Kitesurfing – Everything You Want to Know

Turks and Caicos is renowned as an excellent kiteboarding destination because the conditions are ideal for all levels of kiters. Beginners will find plenty of kiteboarding schools with certified instructors who can teach you the basics, while more experienced riders can seek out bigger waves and more challenging conditions. If you’re planning on doing some kiteboarding (also called Kitesurfing) in Turks and Caicos, this is everything you need to know.

What is Kiteboarding?

Kiteboarding as we know it today began when the French Legaignoux brothers patented an inflatable kite design in 1984. The sport exploded in popularity after that, and in 2001 the International Kiteboarding Organization was founded. Kiteboarding typically involves using a board with foot straps and a kite with a control bar and a harness attached to your waist. Top kiteboarding spots include Turks and Caicos, the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Spain, Hawaii and the Philippines.

Turks and Caicos Kiteboarding

There are quite a few places you can kiteboard in Turks and Caicos. Long Bay Beach on Providenciales is by far the most popular and one of the easiest to access. Most kitesurfing schools conduct lessons in the waters off Long Bay Beach. Other kiteboarding spots can be found off Middle Caicos, North Caicos and South Caicos.

What to Expect From Kiteboarding Lessons

A reputable kitesurfing school like Turks and Caicos Kiteboarding (TCK) will have instructors certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization. They can set you up with the proper equipment and teach you about setting up, safety and wind theory before getting you up in the water for your first ride. TCK also offers jet ski services to take you away from the crowds and help you out if you kite too far off course.

Kiteboarding vs Kitesurfing

Kiteboarding and kitesurfing are just two terms for the same sport. However, some people consider kitesurfing to be riding larger waves as opposed to gliding across flat water.

Kiteboarding Gear

Basic kiteboarding gear includes a board, a kite with a control bar, and a harness. The most common type of boards are twin tip boards, which can go in either direction, and the most common type of kites are Leading Edge Inflatable (LEI) kites. Most control bars have four lines and are attached to a harness that goes around your waist.

The Best Turks and Caicos Kiteboarding Spots

Providenciales is where you will find the best kiteboarding spots in Turks and Caicos, particularly at Long Bay Beach. Leeward Going Through and The Bight Beach are also decent kiteboarding spots, but better for experienced kiters because of the currents and boat traffic. Many people also take kiteboarding day trips to Bambarra Beach, Wild Cow Run and Cedar Point on Middle Caicos.

The Tides in Turks and Caicos 

Turks and Caicos has consistent tide and wind conditions nearly all year long, so from November to August you can expect breezy days with little to no ocean swells in locations around Providenciales.

The Benefits of Kitesurfing 

Kiteboarding offers a great workout because it activates all parts of the body including the core, arms and legs. Over time it can help improve your balance, flexibility and coordination. It can also be very therapeutic to be out on the water and taking in amazing scenery. Many people find that kiteboarding helps relieve stress and anxiety.

Why is Long Bay Beach Great for Kiteboarding?

Long Bay Beach gets consistent southeast winds most of the year and the water is calm and shallow with a sandy bottom, which is great for beginners. For experienced kiters, you can step out of the front door and be launching your kite seconds later. However, there is no lifeguard in front of the villa, so we highly encourage beginners and less experienced kiters to have an instructor from TCK come to help launch the kite and follow along with a jet ski in case pick-up is needed.

Yacht Charters in Turks and Caicos

Yacht Charters in Turks & Caicos

If you want to explore the Turks and Caicos islands in style, a yacht charter is the way to go. A luxury yacht charter allows you to discover deserted beaches, hidden coves and coral reefs teeming with tropical marine life, all while travelling in the utmost comfort. As you glide across the turquoise waters on your private yacht charter, you can indulge in refreshing beverages and snacks, take in incredible sights and stop to do fun activities like snorkelling, jet-skiing and whale watching. 

Where do Yacht Charters go in the Turks and Caicos Islands?

The great thing about a private charter is that you can customize your journey to include all the sights and activities you want to experience. Due to the shallow waters surrounding Long Bay Beach and Grace Bay Beach, Yacht charters depart from various Providenciales marinas nearby. Your captain and crew can then take you to uninhabited islands and cays to explore pristine beaches and caves and enjoy beach barbecues. They can also take you to exceptional diving and fishing spots.

Best Time of Year to Charter a Yacht 

The Turks and Caicos islands experience great weather almost all year round, so it’s possible to charter a yacht any time between the months of November and August. During this time, the days are mostly sunny and the waters are clear and calm. In September and October it tends to rain and there are fewer tourists on the islands, so some yacht charter companies take a break in the slow period.

