Turks and Caicos a Top Travel Destination

Google revealed that the Turks and Caicos ranked #7 in all top travel destinations searched globally and also #1 in the Caribbean. The recent news is exciting for the islands, and a big contributor to the ranking was the fact that many searchers were seeking a great beach as part of their vacation setting.

In 2016 Travel Advisor awarded Grace Bay Beach on Providenciales the honour of Best Beach in the World, and this news sent a significant ripple around the internet. And it’s no wonder! Boasting pristine azure waters and soft white powdery sand for miles, and offering a dizzying diversity of activities, Grace Bay Beach is a magnet for visitors.

Protected Shorelines and Marine Parks

Much of the coastline of Providenciales is a protected national park or reserve. Vandalism, littering, opens fires and damage from or removal of natural items are all prohibited. A barrier reef, the third largest in the world, surrounds the islands offering protection from pollution, debris, seaweed, rocks and factors that can cloud these waters.

It all adds up to the Turks and Caicos having unparalleled water clarity and natural beauty, and not surprisingly, the honour of being recognized as having the best beaches in the world.

For diving and snorkeling enthusiasts, the Turks and Caicos Islands are a wonderland. Shallow warm waters and easy access mean even the novice adventurer can enjoy paddling amidst colourful fish and exploring the marine world. Visitors are spoiled for choice when it comes to water activities including stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking, sailing, and windsurfing.
