Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got married there. Bruce Willis has a villa there (which you can rent). It’s the relaxation destination for stars like Julia Roberts, Janet Jackson, Jerry Seinfeld and Barbra Streisand, and a few hundred years ago it sourced its original, less tourist-friendly name Pirate Cay from such eye-patched pirate luminaries as Calico Jack Rackham and his badass female cohorts Mary Read and Anne Bonny. With a pedigree like that, how could you not want to visit the Turks & Caicos island destination Parrot Cay?
Where to stay:
Parrot Cay: It’s a location, it’s the name of the resort – it might be confusing at first, but you’ll forget all that when you’re greeted with rum punch and refreshing hand towels and driven straight to the resort. Prized for the privacy it offers to visitors both celebrity and simply well-heeled, this resort offers all you need in the way of honeymoon relaxation, just what you might need after ruling the wedding planning with a diamond-bedecked iron fist. Check out the Summer Honeymoon Package for a week of serenity and luxury in this celeb-magnet paradise.
What to do:
Get married: Unlike with some other wedding destinations, you can get a wedding permit at Parrot Cay after only 24 hours of being there. Follow in the steps of the Affleck-Garners and tie the knot at the water’s edge – gorgeous daughter several months later optional.
Hit the Shambhala Spa: Yoga, Pilates, massages, meditation, reflexology and ayurvedic therapies are only a few of the services offered at this spa voted the 2006 World’s Best Hotel Spa by Travel & Leisure. We favor the outdoor Jacuzzi garden and 540sq ft infinity pool, if you get tired of the crystal-clear ocean waters – but why not try all three?
What to wear:
NARS Parrot Cay Eyeliner: Match the sea green waters with a dramatic swoop of this eyeliner paired with honeymoon-appropriate lip gloss in Orgasm.
Tory Burch: Socialite Tory Burch’s matchless resort collections take you from the private beach to the cafe with minimal fuss and maximum comfort.
