Best Hike in the Turks and Caicos: The Hole

We attended the Beaches Social Media on the Sand Conference

The Hole in the Turks and Caicos

One of our favorite things to do with our children when traveling is to go hiking. Getting close to nature while exploring is one of the best ways that children can fully connect their mind, body and soul with the place that they are visiting. When doing some research on our recent trip to the Turks & Caicos, I was having trouble finding any good hiking recommendations for young children on the island. It wasn’t until we arrived at the island that our server at Kalooki’s recommended taking them hiking to “The Hole.”

Finding The Hole was not as hard as we had expected, and parents can make the hike as long or as short as they want to depend on where they park their car along the dirt road. The Hole is located near Long Bay Beach off a long dirt road. We had gotten driving instructions from some locals on the island, and parked our car on the side of the road before hiking along the dirt road to this beautiful place on the island.

While we walked along the dirt road, we witnessed some of the most incredible views of Long Bay Beach, and luxury estates nestled in the tropical jungles surrounding the area. As we got closer to The Hole, there were various handmade signs pointing us in the right direction, and when we reached The Hole, we were amazed at the sight.

The Hole is a massive sinkhole in the middle of the island – but is much more than just a hole in the ground. Our children sat on the edge of the incredible wonder and admired all the beautiful colors in the rocks while left feeling curious about the actual depths of the hole. (I recommend parents keep their children at safe distance from the opening of the hole)

When looking for an easy hike with rewarding panoramic views of the island at the end, then I recommend planning an early morning hike to The Hole. Don’t forget to leave with plenty of bottled water, sunscreen, hats and leave early to avoid the high temperatures and humidity.
