Destination: Turks and Caicos Islands

Here's a little known but maybe soon to be discovered Caribbean treasure.

Miles of sparkling white sand beaches with serene waters and the brightest shades of blue ring the Turks and Caicos Islands. Beaches and coves are so deserted you will feel as if you have an island retreat all to yourself.

Southeast of the Bahamas, the chain consists of 40 islands and cays, eight of which are inhabited, and the others are accessible by boat. The two principal groups, each surrounded by a continuous coral reef, are the Caicos Islands (West, Providencales or Provo, North, Middle, East and South) and the Turks islands of Grand Turk and Salt Cay, which lie to the southeast and are separated from Caicos by a 22-mile-wide channel.

World class hotels, spas, and restaurants await, as do our famous stretches of uncrowded beaches and vibrant coral reefs. On land or below the water, you'll relax in the unique serenity, hospitality and beauty of the islands.

Home to the Best Beach in the World, breathtaking hues from inviting waters, and legendary diving, snorkeling and fishing, the
Turks & Caicos Islands beckon you to an undiscovered Caribbean. Travel to the Turks and Caicos is easy and efficient. It is just a short flight from the east coast of the US.

I really enjoyed my time at the Beaches resort T & C!

Happy travels!
