Julien from Walking on Travels recommends leaving your home during the colder months and then renting a car at one of the shops near the airport to make it easier to transport children in car seats for your stay. Be mindful that traffic lanes are reversed from the American style, so it may take some getting used to. Renting a car is the easiest way to get around the island, especially if you are staying in a house instead of at a resort.
While Grace Bay Beach is still a favorite among the best blogs for things to do with kids in Turks and Caicos, Anna recommends Sapodilla Bay near Chalk Sound. The bay is a beautiful spot that is also kid-friendly, with shallow water and plenty of water sports. Also, if your family enjoys being adventurous with the local cuisine, Las Brisas is a must for lunch or dinner! Read more of Anna’s advice here.
Travel with Joemama’s “Turks & Caicos”
Rounding out our list of the best blogs for things to do with kids in Turks and Caicos is a comprehensive guide from Joemama. For travelers on a cruise ship, you will likely stop in Grand Turk. If you are traveling by plane, you will fly into Providenciales. Either way, the views coming into the islands are incredible. In addition to Grace Bay Beach, Joemama recommends stopping by Taylor Beach. It is not the easiest beach to get to, but it is very secluded and offers a great, shallow place to play with your kids.
If you’re looking for somewhere to eat, stop by Da Conch Shack for seafood and tropical drinks. The restaurant is located on the beach, offering the best views while you eat. Kids can even watch local fishermen gather conch and chuck them on the beach before it is served to you. Read more about Joemama’s Carribean adventures here.
