Turks and Caicos, made up of 40 different cays and islands in the Caribbean, is home to some of the most exceptional beaches. It’s as if nature used a special palette for the exquisitely turquoise waters and the golden sand found throughout the archipelago. Grace Bay Beach on the island of Providenciales has been named TripAdvisor’s World’s Best Beach and won the World Travel Awards World’s Leading Beach Destination, among many other accolades. When it comes to where to stay in this paradise, the best Turks and Caicos resorts take advantage of the exceptional beauty of Turks and Caicos and excel when it comes to exceptional service.

Celebrities such as Bruce Willis and Keith Richards have homes here. There are too many celebrities to count who choose to vacation at the many luxury resorts in Turks and Caicos as well.

For outdoor pursuits, you can look forward to amazing scuba diving, paddleboarding, parasailing, fishing, horseback riding, windsurfing, cruising, and more. The weather is perfect for it too, at around 90 degrees throughout the year.

For the ideal Turks and Caicos getaway, here are some of the best resorts:
