Top 5 Instagrammable Spots on Turks and Caicos

By Megan Singleton on 23rd January, 2024

The Turks and Caicos Islands is one of the most sought-after tropical island destinations in the world. Its crystal-clear waters, sandy white beaches and vibrant colours are the perfect setup for those photos everyone dreams of. Whether you’re on a family vacation, a honeymoon or a girls’ trip, you’re bound to come across the most spectacular backdrops and photo opportunities to brighten up your feed. I have narrowed it down to the top 5 places I would recommend as the most instagrammable spots in the Turks and Caicos.


It comes as no surprise that one of the most Instagrammable spots on the Island is the world renowned, Grace Bay Beach. This long stretch of beach is by far the most popular and scenic beach in Providenciales and has continuously won awards over the years such as ‘World’s Leading Beach Destination’ and Trip Advisor’s ‘World’s Best Beaches’.

Grace Bay Beach is located on the northeast coast of Providenciales and is the main tourist hub for hotels, shops, and restaurants. Its turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and clear blue skies makes it the best spot on the island for those picture perfect photos. While in the area, you can also stop by the Potcake Place and adopt a puppy for the day! The Potcake Place is a dog rescue charity and adoption center based in the Turks & Caicos. Taking them out on walks and to the beach is completely free and they are sure to steal your heart. There’s nothing like playing with adorable puppies on beautiful Grace Bay Beach!


Next on my list is the beautiful Rock House Resort. The Rock House Resort is located near the highest point of Providenciales, overlooking the gorgeous waters on the north shore of the Island. Many of the resort’s rock wall features and architecture are inspired by villas in the south of France, Capri and the Mediterranean coast. This is my favourite place for sunset drinks and photos with friends or that special someone.

At night, the pier is lined with lights and lanterns to add to the picturesque vibe. During the day, the infinity pool sits 50 feet above sea level and blends right in with the colours of the ocean, making it another amazing Instagrammable location. Overall, this resort is filled with gorgeous views and backdrops that will have you taking photos all day long.


If there’s one must-have photo you need from your trip to Turks and Caicos, it’s at the famous La Famille Express Shipwreck. This abandoned shipwreck is arguably the most popular landmark in the Turks and Caicos and for a good reason. It is located in the middle of the ocean, about 2 miles off the shoreline of Long Bay Beach and is only accessible by boat or jet ski; one of my favourite tour operators offering excursions to the shipwreck is Mako Watersports.


The shipwreck is the #1 spot in the TCI for those who are seeking adventure and want some ‘off-the-grid’ Instagrammable photos. If you’re daring enough, you may want a selfie on top of the shipwreck or one as you’re jumping off the Ship. But, most people will want to ride around it and take some photos alongside it. Either way, the experience of seeing it up-close for the first time is something you will never forget!


Crest & Berry, a favoured acai and smoothie shop located in the heart of Grace Bay, is one of the trendiest spots on the island. The shop’s bright and colourful interior and decor is sure to brighten up anyone’s day. Evenbetter, you can bring your Potcake friends along with you! Crest & Berry is pet friendly and they even have a ‘Potcake’ bowl on their menu, made especially for them.

Crest & Berry’s space is relaxing, cozy and perfect on a hot summer’s day when you need toescape the heat and treat yourself to a cold and healthy snack. Don’t forget to pose for a photo with your acaibowl under their ‘Acai You Later’ sign before you leave!


Last but certainly not least, The Shore Club. This romantic and charming beachfront resort on Long Bay Beach is an Instagramer’s dream and is filled with the most aesthetic spots for the best vacation photos. The resort features stunning views of the vibrant turquoise waters from just about any angle. Some of my favourite spots on the property include the swinging chairs by the poolside rope bar, the yoga pavilion and the beach side pools that overlook Long Bay Beach.

Just about every inch of this place is gorgeous and lush. If you’re looking for somewhere secluded and uniquely different, you’ll be pleased to experience everything the Shore Club has to offer.

The Turks and Caicos Islands is one of the most beautiful vacation destinations in the world. In addition, its beauty, amazing weather, unique places and friendly people make it one of the most Instagrammable islands to visit. There are great photo opportunities at every corner of the island. From the beaches to the charming resorts, and exploring shipwrecks in the middle of the ocean, you’re sure to find something for everyone and you’ll leave with the most spectacular memories.
