Providenciales, just one of several gorgeous isles on the Turks and Caicos, exudes a warm, quiet beauty. The wonderful blue hues of the tropical waters surrounding every nook of this island are nearly crystalline and seem to sparkle like blue diamonds. The people are friendly, the conch is delicious, and the entire island is easy to explore. Grace Bay Beach and the Turtle Cove areas were surprisingly low key in April, with just the right of amount of tourist activity to allow for good people watching. Rent or hire a car (you'll be driving on the left side of the road, kinda tricky if it's your first time) so you can explore a bit, and try not to miss Chalk Sound or Sapodilla Bay.
