There are plenty of opportunities to escape and unwind on a pristine beach or spend the day with a good book swaying in a hammock cooled by island breezes on Turks and Caicos. But if you are looking for adventure, excitement or a little romance, you have come to the right place. These fabulous islands offer vacationers the opportunity to participate in water sports, play a round of golf, get pampered at a world-class spa and win big at the hot new casino. And then there are the world-class restaurants, where you can dine in style in a lushly landscaped courtyard or beside the sea.
The shallow coral reefs around Turks and Caicos offer excellent snorkeling opportunities, especially at Smith’s Reef near Turtle Cove, Bight Reef and Malcolm Roads toward the Northwest Point.
If you are interested in becoming certified for SCUBA diving, take the Discover SCUBA course when you arrive. For those who are not quite ready for SCUBA diving, there is SNUBA diving where the air tank stays on the surface and you dive to only 20 feet.
An underwater area where the shallow waters around Turks and Caicos take a sudden drop and plunge from 60 feet to an amazing depth of 6,000 feet provides expert divers the opportunity for wall diving.

Save some time for rejuvenating spa treatments for health and beauty at one of the spas on the islands.
Take a leisurely guided trail ride along the beach at Long Bay.
Book a guided tour aboard a semi-submarine to see the creatures that make the coral reef their home, and stay perfectly dry in the process.
