First time visit to Turks & Caicos -- would love advice on the island!!

Jump to last reply

For years, my daughter has been interested in going on a traditional Caribbean vacation -- the blue water, beach etc. But I have dragged her up mountains, into caves, through gorges, down fast-water rivers, and into many countries where you can't drink the water.

And now, it's her turn to have her Caribbean vacation.

After way too much research -- and running out of airplane options -- we are heading the West Bay Club on Grace Bay, and I'm a bit nervous, although very excited for the upcoming family time and relaxation.

If, during this vacation, I need to see things that are exotic and naturally wild -- and not shops and spas -- where should we go? If I feel the need to escape the hotel strip that I think we're staying on, what are the most beautiful, natural, wild sites on the island?

As for beaches, I've heard that Grace Bay is beautiful. Any others we should try?

And then snorkeling -- all of us have a lot to learn, and I can't wait! Any recommendations on a good place to learn and to see the most beautiful fish? Should I rent equipment, or does it pay to buy an inexpensive set online? Or even just the flippers?

And finally, please assure me that despite my slightly feral, tom-boyish ways -- and my disinterest in shopping -- I will love this place. I know the ocean is gorgeous, and being close to water -- and with people you adore -- is hard to beat. I know I will love it here -- but if I can do even one slightly adventuring, exotic thing, that would mean the world to me.

Thank you, travellers!
