The magazine’s Number One Caribbean destination for families is the Turks and Caicos Islands, and what a perfect choice it is. You can’t talk about Turks & Caicos without talking about Grace Bay, often ranked among the very best beaches in the world.
Parents Magazine says: “For beach fun, this network of islands — especially the popular Providenciales (aka Provo) — is unbeatable.”
TripAdvsior says: “White-sand beaches, calm clear water and a bountiful barrier reef make the Turks and Caicos island of Providenciales a hot spot for families, snorkelers and divers,” according to TripAdvisor. “Some call rock-free Grace Bay Beach the best in the world. For an unusual experience, divers can walk along the ocean floor at Smith’s Reef, where underwater signs describe the reef’s ecosystem. Additional destinations include Iguana Island (home of endangered rock iguanas), the country’s only golf course, art galleries and a casino.”
As you would expect, Providenciales has some amazing beach resorts, and while they can be pricey you will find affordable options as well. Be sure to check out the reviews and compare prices on TripAdvisor.
