How to Plan A Spring Break Vacation in Turks and Caicos
By early March, most of us are a little tired of winter. It's cold and slushy, and still too dark in the mornings. A spring break vacation in Turks and Caicos is the perfect way to liven things up.
Spend quality time with the people you love in a warm and sunny place. The sandy beaches of Turks and Caicos, impossibly turquoise waters and sunny weather are sure to cure your winter doldrums.
Celebrate Your Family on Grace Bay Beach
Providenciales is an island located in northwest Turks and Caicos. It's a fun and lively place to spend spring break with your family. Called “Provo” by the locals, Providenciales is an ideal place to spend spring break due to kid-friendly restaurants and activities.
Grace Bay beach is the main draw of the island, famous for its powdery white sands and impossibly turquoise waters. Whether simply walking across the beach or getting up close and personal with the island’s marine life, Grace Bay offers activities your entire family will enjoy!
For the Adventurous Family - Undersea Adventures
For the families looking to have the most amazing aquatic adventures, Grace Bay beach is happy to provide. The Coral Gardens is a fifteen-minute walk west from Grace Bay beach and is a popular place to go snorkelling. Swim amongst colourful tropical fish, bold and beautiful coral reefs, and maybe even a majestic turtle!
The waters around Coral Gardens are shallow enough for wading, allowing younger children to experience marine life themselves. Families, especially ones with small children, are advised to travel there by shuttle or by taxi.
For the Families Who Enjoy Relaxation
Providenciales is the perfect place for families who just want to soak up the sun and relax. Enjoy a family walk across Grace Bay beach, taking in the beauty one of the world’s most celebrated beaches.
Leeward beach, of the easternmost coast of the island, offers white sands and crystal blue waters without the large crowds. This is perfect for families who are looking to spend a little downtime on the beach in relative privacy.
Long Bay beach also offers a secluded beach experience. Enjoy horseback riding with your family into the shallow waters and beaches astride the “Provo Ponies”. If the urge for adventures strikes, enjoy wind sport such as kitesurfing, thanks to area’s trade winds.

The family dinner is an experience like no other. Spending quality time with your loved ones while enjoying a delicious meal is precious. If you and your family really enjoy eating together, then enjoying delicious Caribbean cuisine in Providenciales will make these moments even better.
