While high end shopping isn’t the reason most come to Turks and Caicos, the islands do offer some great buys. There’s no sales or luxury tax here, and at many locations, items like jewelry, cameras, perfumes, handbags, cigars and liquor are available to U.S. and Canadian residents duty-free. Forbes Travel Guide editors say the best shopping is in the Grace Bay area of Providenciales. Check out Caicos Café Plaza, Ports of Call Plaza and Regent Village Shopping Mall, but plan to spend most of your shopping time at The Salt Mills Plaza. A local favorite, it’s home to everything from designer handbags and shoes to locally made glasswork, ceramics, paintings and straw items.