What Can I Expect When on a Yacht Charter?

The opportunities for adventure are endless on a yacht charter. Most charter companies offer a range of activities for guests of all ages. Snorkelling is always popular because the waters around the islands are incredibly clear and the reefs are full of vibrant marine life like sea fans, parrotfish, lobsters and giant manta rays. Crew members can guide you to the most interesting reef formations and underwater sites.

You can also zip across the water on a Jet-ski or Sea-doo, propel yourself underwater with a handheld Seabob, or use an iBubble drone to film your diving excursions. Whether you’re into motorised water sports, scuba diving, deep water fishing or tracking wildlife like lizards, dolphins and tropical birds, your private yacht charter crew can help you plan an unforgettable journey at sea.

Even better, most charters provide top shelf beverages and food for half-day, full-day and multi-day cruises. They also have experienced crews to serve you and guide you around the islands. The staff size and inclusions will vary depending on the yacht.

Are Yachts All-inclusive?

Most charters include food and drinks and equipment for water sports. Some offer alcoholic beverages including wine, beer, rum punch and champagne. Each yacht charter is different, so the inclusions vary depending on which charter company you go with.

Top Reasons You Should Book a Private Yacht Charter

Unlike scheduled boat trips, luxury yacht charters are private, so you and your family and friends will have the whole boat to yourselves. In addition, yacht charters are customizable, so you can pick and choose where you want to go and what you want to do. Plus, you’ll get to cruise around the Turks and Caicos islands and cays in a gorgeous vessel outfitted with modern amenities designed with comfort and adventure in mind.

Best Time of Year to Charter a Boat 

The best time to charter a boat in Turks and Caicos is between November and August when the weather is pleasant and the waters are calm. This is also a great time to see dolphins and other interesting marine creatures. From late summer to early autumn it can be quite rainy and there are fewer visitors to the islands, so some boating companies temporarily close during this time.

Activities and Destinations When Sailing in Turks and Caicos 

Boat charter companies offer plenty of activities that are suitable for all ages.

Smith’s Reef and the Bight Reef are particularly good spots for snorkelling. Families will love visiting uninhabited cays and islands like Fort George Cay to do some beachcombing. This is also an ideal spot for a lavish beach BBQ with fresh seafood including local dishes like conch. Sunset cruises are incredibly romantic, which makes them a great option for couples.

Fishing Charters

Turks and Caicos is a popular destination with anglers because the fishing is excellent nearly all year round. Fishing boats that leave from Providenciales don’t have to travel far to find all manner of marine life from small bonefish to larger game fish like blue marlin and tuna.

Catamaran Charters in Turks and Caicos

Private Catamaran Charters in Turks and Caicos

One of the best ways to explore the Turks and Caicos islands is on a private catamaran charter. A luxury catamaran offers plenty of deck space, comfortable and chic interiors, and enough power to glide smoothly across the water to hidden bays and untouched islands. This is a great way for couples and families to spend quality time together out on the water and enjoy beach BBQs, sublime sunsets and exhilarating water sports.

Sunset Charters 

What could be more romantic than watching the sunset on the ocean while sipping cool drinks from the deck of a private catamaran? Most sunset catamaran cruises in Turks and Caicos include light bites and drinks so you can sip and snack as you take in the riot of colours that light up the sky as the sun sinks below the horizon. After the sun sets, you might be able to catch the shimmering green lights of the bioluminescent glow worms on the surface of the water.

Family Fun 

Private catamaran charters are perfect for families because the boats have plenty of space to spread out on the decks or in the air-conditioned interiors. Kids and adults alike will love snorkelling in the clear waters, beach hopping, and discovering interesting wildlife on pristine islands like lizards, sea turtles and herons. Take the whole family out for a fun-filled day at sea or give them the experience of a lifetime with a multi-day catamaran trip to hidden corners of Turks and Caicos.

Whether you want to explore underwater worlds or gather with friends and family over great food and drinks, these catamaran activities will keep you entertained for hours on end.

  • Dolphin Sightings 

The waters around the Turks and Caicos islands are home to many dolphins, the most famous of which is Jojo. This unique Atlantic bottlenose dolphin voluntarily interacts with people and he can often be found swimming in the waters off Grace Bay Beach and the eastern cays off Providenciales. You never know when you may come across Jojo or other playful dolphins on a catamaran trip.

