Awaiting the arrival of a child is a joyous and exciting time. However, preparing for the birth of a child can also make life hectic. A Turks and Caicos babymoon offers the perfect opportunity for couples to take a break from baby preparations and enjoy some relaxing time together. Here are some tips to decide when and where to travel.
According to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the safest time for a pregnant woman to travel is when they are between 18 to 24 weeks pregnant. Some practitioners suggest that healthy women who are enjoying a normal pregnancy can travel up to their 34th week.
As your belly grows and your wallet starts to shrink a bit from baby-related expenditures, it’s important to select a destination that is easy to reach and is easy on the wallet.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are one of the easiest destinations to reach in the Caribbean. Direct flights are available from major cities in Canada and the United States, and most flights are less than four hours in length.
The country’s major international airport is located on Providenciales, home to Grace Bay Beach, one of the top ranked beaches in the world, and some of the best luxury resorts in the Caribbean. While Turks and Caicos has long been considered an exclusive destination for the jet set, beachfront accommodations are made affordable at our own Alexandra Resort.
In addition to ease of access, moms-to-be will love the short drive from the airport to island resorts, and the peace of mind knowing that this babymoon-friendly destination offers safe drinking water, modern grocery stores, a state-of-the-art hospital, and a very low crime rate.
There are a number of activities suited to pregnant women on Providenciales. First and foremost is relaxing on Grace Bay Beach, which offers miles of fine sand beaches that are easy to walk on and which are graced by clear turquoise waters that invite swimming, sea kayaking and snorkeling.
Moms-to-be can also be pampered at a number of world class spas and no babymoon would be complete without a soothing massage. From the Alexandra’s own Spa Sanay, to the award winning spa at the Regent Palms Resort located next door to the Alexandra Resort, you can be treated to massages, facials, body treatments and more.
Culinary indulgences are also an important part of any trip to Turks and Caicos Islands, particularly since the destination is emerging as a foodie paradise. From locally caught grouper, lobster and mahi mahi to dishes prepared by internationally renowned chefs, you can satisfy all of your cravings while enjoying a babymoon in Turks and Caicos. Whether you choose the popular Mango Reef restaurant or other options like the critically acclaimed Beach House Restaurant, there are a wide array of excellent restaurants on Providenciales.
Your trip to Turks and Caicos will offer you the perfect locale to spend quality time with your partner. And if your partner can’t make the trip, don’t forget that moms, sisters and BFF’s make perfect travelling companions for babymoons too.
