3 Activities for Families in Turks and Caicos

Considering a Rock House cottage to become your family’s vacation home? Read on for three of our favorite family-friendly activities on the islands.

1. Search for sea creatures and pirate’s booty on Grace Bay Resorts’ Turks Treasure Hunt and Mermaid Encounter

This three-hour excursion brings families on a sailing adventure through open seas and deserted islands in search of the mystical Mermaid Bella and her buried treasure.

2. Play with puppies at Potcake Place

At adoption shelter Potcake Place in Providenciales, mixed-breed dogs found in Turks and Caicos and other Caribbean islands, commonly known as potcakes, are available for visitors to play with and take to the beach. Adoption is also available if you wish to take one home!

3. Try fresh seafood at the Island Fish Fry

Every Thursday at Provo’s Bight Park, over a dozen local food vendors set up shop alongside local musicians to create an evening of all things Turks and Caicos in a family-friendly setting. Must-try dishes include lobster mac and cheese, local island corn straight off the cob and the most famous of all, Turks and Caicos conch.
