Attractions in Turks and Caicos Islands

Of the 40 Turks and Caicos Islands, people live on only eight of these islands. If you'd like to enjoy private beaches, it's possible to hire a boat and head over to one of the uninhabited islands like Fort George Cay. When visiting Salt Cay, pull out your binoculars for an afternoon of whale watching. If you decide to visit Grand Turk Island, horseback riding and parasailing are fun pastimes. Middle Caicos is the perfect island to visit if you'd like to hike through a few caves.

There are plenty of water activities to enjoy all over the islands. Snorkeling, kayaking and diving are some of the most popular activities. However, don't be afraid to try a water sport like kiteboarding, which is found on Grace Bay Beach and Long Bay Beach. Kiteboarding is similar to windsurfing in that a kite helps you jump and fly through the air and water. If you'd like to try an activity that's not as fast-paced, try stand-up paddle boarding. Available in Providenciales, stand-up paddle boarding is an excellent way to see the different creatures that live in shallow waters. Be prepared to come across turtles, conch and small sharks.
