Fun Family Activities in the Turks and Caicos Islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands have something for everyone. There’s a dizzying array of water activities, fascinating historical sites, and unique marine life. Mom can relax on the soft sandy beach, dad can tee off to some premier golf, and the kids can snorkel, go horseback riding, kayaking or just build sandcastles in the sun.

Looking for a fun experience to do together? You can board a catamaran or schooner and cruise the clear Caicos waters, view the underwater world in a glass-bottom vessel or snorkel around the reefs. You might even catch sight of Jo Jo bobbing in the waves!

Maybe you prefer an on-shore adventure. Celebrate island culture at the Island Fish Fry hosted at Bight Beach Children’s Park. Hop in a car and visit island sites like gorgeous Chalk Sound National Park or historic Sapodilla Bay.
