Turks and Caicos
The best beaches in the world
The Turks and Caicos are made up of 40 different islands only 8 of which are inhabited. The main tourist island is Providenciales (also referred to as Provo by the locals) which we will spend most of our time discovering here on this site. The Turks and Caicos are located about 550 miles south of Miami just south of the Bahamas chain of islands. The travel time from Miami is about 1.5 hours by airplane. The islands are technically located in the Atlantic Ocean, not the Caribbean Sea.
Providenciales, known as “Provo”, is the main tourist destination in the Turks and Caicos islands. Provo is home to Grace Bay Beach which is the most beautiful beach we have ever seen and commonly known as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Grace Bay Beach is part of a 12 mile stretch of beach along the northern coast of Provo making up the longest public beach in the world. The resorts along the beach are spread out so the beach feels uncrowded. There are times and places where you feel like you have the beach all to yourself.
