Exclusive and secluded getaway
If you are looking for an exclusive and secluded getaway, the Turks and Caicos Islands are a hot spot for honeymooners seeking a locale where time has stood still. Salt Cay in Turks and Caicos was a pillar of the salt industry which was a mainstay in the Bermudan economy. As such, Salt Cay in Turks and Caicos has become declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Another interesting fact about Turks and Caicos is that it is one of the safest places to visit worldwide. This is a community with only a few unarmed policemen on duty, as there is a strong sense of law and order on these islands.
Best Time to GoWhen it comes to tropical climates, it doesnít get any more beautiful than Turks and Caicos. Average temperatures between June and October range in the high eighties (Fahrenheit) to the low eighties between November and May. Water temperature is never lower than 73 Fahrenheit and the cross breeze of the trade winds keep the islands comfortable. One of the most exciting things about this area is that Turks and Caicos experiences approximately 350 days of sun annually.
What to DoThere are a myriad of activities to see and do when you are in Turks and Caicos. If you are seeking a quiet getaway with just some time on the beach, you will not be disappointed. If you are an adventure lover, you may enjoy exploring some of the most exotic and stunning coral reefs in the world. As well, this is a diverís delight if you are looking for some serious underwater fun. If you arenít so adventurous, you will enjoy the herd of 2500 Humpback whales that pass the shores during their annual migration between December and April. If you go underwater in select areas, you can hear the whales sing, and do not be surprised if you encounter a dolphin or two on your dive, an experience you would have to pay for in other locales such as Hawaii. If you like birds, the inland marshes offer superior feeding locals for birds such as blue herons, pelicans, egrets, flamingos, and osprey.
