Since 1962, the Turks and Caicos islands have been a colony of the British Crown.
Until recently, these islands were quiet and remote. As years have gone by, they have become top beach and travel destinations.
The weather is balmy in Fall, Winter, and Spring. In the Summer months (besides being hurricane season) it gets hot but the constant trade wind leaves the day quite comfortable.
The salt ponds and marshes on Provo are an important habitat for about 170 species of migratory birds and waterfowl. The salinas are very important for the Provo eco-system.
I stayed on Grace Bay in Provo which is the most developed island of the Turks and Caicos. The beaches there are jaw dropping with sugary white sand surrounded by teal and turquoise waters.There is also a coral reef which makes snorkeling among the sea life a colorful and exciting adventure.
Relaxing, swimming, boating, fishing, and snorkeling are just a few of the activities available at the beaches. Usually, set these up at your hotel.
I stop at the little tents and shops for trinkets to bring home. I help the local economy and get to bring gifts home to the children.
Grace Bay has been voted THE BEST BEACH IN THE WORLD.
There are luxury hotels and condos, restaurants, shops, and spa experiences available on Provo.
Visit the Turks and Caicos. Their beauty and climate are perfect for a vacation, a rest, or more active pursuits.
