When considering the Turks and Caicos best vacations, the first thing that comes to mind is, of course, the many snorkeling and Scuba diving opportunities these islands have to offer. These islands boast of beautiful coral reefs with rare and unique black coral, along with the underwater delights of their submerged Black Forest. But there is so much more to be had in these exotic islands.

If you enjoy nature and wildlife, the French Cay area has a bird sanctuary that is well worth a visit. In fact, French Cay is uninhabited, making it the perfect sanctuary to all manner of wildlife. Horseback riding is another option. This is all the more appealing for being enjoyed on white sandy beaches and in the deep aqua surf of the Caribbean.

My Turks and Caicos best vacations have always included a cave tour. Middle Caicos has some spectacular rock formations that are well worth seeing. Then there are always mountain bikes to rent. Spend a day biking, picnicking and shopping.

If you happen to be there in March you can even enjoy whale watching as that is the migrating season for the majestic creatures.

Or … maybe you would prefer watching another type of creature common to Turks and Caicos – celebrities. Turks and Caicos is a popular destination with the Hollywood crowd. On any given day one might see such big names as Bruce Willis, Michael Douglas, or Shaquille O’Neal. Apparently Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner also find the island groupings of the Turks and Caicos best vacations destinations as well. Check out Parrot Cay as likely locations to spot a star.

Of course, water activities abound at the many island resorts, along with other beach activities, including beach bars to keep you well supplied with margaritas and massage therapists to guarantee you body is in full vacation mode.
