3 Reasons to Book a Turks & Caicos Girlfriend Getaway

Women having fun on the beach in Providenciales Turks and Caicos

In our busy lives, the most meaningful gift we can give our friends is time. What better time to foster close friendships than vacation time on a white sandy beach? Here are 3 reasons why you and your entourage should choose the beautiful island of Providenciales (Provo for short), Turks and Caicos for an unforgettable girls getaway trip.

1) R & R is important….it’s science!

Rest and Recuperation

The Wisconsin Medical Journal published a five-year study of women in rural Wisconsin with results that showed that women who take vacations at least twice per year are “less likely to become tense, depressed, or tired, and are more satisfied with their marriages,” and that the “odds of marital satisfaction decreased as the frequency of vacations decreased.”

It can be hard to get time away, but the benefits of vacation time are well worth the effort. Time spent relaxing and having fun is rejuvenating and helps prevent burn-out from our lives back home. Turks and Caicos provides an ideal calm setting to gaze out at the turquoise sea, wander around the beaches as you feel the soft sand under your feet, and take in the brilliant night sky that is full of stars. Home to the #1 Ranked Beach in the World, Grace Bay Beach is full of exciting adventures like scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing just to name a few.

2) The Villa Experience:

Villa Positano

Staying at a villa or vacation rental house is ideal for a girlfriend getaway. Your own pool affords you and the ladies privacy (no need to share with the man with the hairy back at the hotel!) Your own kitchen allows you to prepare meals together. Making breakfast and lunch in the villa is a great way to save money and spend quality time together.  Spacious villas also provide ample space to find quiet time for reading, journaling and reflecting.

A great vacation rental choice for a girl’s trip is Villa Aquazure. This 4 bedroom villa is beachfront on a beautiful stretch of white sand and offers a spacious open/concept living/dining/kitchen area with turquoise views of the sea. With a maximum occupancy of 8, you can invite many friends for a great vacation!

3) Give Back:  Help a local charity like Potcake Place

A great way to spend an afternoon of your vacation is donating a little of your time to a local charity! If you’re a dog lover, a great option is Potcake Place, a wonderful local charity that seeks “To reduce the number of homeless potcakes on the island.” A potcake is a local dog to Turks and Caicos. As is common in many Caribbean islands, local dog populations can get out of hand with negligent spaying and neutering. Potcake Place needs volunteers to socialize puppies. You can drop by and take a puppy to the beach for some fun playing and cuddling. The center takes donations to help support their efforts. Another way to help is to coordinate your return trip home with an adoption; you could help take a puppy to a loving family in your home city!

Time with loved ones is a time well spent

We all need some time away from the kids, both for ourselves and to nurture our close friendships. As we’ve gotten married, had kids, pursued our careers, it’s gotten harder to meet up with those once-best friends along the way. That being said, if you care then you’ll put in the effort! Simple as that.  A rejuvenating girls trip can do wonders for our emotional health and we sure could use it sometimes.

We hope to welcome you and your friends to an wonderful Turks and Caicos vacation very soon!
