Turks and Caicos
Turks and Caicos is famed for its stunning shores, but none more so than Grace Bay Beach. Located on the northeast coast of Providenciales and renowned for its pristine white sand and turquoise waters, it’s consistently ranked among the most beautiful beaches in the world (these are the top beach spots in the U.S.) and is the crown jewel of the island. Other notable spots to catch some rays and enjoy the sea are Bright Beach, Smith’s Reef, and Turtle Cove. If you’ve ever heard of Seven Mile Beach, that’s a reference to the uninterrupted stretch that runs from Leeward Beach (across Grace Bay Beach, Bright Beach, and Smith’s Reef) to Turtle Cove. Another major selling point of Turks and Caicos? The resorts (including this health-focused hotel). The Shore Club is all about thoughtful design and amazing amenities, including four outdoor pools—adults-only, family-friendly, central colonnade, and lap—spa, fitness center, daily yoga classes (find out the easy yoga poses you should do every day, even when you’re on vacation), and a complimentary Kids Club that will keep younger visitors entertained for hours. The Palms boasts beachfront access and a stunning infinity pool. And while kids (ages 12 and younger) keep busy with daily supervised activities at the Conch Kritters Club, parents can unwind with a pampering treatment at the 25,000-square-foot spa.
