The Turks and Caicos Islands’ natural setting provides an excellent playground for both kids and parents! Beautiful wetland and coastal areas full of marine and birdlife, as well as thrilling water sports, complement the world-class beaches. Don’t be afraid to let your kids get out and explore the Turks & Caicos Islands. The atmosphere is safe and has so much to offer regarding kid-friendly Turks and Caicos activities. 

Kid-Friendly Beaches

All beaches in Turks and Caicos are free and open to the public, even though some of the beaches you’ll find may feel private. Don’t worry; you’re allowed to be there! In general, all of the beaches in Turks and Caicos are family-friendly, so finding a place to enjoy building sandcastles and catching some rays will be easy. Some of our favorite beaches include:

  • Grace Bay Beach 
  • Taylor Bay Beach
  • Long Bay Beach
  • Leeward Beach
  • The Bight
  • Chalk Sound

Enjoy Nature 

The natural beauty is abundant throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands, including the wildlife on land and sea! Both parents and kids will be blown away by the menagerie of colorful fish, turtles, stingrays, coral, and more between Bight Reef and Smith’s Reef. The Turks and Caicos Rock Iguanas are also an extraordinary sight to see, and these native creatures are critically endangered. Taking the kids on a trip to Iguana Island is sure to make special memories. Oh, and don’t forget about the flamingos! At the Flamingo Pond Overlook, you can witness tons of colorful West Indian flamingos in their natural habitat. 

Kid-Friendly Excursions with Caicos Dream Tours

Caicos Dream Tours is a top-rated company offering boat charters, snorkeling tours, and more in Providenciales with plenty of kid-friendly options for Turks and Caicos activities! 

Snorkeling

There are approximately 40 islands and cays in the Turks and Caicos Islands archipelago, of which only eight are inhabited. The islands of Providenciales and Grand Turk, which serve as the country’s capital, are the most popular tourist destinations.

Many snorkeling sites are scattered across the archipelago, many of which are readily accessible from the beach, especially in Providenciales and the surrounding islands. Whatever island you choose to stay on, you will be able to take boat excursions to snorkel on isolated reefs or deserted cays while on your vacation.

The Turks and Caicos snorkeling tour offered by Caicos Dream Tours will take you beach cruising around Grace Bay, snorkeling the Barrier Reef (the third biggest reef in the world! ), and more. Finally, a stop at beautiful Half Moon Bay, where you’ll get to see the Rock Iguanas up close and personal!
