A day trip to North Caicos

Why not see 3 islands on one trip? The ferry will take you to North Caicos and you can rent a car from Caribbean Crusin allowing you to drive to Middle Caicos. In 2008, Hurricane Ike almost completely destroyed the causeway. Although repairs haven been done you are able to see the strength of the hurricane by the rolled up pavement and concrete walls ripped up. It’s a day trip, you can stop at local beaches and swim but, pack refreshments and a lunch. It is like seeing a place time has forgotten! North Caicos has approximately 2500 people and Middle Caicos has approximately 500 people. You will be able to visit Middle Caicos, North Caicos, and experience a nice boat ride! The ferry itself is open to the air and seats approximately 30 people.

Lunch

A wonderful lunch can be had at the Bay Bistro on the beach. I personally enjoy the tuna salad, seared tuna with rubbed coffee on the edges, it’s to die for.

Cocktail Time

A late night cocktail? Try it at the Infinite Bar for a martini and see their 40 foot bar that stretches to the beach! They also have cozy little fires surrounded by comfortable cushioned chairs, very romantic!

Shell Picking at the Caicos Conch Farm

Conch shell picking on the south side of the island is fabulous. You can find these shells along the shore and approxiamately 10 feet in the water about 5 feet deep. It’s very easy picking and I’ve even found one with a live conch inside! Or explore the curious life cycle of the Caribbean Queen Conch from collection of the egg mass through hatching, grow-out and harvesting as an adult at the Caicos Conch Farm.

The “Hole”

A natural hole in the ground, 40 feet across and 80+feet deep… It’s not roped off or marked! So it’s not for the faint of heart.

Go celebrity spotting

Turks & Caicos is certainly a hot spot for the jet set crowd of Hollywood celebrities, rock stars and professional athletes. “A-Listers” like Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, Donna Karan, Keith Richards, Michael Douglas and others routinely visit their homes here, enjoying the anonymity and solitude of our islands. Big name jocks spotted recently include Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal and Roger Federer. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got hitched here, and Eva Longoria and Tony Parker honeymooned on our islands. Best places to spot them – Amanyara and Parrot Cay, but good luck getting close!

All for $50 USD return fare. To check out celebrity sightings on island, click HERE.

Snorkel the reef at Princess Alexandra National Park

Turks & Caicos is famous for its coral reef system, but you don’t have to be a scuba diver to enjoy it. You don’t even have to go out in a boat. The 6500 acre park is a protected area and one of the Caribbean’s best snorkeling spots. Because the reef sits on a shallow shelf surrounded by deep water, you may get to view turtles and even lobsters. This is a marked zone with species of coral identified by underwater signs. Best of all, it’s free and within a ten minute walk from the door of Satori at Grace Bay.

For more information, click HERE.

Visit the National Environmental Center

A fun and informative way to learn about the indigenous wildlife and environment of the Turks and Caicos. Located in the Lower Bight area, just across from the children’s park, the NEC has some interesting exhibits and events, as well as helpful staff who can answer your questions about just about anything related to the environment or the national park system in TCI. Admission is free and it’s open from 8AM to 4:30PM daily.
