Hello, i’m getting married in May and we have NOT booked our honeymoon. We plan on going to Miami for part of our honeymoon but since we are so close we want to go to the Caribbean. I was thinking of going to Turks and Caicos because it’s very close to Miami but it doesn’t seem like there is much to do. A friend of mine suggested St. Martin so now i’m torn between St. Martin or Turks and Caicos. Has anyone been to either of these two islands?

I’ve been to St. Martin but I didn’t like it since there wasn’t much to do there. I was there for 7 days and I was ready to come home after 3 days there. I would just prolong your stay in Miami or try Turks and Caicos. Miami is so much fun and there is tons to do.

Our friends honeymooned at a Club Med in Turks & Caicos in October and loved it. He used to work for Club Med so it made T&C more affordable.
Have you priced out resorts for both destinations? Once we got into researching islands in the BVI, we discovered a preference for certain islands or styles of resorts. Maybe that will help you decide??

I have been to turks and caicos and there is not as much to do as other islands such at st. croix or jamaica- mtns, rain forest etc… but the beaches at turks and caicos are AMAZING. We did some really amazing snorkel and day cruises to private islands/beaches and it was great. Activity wise though turks is low key. We stayed next to the club med – staying there may add some activity…
If you want more to do look for an island that is not a ‘desert island’ as there will be more activities/sights on islands that have mountains and rainforest etc…

I’ve been to St Maarten as well, and there’s not a lot going on. Turks and Caicos is an interesting destination. It’s seems as though people either love it or hate it, with not a lot in between. There are some very swanky resorts there!
