Why you should consider a family adventure to North Caicos!

Turks and Caicos is a popular beach destination for romance as well as family adventures. We chose this location as a big family trip to celebrate my mom’s birthday. When I began to do our research I started reading about Provo, the main destination in Turks and Caicos, and of course – Grace Bay – while stunning – is a top beach destination, it is also quite expensive. We knew we wanted to rent a house right on the water and Airbnb and VRBO properties were thousands of dollars per night. So, I decided to extend our scope and found an incredible VRBO rental directly on the water, with a pool, large enough for eleven people on the island of North Caicos. What a dream!!!!!

Now, if you are looking for action – for all-inclusive, for tourists, for tons of restaurants, North Caicos and Middle Caicos are not the islands for you. But, if you are looking for hidden gems, quiet and peaceful serenity, perfect clear shallow turquoise water and a local vibe – then North Caicos and Middle Caicos will be your jam.

A short 25 minute boat taxi from the dock in Provo will take you to these charming islands. And, in a rental home you have much more flexibility and quiet than in a super touristy all-inclusive resort. The house manager will typically get your grocery list ahead of time and ensure that the house is ready to welcome you with everything you need during your stay!

Our rental property sat on Sandy Point Beach, North Caicos where we literally saw one or two people the entire week we were there! It was as if the beach/water was ours and only ours on our own private island! The house was stocked with kayaks, a pool, everything we needed for beach bonfires – we could walk the beach for miles and miles! We had a chef come twice and really amazing local food experiences in town. Even a super fun BBQ with live music where our kids danced and played instruments! We rented a car and drove to Middle Caicos with more beaches to explore, caves, a hidden pond with pink flamingos! (Our Wild Bum Guide has you covered with EVERYTHING you need to know). We went snorkeling with Captain D. We played games and watched movies. It was the perfect family time in the perfect setting. We still talk about the water!! It’s THAT beautiful.

Have you considered North or Middle Caicos for your next beach vacation? We highly recommend it!