  • Snorkeling Trips

Snorkeling is one of the most popular activities on a catamaran journey because the waters around Turks and Caicos are incredibly clear and filled with fascinating marine life. Your guide can take you to amazing reefs where you can see colourful sea fans, turtles, stingrays and fish including vibrant parrot fish and even reef sharks.

  • Beach BBQs 

A day out on the water wouldn’t be complete without a beach BBQ. Your luxury catamaran crew can arrange a fabulous BBQ feast on a stunning beach with delectable dishes like fresh seafood, grilled veggies and meats and cold drinks like fruit juices and rum punch.

Dock Your Yacht in Turks and Caicos

Where Can I Dock My Boat in Turks and Caicos?

Turks and Caicos is a boater’s dream due to its crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches and uninhabited cays. Boat owners will also be happy to know that the island of Providenciales has a number of state-of-the-art marinas to dock your boat. Rest assured that you and your vessel are in good hands. Many boat owners opt to dock their vessels and rent a private villa so they can enjoy the best of both worlds—exploring the waters by day and indulging in the utmost luxury and comfort in the evenings.

Marinas in Turks and Caicos 

If you’re planning on visiting Turks and Caicos via boat, Providenciales is the best place to dock your vessel because there are multiple marinas around the island. These are the best marinas where you can dock, store and service your boat. 

  • Blue Haven Marina 

Located on the northeastern side of Providenciales in the Leeward region, Blue Haven Marina is a full-service luxury marina with everything a yacht owner could ask for. The marina has 100 slips with floating docks that can house vessels up to 220 feet and another area with sheltered slips for smaller vessels. Boat owners have access to water and power utilities, a fuel station, customs and immigration services, restaurants, a convenience store and even a concierge who can arrange car rentals to your villa and other destinations around the island.

  • Turtle Cove Marina

Turtle Cove Marina is the largest and oldest marina on Providenciales. It is located in a sheltered bay on the north coast of the island and is accessed by an inlet. There are 100 slips here including 65 deep water slips that are available for short and long-term rental. The marina has a wide array of amenities including a fuel station, water and power utilities, bars and restaurants, a medical clinic, a fishing and tackle shop and a car rental service. Another draw is the boat ramp for trailer launching with parking for trailers nearby.

  • Caicos Marina & Boatyard

Caicos Marina sits on the southern shore of Providenciales in the Long Bay Beach area just a short drive from Triton Luxury Villa. If your vessel is in need of servicing or repairs, this is the place to go because they have certified technicians who can do hull repair, restorations, painting and more. There is also a shop where you can buy parts and supplies. The marina offers dockage and short-term and long-term storage with an indoor area that can house vessels up to 35 feet.

How Long Does it Take to go from Miami to Turks and Caicos by Boat? 

Turks and Caicos is about 550 miles southeast of Miami, so the duration of the boat trip really depends on the type of vessel you are travelling on, the speed you are travelling, and the wind and water conditions.

Triton Villa Is the Ideal Private Holiday Home for Boat Enthusiasts

While some boat owners don’t mind sleeping onboard their vessel while it’s docked in the marina, many more opt to rent a holiday home so they can stretch their legs and enjoy a bit of space and seclusion on land. Triton Luxury Villa is the perfect accommodation for boat owners visiting Turks and Caicos because the villa is just a short drive to some of Providenciales’ best marinas including Caicos Marina, Blue Haven Marina and Turtle Cove Marina. Unlike at a marina, guests of Triton will have direct access to a beautiful beach as well as seven spacious and chic bedrooms, two swimming pools, a hot tub, and an outdoor movie theater with a fire pit.

Note: Tritonluxuryvilla.com advises you to check with local officials for laws related to entry to the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Grace Bay Beach vs Long Bay Beach

Once home to just a few small fishing villages and a series of salt flats, Providenciales is now the jewel of Turks and Caicos with all manner of accommodation, dining and nightlife. Grace Bay Beach and Long Bay Beach are two of the most popular destinations on the island for their stunning white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and access to amenities. Yet while each offers endless opportunities for sun, sea and sand, there are quite a few differences between these holiday hotspots.

Where is Long Bay Beach?

Long Bay Beach is located on the southeast coast of Providenciales.

Where is Grace Bay Beach? 

Grace Bay Beach is located on the northeast coast of Providenciales.

Best for Relaxation: Long Bay Beach 

If you’re looking to indulge in some rest and relaxation, Long Bay Beach is your spot. This three-mile beach has soft sand that is fringed with palm trees and calm, shallow waters that are perfect for leisurely swims. Unlike Grace Bay Beach, there are very few hotels, restaurants or beach bars here, so the beach is usually blissfully crowd-free.

