so we just booked our honeymoon to turks & caicos for 3/18-3/22 wheeeeee! hehe 🙂 i was just wondering if any bees are also booking there and have any recommendations, tips, advice, suggestions, etc. for things to do, places to go, food to eat, and pretty much anything related to T&C. we are staying at the sands at grace bay. has anyone else stayed there? any good/bad experiences? is it close to other hotels? how is the food, customer service, water sports, etc.?
i am SOO excited but i just want to know and be prepared for what to expect! and…. there’s a 21 day policy so if people have not had good experiences… it’s not too late to change hotels haha.
please let me know! THANK YOU 😀

I’ve been to T&C but it’s been 10 years, so I don’t really have any concrete recommendations. The things I liked bester were snorkeling, parasailing, a day cruise during which we dove for conch and the captain made conch ceviche with what we caught, and seeing the iguanas on Salt Cay.
However, I just wanted to say that it was GORGEOUS and it’s a wonderful place to go for a honeymoon! Check Tripadvisor for reviews of the hotel.

Just commenting so I can follow this thread, hubby and I are interested in Turks and Caicos, but still keeping our options open.

Oooh, we’re stopping there on our cruise in about two weeks! I think we have horseback riding booked, and then probably some beach time.

I love Turks and Caicos. I recommend renting a skiff from Abuv It All. He’s located at Ocean Club East on the beach. Its a little boat that you take out by yourself. You can go snorkeling around a shipwreck and hang out on secluded beaches with no one ele around. He’ll give you a map and show you how far you can go. I also HIGHLY recommend Big Blue Unlimited for a snorkeling trip. I went with them on the Edge of the Banks tour and it was amazing. I got to snorkel with reef sharks!! So so cool. They also don’t take big crowds and I don’t think they serve alcohol. Most of the other snorkeling trips have loud music, big crowds and alcohol. For fine dining I suggest Bay Bistro. Make reservations for a stage table near the beach. I also LOVED Upstairs Bar and Grill. I had some damn good jerk chicken there. Somewhere Cafe was great for Mexican style food. One thing I must add is if you are a dog lover…stop in Animal House at Salt Mills Paza. It’s a rescue organization for the Potcake dogs on the island. They take donations and there are t-shirts and other things you can buy and the proceeds go to them. I love Turks and Caicos so much that I will never go to another Caribbean island. The beaches are unbeatable. Also, I suggest using TripAdvisor and searching Turks and Caicos. The forums are extremely helpful. If you have any question, let me know! I’ve been there 3 times 🙂

We went to T&C for Christmas 2011 with FI’s family and it was a ton of fun. I second booking something with Big Blue Unlimited. We did a paddle boarding tour and a full day eco tour with them.
We also went scuba diving with Dive Provo and they were fantastic. Not only was the diving amazing, but the dive instructors did a great job helping us out and were just wonderful people in general.
You should definitely stop by the Conch Shack (http://daconchshack.com). You’ll have to get a cab to go over there, but it is well worth it. I had the best fish tacos that I have ever had while we were there and the rum punch was delicious.
