R&R trip – Turks & Caicos- what’s there to do?

So it’s our first time ever to be on a vacation with nothing really planned – we have a goal – but no plan. The goal is to be tanned, relaxed, and feeling like a lazy piece of goo by the time we head home.  That’s it.  Having said that, it doesn’t mean we don’t wonder what a week in Turks has to offer.

Our Island vacation started on Feb 20th, 2010 until Feb 27th, 2010.

Here’s what we ended up doing:


Day 1 Saturday Arrival @ airport in PM.  Resort taxi transfer.  Explore immediate area around the Veranda
Day 2 Sunday beach and pool lounge day
Day 3 Monday Excursion #1 – Turks & Caicos Dream Tour – Snorkelling, Conch Dive, Iguana Island
Day 4 Tuesday Clear bottom Kayaks around the bay (highly recommend!),  Beach walk, Snorkelling @ protective Reef, Pool, Casino
Day 5 Weds Rain day =(  recover from sun burns – read books, watched movies, resort gym
Day 6 Thursday Bike around the island – Salt Cay Mills and town shopping
Day 7 Friday Excursion #2 – private Kayak rental with Big Blue around Mangrove (highly recommend!), beach afternoon (creation of sand turtle!), hobo-cat sailing (highly recommend!), Friday night lounge at Gansevoort resort – DJ uncle EL!
Day 8 Saturday Departure day – last lounge around the resort and beach. Saying bye.
