Here at SJS we are a huge fan of Destination Weddings, with our next overseas event taking place on the beautiful tropical island of Turks and Caicos in the middle of the Caribbean. Destination weddings can also be a great opportunity for your guests to make a vacation out of your celebration, and its always great to have an excuse to fly to somewhere with an exotic climate!
If you are thinking of having a destination wedding, including a list of fun local activities on your wedding website or in your welcome letter can be very useful for your guests. Using our upcoming wedding in Turks for inspiration, here is our list of suggested activities to really enjoy a destination weekend to the fullest:
Most hotels and resorts will offer a wide selection of water sports, from jet skiing to windsurfing, all perfect for enjoying the crystal-clear waters of the island.
Take advantage of the turquoise ocean and explore the island by snorkeling in its reefs. At Smiths Reef and Blight Reef you can find a host of tropical sea creatures!
Explore the local markets and walk around the winding streets in search of local treasures. The weekly farmer’s market in Providenciales is particular popular with tourists for its collection of fresh produce and authentic artisanal crafts.
Explore the island on foot or by bicycle, allowing you to take in your historical surroundings. The island’s lighthouse for example, is a historic site currently protected by the National Trust.
Take a boat tour and witness the North Atlantic Humpback Whale in its natural habitat.
While on whale watching trip you will not only have the opportunity to encounter these amazing creatures by sight, you will also learn many interesting and educational facts.
Immerse yourself into the rhythm of this authentic Caribbean port. Use the Island Trams to get around, each equipped with local guides who will give you the knowledge, attention and personal service to make your trip a memorable one.
