Turks and Caicos: 20 Things To Do & Explore!

Written by Kelsie Pearson

What's a better destination wedding than Turks and Caicos? Part of the Neso team traveled to Turks and Caicos to attend a wedding then extended the trip for some R&R. Of course we couldn't travel without packing our Neso!

Things To Do on North Caicos

We'll take you along for a few fun activities we were able to explore in Turks and Caicos. During our time we ventured out taking the ferry from Providenciales to North Caicos. It was more of an isolated island, and adventure awaited around every corner. We did a great hike at the end of the road on Crossing Place Trail, explored caves, and also loved walking on the sand at Whitby and Horse Stable beaches.

Things To Do on Providenciales

On Providenciales we loved the food options, especially the Fish Fry. The live music and delicious seafood and bbq ribs set the perfect picture for relaxing. We also took a boat ride where we saw colorful coral, a few sharks, and also witnessed the guide dive 60 feet in the water to bring up some conch shells.  

Things To Do on the Caicos Cays

You can take a boat cruise to the Caicos Cays which is a wonderful collection of small cays between Providenciales and North Caicos, and these beautiful islands offer miles of spectacular and deserted white sand beaches. Discover perfect turquoise waters, snorkeling reefs, and the indigenous Turks and Caicos Rock Iguanas.

Snorkeling in Turks and Caicos

Taking a snorkeling cruise is one of the most popular activities in Turks and Caicos. The reefs around the Turks and Caicos are amazing, offering a great amount of crystal-clear water, fish and sea animals, and healthy coral. Taking a boat snorkeling cruise often makes for a great underwater experience, as you won’t have to search for the reefs, and the offshore sites are often livelier that reefs near the beach. 

Things To Do on North and Middle Caicos

On the other side of the country, North and Middle Caicos hide an asset of landscapes and natural features, including caves, which is a National Trust site and the largest dry cave system in the Lucayan Archipelago, as well as secluded beaches and Loyalist historical ruins and cotton plantations.

We Fell in Love

The Turks & Caicos islands are truly the most beautiful islands that exist, and there’s something for everyone! Whether you’re seeking relaxation or action, are traveling as a couple or as a family, we are confident you’ll end up falling in love with Turks & Caicos like we did!
