While winter and spring are still considered the busiest seasons for travellers in the Carribbean, the idyllic islands of Turks and Caicos–and especially Provdienciales–have become popular destinations year-round. And while the reasons for flocking to tropical destinations in the winter are obvious, many visitors prefer to book their summer vacations in Turks and Caicos between June through September instead. Here are five key reasons why you might want to do the same:
Sunshine + Trade Winds = Bliss
Some like it hot! The average temperature in Turks and Caicos hovers between the mid and high 80s during the summer months. Despite the heat, visitors travelling from more desert climates, delight in Provo’s refreshing trade winds which serve as “nature’s air conditioner” by keeping our Caribbean climate from feeling too hot or stagnant. Plus, there are few things that feel “more summer vacation” than hearing the sounds of Turks and Caicos’ sea breezes blowing softly through the leaves of overhead palm trees: Ahhhhhh.
Longer Daylight Hours = More Time to Explore
Have you ever noticed that longer daylight hours seem to make your vacation feel longer? Visitors who stay in Turks and Caicos between June and Sept, enjoy a 6am – 6:30am sunrise and a 7:00 – 7:30pm sunset, giving summer vacationers approximately 2 extra hours of daylight to enjoy the sunshine and outdoor activities. So, whether you’re someone who wants to sleep-in without giving up too much of your day, or someone who wants to get as much beachtime in as possible, booking your summer vacation in Turks and Caicos gives you more sunshine and Caribbean bliss for your buck.
Postcard Beaches and Sunsets
Okay, we’ll admit that Turks and Caicos’ beaches and sunsets are pretty perfect year round. That said, if you’re looking for an epic summer vacation, the island of Providenciales offers something for everyone: from kicking back by the pool to snorkelling, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding on the beach. Hitting a nearby Happy Hour in time for sunset quickly becomes a favourite habit amongst locals and visitors.
Da Conch Shack, located within a 20 minute drive from the Venetian offers a great Happy Hour menu and vantage point for enjoying Caribbean sunsets, and Hemingway’s Restaurant, located within a short 6 minute drive from the Venetian offers an excellent dinner menu and beachfront patio seating that’s ideal for enjoying a splendid Caribbean sunset with your meal.
More Island to Yourself
While Providenciales has quickly become one of the most desirable vacation hotspots year-round, the summer months (representing low-season) means less tourists, quieter beaches and faster seating at the most popular bars and restaurants. If you’re seeking a laid back summer vacation that’s high on activities while being quiet and laid back as well, book your summer vacation in Providenciales between June and September.
Splurge While You Save
There’s yet another reason to visit Turks and Caicos in the summer months: you’ll have the opportunity to save while you splurge on an unforgettable, Caribbean dream vacation.
You’ll find more deals on flights and accommodations in Turks and Caicos between June through September. So, whether you’re seeking to stay within budget, extend your vacation, or have more money for dining, shopping and excursions, a summer vacation in Providenciales offers visitors great value.
But Wait, What About Hurricane Season?
It’s true that June through November is considered hurricane season in the Carribbean, but, thankfully, major hurricanes are relatively rare in Turks and Caicos (and are more likely to occur in mid-August through October) if at all.
Rest assured: In Turks and Caicos, consistent weather monitoring offers visitors and locals ample warning to evacuate ahead of any oncoming storms. You’re more likely to encounter a lot of sunshine broken up with a bit of rain or the occasional thunderstorm. It’s always good practice to purchase travel insurance in the event that you need to evacuate the destination you are visiting. While rarely required, doing so will give you peace of mind no matter where you go and when you visit.