Best for Nightlife: Grace Bay 

Grace Bay is the most popular holiday destination on Providenciales, so it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of nightlife spots where you can party until the wee hours of the morning. Establishments range from easy-going pubs to bustling waterfront bars with patios and live music.

Long Bay Beach is Great for Families 

Families love Long Bay Beach for its peaceful atmosphere and calm, shallow waters that are perfect for little ones. The ocean floor is soft and sandy so kids can splash around without parents worrying about them hurting themselves on rocks or coral. Older kids and adults can try a variety of water sports including kiteboarding, kayaking and stand-up paddling. 

Long Bay is More Private than Grace Bay 

While Grace Bay Beach is lined with large hotels, Long Bay Beach is home to private residences and luxury villas. This gives the area a more secluded and exclusive feel. For example, Triton Luxury Villa offers the utmost privacy with two acres of lush landscaped grounds, seven spacious bedrooms, two swimming pools, and unobstructed views of the ocean. In addition, Triton offers direct access to the beach.

Distance from Triton Villa to Grace Bay 

Although Triton Luxury Villa seems like it’s a world away from bustling Grace Bay, it’s actually just a 10-minute drive from the front door of the villa to Grace Bay Beach.

Activities Available on Long Bay Beach vs Grace Bay 

Both Grace Bay Beach and Long Bay Beach offer typical beach activities like sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. However, Grace Bay Beach is more popular for motorised water sports like jet skiing, water skiing and boat trips for scuba diving or fishing. Grace Bay is also home to the Provo Golf Club. Long Bay Beach is famous for kiteboarding and horseback riding along the beach.

Long Bay Beach is Best for Kiteboarding 

Kiteboarders in the know head to Long Bay Beach to ride the waves because the area gets consistent trade winds year round. Another draw is the shallow water with a clear sandy bottom, which makes it great for beginner kiteboarders to learn the basics. There are also a number of kiteboarding schools that cater to beginner and advanced riders.

Grace Bay Top Restaurants 

Grace Bay is renowned for its excellent dining options that range from laid-back cafes to elegant fine dining restaurants. Some sublime dining venues include Coco Bistro for fresh local seafood served al fresco underneath palm trees, Grace’s Cottage for gourmet Caribbean cuisine in a sophisticated colonial setting, and Opus for fine wines and exquisite globally-inspired dishes.

Kiteboarding on Long Bay Beach

Kiteboarding is becoming increasingly popular in Turks and Caicos and around the world, and it’s easy to see why. This exhilarating water sport involves skimming across the water at high speeds propelled by just a kite, a board and the wind. If you’re looking to ride the waves in the Turks and Caicos, Long Bay Beach is the best kiteboarding spot for beginners and advanced kiteboarders alike.

What is Kiteboarding?

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Kiteboarding-Triton-Villa-Blog-Photo-1.jpg

Most people agree that modern kiteboarding began in the 1980s when the Lagaignoux brothers designed an inflatable kite that was meant to pull people across the water. Over the years, the kites and equipment have evolved into what we see today, which is essentially a large kite with bars attached to lines for steering, a harness that wraps around the waist, and a board for gliding across the water.

Where to Kiteboard in Turks and Caicos

The island of Providenciales is the most popular place for kiteboarding in Turks and Caicos because it has excellent wind and water conditions. However, you can also find some great areas to kiteboard off the coasts of North Caicos, Middle Caicos and South Caicos.

Kiteboarding Lessons

The majority of kiteboarding schools in Turks and Caicos are located on Long Bay Beach and they employ instructors certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO). A typical lesson lasts anywhere from one to three hours and includes equipment rental. Beginners will learn the basics, while advanced riders can set off on excursions to little-known kiteboarding destinations and learn new tricks.

Kiteboarding vs Kitesurfing

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Kiteboarding-Triton-Villa-Blog-Photo-2.jpg

Kiteboarding and kitesurfing are two different names for the same sport. Generally speaking, North Americans tend to use the term kiteboarding, while Europeans prefer the term kitesurfing.

What Gear do You Need to Kiteboard?

There are three essential pieces of gear you need to kiteboard: a kite, a board and a harness. Any kiteboarding school in Turks and Caicos can set you up with equipment that is suitable for your body type and skill level. Inflatable kites are the most common and they include a steering bar attached by lines and a harness. Most kiteboarders in Turks and Caicos also use twin-tip boards with foot straps. 

