Whims and Whatever
Temperatures in the Turks & Caicos Islands average 83 degrees Fahrenheit (20 C). During hotter months (September and October), temperatures can reach 90-95 F (33-35 C). Light, casual clothes are acceptable for all activities. Don't bring too many clothes! Instead, pack your snorkeling gear, books, binoculars for bird watching or stargazing and your fishing gear.
Other suggested items to bring:
* Sunscreen and a hat. The tropical sun will sneak up on you! Breezes from the ocean keep you so comfortable that you might forget about the sun's strength.
* Water shoes or old sneakers. Some sections of beach are rocky, and at low tide there are shell fragments in the water.
* Insect repellent. After rainy weather we do get some mosquitoes, and calmer days can bring sand flies. And if you are planning on treks through the bush, repellent is a must!
* Personal toiletries.
* Camera equipment. You don't want to miss those shots of clear blue water or a spectacular rainbow!
If a rainy day curtails your beach activities, we can furnish indoor games and puzzles as well as extra reading material.
