Enjoy a romantic holiday for two in the Turks and Caicos Islands
The Turks and Caicos Islands for couples
The Caribbean is a popular holiday destination for loved-up couples and the Turks and Caicos Islands are no exception. In fact, their unspoilt nature and laidback atmosphere makes them the ideal spot to choose if you're looking for a chilled out getaway where you can just enjoy spending time in your partner's company.
One of the things that makes Turks and Caicos so great for romantic breaks is the number of uninhabited cays and islands that you can visit with your loved one. These are home to pristine sandy beaches where you're highly unlikely to see another soul - perfect if you just want to escape from everything.
There are also some wonderful luxury hotels, where you can look forward to the highest level of service amid opulent surroundings. Go all inclusive and you can make the most of the delicious food and refreshing drinks available from the restaurants and bars within your resort, too.
Romance in the Turks and Caicos
Providenciales is the most developed of the islands in the Turks and Caicos archipelago and is where you'll find the biggest range of hotels. However, couples looking for a bit more seclusion should look at what's on offer in North Caicos, which is known for its luxury resorts. Despite experiencing more development in recent years, it's still a quieter and beautiful alternative to the busier Providenciales.
If you enjoy going out for meals in stunning settings, Providenciales and Grand Turk are the best places to be based as you'll not only have access to all of the restaurants at your hotel, but also plenty more independent spots in and around the larger towns.
Grace Bay, in Providenciales, is the main tourist strip and boasts plenty of restaurants with stunning sea views. The island's Blue Haven Marina, meanwhile, is home to some of the newest and chicest restaurants and bars in Turks and Caicos.
On Grand Turk you can visit the restaurants and bars of the islands' capital Cockburn Town, or take an excursion to the uninhabited Gibbs Cay for a wonderful picnic on the pristine sands - it's just a short boat ride from Grand Turk.
Although a few of the islands in the Turks and Caicos have been developed for tourism, there are many more that are still completely unspoiled, with the majority of these also uninhabited. Couples who want to escape from everything and everyone should certainly go on a day trip (or two) to some of these beautiful spots.
There are sailing tours that take you between several of the deserted cays, giving you time to go ashore and explore, or to snorkel over the coral reefs teeming with life. If you stay in North Caicos or Middle Caicos, meanwhile, you'll have access to several stunning national parks.
If you're enthusiastic nature lovers, the Three Marys Cays Sanctuary and the Cottage Pond Nature Reserve on North Caicos are both worth exploring with your loved one. The former boasts outstanding snorkelling sites, while in the latter you can see a host of birdlife, including flamingos. On Middle Caicos, the Vine Point and Ocean Hole Nature Reserve, as well as the Conch Bar Caves National Park, are great places to spend a day enjoying the best of the Caribbean's natural scenery.
Wherever you are in Turks and Caicos you can always pack a picnic and head out for the day in search of breathtaking beaches, interesting wildlife and peaceful spots to sunbathe and just enjoy each other's company.
Stay in a luxury resort
You need to make sure your romantic holiday is suitably luxurious and the hotels in the Turks and Caicos can certainly deliver on this front. There are plenty of high-end establishments where you can stay in glamorous surroundings, with multiple swimming pools, full service spas and a selection of top-quality restaurants all on hand.
If you are planning a romantic holiday in the Turks and Caicos Islands for a special occasion - such as a honeymoon, birthday or anniversary - make sure you let the staff at your hotel know, as they will be able to arrange special little extras to give you a stay that you'll never forget.
Some of Turks and Caicos' most romantic luxury retreats include the Parrot Cay and COMO Shambhala Retreat, located in its own private uninhbaited island with over 1000 acres of uninhabited playground that you can have all to yourselves (and the other guests) for the duration of your holiday. Easily accessed via a half-hour boat ride from Providenciales, this resort could easily become your romantic paradise for a week or more.
Another great option for hopeless romantics in search of the perfect lovers' hideaway is Point Grace, a remotely located boutique hotel where every luxury is provided to ensure the most blissful of stays. The twelve miles of Grace Bay beach make it a truly idyllic spot to retreat to and enjoy the personalised service and what is said to be one of Providenciales' most romantic dinner spots.
