It feels like it has been a long time since we have been able to travel -- much less without restrictions! If you want to make the most of an upcoming holiday, have an unforgettable experience, and not worry about limitations, Turks and Caicos is calling! 

With travel restrictions easing and travelers eager to visit new places, Turks and Caicos is an ideal destination easier to experience than ever. Nestled in the Caribbean north of the Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos are among the most popular luxury destinations -- offering breathtaking beaches, exciting water activities, and extravagant resorts. The beautiful beaches and laid-back vibe are more accessible and incredibly easy to visit today, with no current entry requirements or additional medical coverage. 

But why Turks and Caicos? With many tropical destinations to choose from what makes this destination stand out?

Compared to other alluring beach vacations, what makes Turks and Caicos stand out is how seamless the entire experience is. Travelers can be sipping Mai Tais on the beach under three hours from New York City and just over an hour from Miami -- from any of the many direct flights into Providenciales, the most developed town on the island chain. The language is English, and their currency is USD, so there is no headache of confusing conversions and language barriers. All amenities are available at luxury resorts -- minimal local development makes the islands feel intimate and luxurious with no obtrusive shopping malls or oversaturated chain restaurants. Other beach destinations do not offer the ease, accessibility, or get-away-from-it-all feeling of Turks and Caicos.

Renowned as one of the top beaches in the world, Grace Bay is the ultimate sandy paradise, with water so vibrant and blue it is challenging to believe! Sitting on the beach with a drink or hopping on a jet ski -- the setting, scenery, and surroundings are surreal. There is no shortage of activities to consider when visiting; perhaps the most impressive is the third largest barrier reef in the world -- just minutes off the coast. This protected National Park offers unparalleled diversity and marine activity for divers and snorkelers to discover, making this one of the most exciting locations to visit. Take a jet ski out on crystal clear water to see a shipwreck, floating tiki bar, and explore remote white sandy beaches. Hop on a wind-powered Hobie Cat sailboat, or strap in and kite surf at Long Beach; with continuous light winds and shallow waters, Long Beach provides sought-after and perfect conditions for water activities year-round. Charter a private boat with a group and spend the day at dozens of remote, pristine beaches!

Two resorts to stay at in ideal locations are The Palms on Grace Bay and the Shore Club at the calm Long Beach. Each sister property offers something exceptional and is sure to impress. In the heart of Grace Bay, the Palms Resort is only steps from incredible restaurants and all the activities on the beach. The less developed, calmer Long Beach side offers an escape to the remote setting of the Shore Club to enjoy a serene ambiance, perfect for couples or families wanting a relaxing atmosphere. The overwhelming beauty of the ocean and white sandy beaches is prevalent wherever the traveler decides to go.

Consider Turks and Caicos for an unforgettable, unparalleled vacation. With remarkable luxury properties, some of the best beaches in the world, activities for all visitors, and overall ease of entry, Turks and Caicos is the perfect beach destination.
