Best Reasons for a Turks and Caicos Winter Getaway
If escaping the winter winds and swapping boots for flip-flops sounds appealing, you’ll want to book a Turks and Caicos winter getaway this season.
Wonderful Water Awaits
Did you know that the water temperature in the Turks and Caicos Islands only changes a few degrees from the summer to winter months?
Water temperatures are 82 to 84 degrees (28-29 Celsius) in the summer with balmy 74 to 78 degrees (23-26 Celsius) even in the winter making it the perfect setting for dipping, diving, sailing or surfing. Most vacationers have a tough time trying to describe the color of water in the Turks and Caicos. The pristine quality is amazing, and the shades of blue depending on the observer’s perspective are stunning. The large barrier reef around the islands absorbs much of the wave activity and protects against pollution, debris, seaweed, rocks and other elements. Also a large part of the islands is a national reserve or park which means littering, vandalism, and harm to natural items is prohibited. Divers and snorkelers alike can explore this paradise and enjoy superb visibility.

The Turks and Caicos climate is very comfortable due to the constant trade wind. With consistent temperatures throughout the year averaging about 84 degrees Fahrenheit (29 degrees Celsius), it is an ideal destination spot for travelers. Temperatures might hit the mid 90’s high (35 degrees Celsius) during June to October but are still in the 80 to 84 range during November to May.

Sea, Sand and A Daily Serving of Sunshine
Vitamin D, important for maintaining healthy bones and teeth and a healthy immune system, is something our bodies synthesize from the sun’s rays. There’s plenty of “the sunshine vitamin” on tap in the Turks and Caicos to revitalize and refresh. And, with a multitude of beaches - Grace Bay Beach, Taylor Bay, and Long Bay among the finest - and soft powdery sand, there are lots of opportunities for healthy walking and beachcombing. Walking barefoot in the sand not only strengthens muscles but stimulates the nerve endings in the feet. Miles and miles of coastline provide opportunities to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, diving, parasailing and boating while inland mangrove areas afford wonderful kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding and nature exploration.

Summertime Eats in the Midst of Winter
It might be wintertime back home and the barbecue might be hidden under a tarp. But one of the best reasons for a Turks and Caicos winter getaway is that the islands are brimming with beach barbecues and outdoor feasting! Local resorts like The Palms Turks and Caicos offer suites with gourmet kitchens so that guests can enjoy in suite dining on their own private balcony overlooking the sea. Many provide superlative seaside restaurants or offer special private dining under a tiki-lit canopy.
How about a beach barbecue on a private cay? There are local excursions available whereby customers can cruise to spectacular sites like Half Moon Bay, Dellis Cay, and Pine Cay and enjoy an outdoor feast of authentic island fare. And not to be missed is the ever popular Island Fish Fry at Bight Beach (Children’s Park). Visitors can experience true Caicos culture at this island event featuring authentic dishes prepared by local vendors, live entertainment and cultural presentations. When travelers arrive on the shores of Turks and Caicos, they can leave the wintertime blues far behind them.
