It was the sunshine and sea breezes that drew you to Turks & Caicos, where connecting with the outdoors is at the forefront of everyday life?  To help inspire your connection with nature, here are four ways to best utilize your outdoor space, plus some truly amazing inspo from some of the area’s most incredible properties. 

Build a Floating Sun Deck - A dreamy, over-water sun deck will add usable square-footage to any waterfront home—use Wymara Villa 5107’s multi-purpose design for inspiration. This kind of deck can function as a dining terrace or serve as an open-air reading nook, or a romantic spot to share morning coffees and evening cocktails. 

Add a Pool (or Three) - Take a page out of 233 Long Bay Beach Club’s book— the home’s resort-style grounds center around an infinity-edge swimming pool that is visually stunning and provides a perfect cooldown, whether the moment calls for a quick toe-dip or a full cannonball.  The 18,000-square-foot estate is minutes from the island’s popular Long Bay Beach, but we’d make the case for staying home and soaking in this private oasis’ pool. 

Give Your Pool the Patio it Deserves - The spacious deck surrounding the pool at 16 Sugar Apple Lane in Providenciales creates ample space for lounging and entertaining. Nestled on Nelson’s Hill among lignum vitae and flamboyant royal poinciana trees, this property also showcases an open floor plan and spectacular views, with vistas extending across the prestigious Leeward development. 

Sunken Fire Pit - Is there any better way to close out a warm tropical day than relaxing outside over the ocean, sharing tales of your seafaring adventures? Yes there is–warm up by a sunken fire pit with friends under stars next to the beach. 5105 Turtle Tail Drive in Providenciales has the right idea—its oceanfront infinity-edge pool leads to a sunken fire pit and lounge, from which residents can enjoy unobstructed views of the Caicos Banks.
