Eco-Adventures, Horseback Riding, Tours and More

When most people come to an island, their primary perception is simply, sun, sand and sea.  If you are always on the go and find it difficult just lounging around the resort pool another day, you’re probably in need of an island adventure.

The Turks and Caicos is indeed beautiful by nature and rich in history. Make sure to book a tour to one or more of the natural wonders and historical sites while visiting.


You don’t have to be an equestrian expert to navigate and enjoy this tour. Simply put, “horseback riding in the Turks and Caicos Island is the best ride you will ever have”.

The tour begins with the pairing of horse and rider; the expert guides consider your height, weight, experience, and sometimes personality when selecting your horse. Sounds like a dating service but it’s really designed to give the horse and rider an optimal ride.

Everyone receives a basic riding tutorial and soon after sets out on the trail. With operations in Long Bay Hills, Five Cays, and Blue Hills you won’t lack trails or scenery. All the trails end with horse and rider treading through the ocean shallows.

Be prepared to get a little wet as the most thrilling part of the trail goes right into the water…still atop your horse!

There are also many architecturally significant buildings in South Caicos, Salt Cay and Grand Turk, leftover from the salt trade Colonial past.

All of these attractions can be accessed and enjoyed on your own timetable. However many are only available upon request and require advanced booking, but are well worth it.

Tip: rent a 4-wheel drive and go exploring.


The Turks and Caicos golf and Country Club aka Provo Golf Club are considered to be one of the more challenging courses in the Caribbean. You may have to readjust your handicap to play this course, but thankfully the serene beautiful surroundings will keep you calm, focused, and determined through all 18 holes of play.

After a challenging round of play, enjoy a great meal and drinks with friends while cross-checking scorecards and exchanging wisecracks at Fairways Grill. Although your game may not always be consistent, the friendly service you come to expect at Fairway’s Grill and PGCC’s Pro Shop sure is.


The best way to get the lay of the islands and orient yourself to all of its landmarks is to buy an island tram ticket, get the guided tour, and get one big overview in one giant loop. It’s best to book tours and activities online ahead of time.

If you’re in Providenciales, contact Turks and Caicos Safari Tours and in Grand Turk, Island Trams Ltd. Both operators offer excellent, informative tours narrated by colorful guides. These tours are far less expensive than taking a taxi and will often stop at local bars and popular restaurants for snacks and refreshments.


It’s no secret anymore that the Turks and Caicos Islands have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We have consistently been ranked in the top 10 of almost every best beach competition in the last decade.

The beach they are referring to specifically is the spectacular 11 mile stretch of virgin white sand famously know as Grace Bay Beach. This stretch of sand has drawn visionary developers to build exquisite properties to match the splendor of their surroundings. Tourists flock to sunbath on these iconic shores and to splash in its pristine sea.

We invite you to explore the Turks and Caicos Islands to find your favorite beach and call it your own for the day.
