Luxury Locale: Turks and Caicos
The Turks and Caicos Islands--a picturesque wonder of white sands and azure ocean. Frequented by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates and Bruce Willis, these Caribbean islands are a vacation destination like no other. Catch a flight from Miami to reach this archipelago of about 40 islands, including: Povidenciales, North Caicos, Middle Caicos, East Caicos, South Caicos, West Caicos and Grand Turk.
Where To Stay
Treat yourself to a stay at Amanyara, an Aman Resort. Renowned luxury accommodations in the form of memorable Asian bungalows make this establishment perfect for those planning a romantic trip. Supplement your stay further by practicing yoga in nature or taking a dive in the crystal waters of private beaches.
Things to Do
Enjoy all that the Caribbean has to offer and do it all amongst amazing scenery and luxury resorts. Be sure to visit Grace Bay, the main beach in Providenciales, voted the most beautiful in the world by Condé Nast Traveler. For privacy, rent a 4x4 and go to Malcolm's Beach, the most isolated beach in “Provo” (the affectionate, local nickname for Providenciales).
Grand Turk is known for its great restaurants, shopping and nightlife. During the day, carve out some time to visit the National Museum of Turks & Caicos to get your fill of the nation’s cultural history.
What to Eat
A popular local dish is that of escargot. If the delicacy is not to your liking, several hotels offer the best of international cuisine. Our favorite? Dine at the divine Beach House, located in Grace Bay--you won’t regret it!