The Best Kiteboarding Spots in Turks and Caicos

Long Bay Beach on Providenciales is by far the best place to kiteboard in Turks and Caicos because it is suitable for all levels. Experienced riders can also try Grace Bay, Leeward Beach, and the barrier reef on the north side of Providenciales. Cedar Point and Wild Cow Run are popular kiteboarding spots on Middle Caicos. East Bay Beach on South Caicos also offers good wind conditions, as does Whitby Beach on North Caicos.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Kiteboarding-Triton-Villa-Blog-Photo-3.jpg

Turks and Caicos Tides 

Turks and Caicos experiences easterly trade winds most months, which makes it a great year-round kiteboarding destination. Under normal conditions, the tides do not change drastically, meaning you know what to expect on any given day out on the water.

Benefits of Kitesurfing 

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Kiteboarding-Triton-Villa-Blog-Photo-4.jpg

Kiting offers many benefits for the body and mind. Not only does it burn calories and tone the entire body, but it can also improve balance and coordination and help relieve stress by releasing endorphins. In addition, there is a large global kite boarding community, so it is easy to meet new people wherever you kiteboard. 

Why is Long Bay Beach Great for Kiteboarding?

Long Bay Beach is ideal for kiteboarding because the winds are consistent and it has clear, shallow water with a soft, sandy bottom. The shallow depth makes it easy to stand up if you fall down, which is great for beginners. Advanced riders love that the area is not crowded and there are few boats, so long, uninterrupted rides are possible. Long Bay Beach also has gorgeous holiday rentals like Triton Luxury Villa, which is just steps from the water, making it a kiteboarder’s dream accommodation.

Real Estate on Long Bay Beach : 101

With a beautiful stretch of pristine white sand, calm turquoise waters and a relaxed atmosphere, it’s no wonder that Long Bay Beach is such a popular spot to invest in property. Turks and Caicos is currently experiencing a very strong real estate market, and Long Bay Beach real estate in particular is highly sought after. Whether you’re looking to purchase a finished beachfront villa or home or buy a piece of land and build your dream home, there are plenty of real estate opportunities in the Long Bay Beach area.

Turks and Caicos Real Estate 

Turks and Caicos consists of 40 islands, of which eight are inhabited. These include Providenciales, Salt Cay, Grand Turk, North Caicos, South Caicos, East Caicos, West Caicos and Middle Caicos. The island of Providenciales is the most developed island in Turks and Caicos and this is where you’ll find the vast majority of real estate opportunities. That being said, the lesser developed islands also have vacant plots of land available as well as residential properties.

Triton’s Structural Design, Pools and Solar Power 

Triton Luxury Villa is a prime example of a high-end luxury vacation property along Long Bay Beach. This lavish seven-bedroom holiday home features modern tropical architecture and design with bright open spaces, eco-friendly solar panels, expansive landscaped grounds and two swimming pools including an ocean-facing glass-fronted main pool and an infinity-edge hot tub and pool. Additional facilities include an outdoor cinema with a fire pit, breezy cabanas, a gym, and tennis, bocce ball and basketball courts.

Buying Real Estate in Turks and Caicos 

Turks and Caicos is a British Overseas Territory that does not place restrictions on foreigners owning property. Individuals can purchase vacant plots of land as well as finished villas, single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses, duplexes and commercial properties. However, foreign corporations and trusts cannot own property in Turks and Caicos. 

Buying a Beachfront Home on Long Bay Beach 

Long Bay Beach is the ideal area to buy a beachfront home because it has not been as intensively developed as other areas on Providenciales such as Grace Bay. Therefore, you can still find many oceanfront properties and plots of land. Moreover, Long Bay Beach is the perfect locale for a family home or vacation property because it features a beautiful three-mile stretch of white sand, calm shallow waters and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities such as kiteboarding, kayaking and snorkelling.

Building a Home in Turks and Caicos 

If you’re planning on building a home in Turks and Caicos, there are a few steps you will need to take. First you will need to acquire planning permission and a building permit. Once you have those, you can begin working with an architect and project manager to construct your home or villa. When the project is completed you will need to have your home inspected and obtain an Occupancy Certificate before you can connect the utilities and move in.

How Much Does a Luxury Beachfront Home Cost in Turks and Caicos? 

The price of property in Turks and Caicos varies depending on a number of factors including the location, size of the land, and previous developments. Like anywhere in the world, beachfront property is more expensive than inland property. Real estate on Providenciales is typically more expensive than real estate on the other islands. However, no matter which island you decide to build on, you will have to pay taxes and fees including a stamp duty to the government that ranges from 0% (for properties under $25,000) to 10%. In addition, real estate agent fees range from 6% to 10%.
