Turks and Caicos

With some of the most clear blue waters and soft white sands in the West Indies, the beaches of the Turks and Caicos Islands are simple beauty at its finest. The British Overseas Territory consists of two groups of tropical islands — the larger Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks Islands — and is perfect for a remote getaway. 

While all the islands are sparsely populated, most travelers visit the Grace Bay area of the island of Providenciales (nicknamed "Provo" by locals) in the Caicos Islands, which is also where the most people live. But there are worthwhile attractions all over Providenciales. Close to the Provo airport, Grace Bay opens north into some of the Atlantic Ocean’s most magnificent and colorful coral reefs.
