Turks and Caicos Islands is one of the most exclusive destinations in the Caribbean, and for good reason. Clear turquoise waters, sparkling white sand, lovely weather and an absence of traffic lights and franchise food outlets provide visitors with a true escape from the realities of day-to-day living.
The Turks and Caicos Islands is located just 575 miles south of Miami, making it one of the most convenient and easiest to reach Caribbean vacation destinations. The British Overseas Territory consists of 40 islands, of which eight are inhabited.
Providenciales is the island where the international airport is located and where most Turks and Caicos hotels are situated on world-acclaimed Grace Bay Beach.
On both land and sea, there are lots of things to do here. On the water, visitors can sail, kayak, kite board, windsurf, and stand up paddleboard. Or, dive below the surface and explore the third largest barrier reef in the world.
Deep-sea fishing and bone fishing also lure anglers to try their skills in Turks and Caicos.
Once back on land, many luxury Turks and Caicos hotels offer exceptional culinary experiences at gourmet restaurants, spas and exclusive retail boutiques. The Alexandra Resort is the ideal place to stay and enjoy excellent dining and spa services, but no trip would be complete without exploring some of the great sites and activities on Providenciales and surrounding islands and cays.
Land based recreational activities include horseback riding with Provo Ponies, golfing at the championship Provo Golf Club, shopping at art galleries at Regent Village and Salt Mills Plaza, and taking day trips by ferry to other Turks and Caicos islands, such as North Caicos and Middle Caicos.
And of course time must be spent walking and relaxing on one of the top ranked beaches in the world, the 12-mile stretch of sugary white Grace Bay Beach that is never crowded and always tranquil. The Alexandra Resort occupies one of the most graceful stretches of Grace Bay Beach and invites you to visit Beautiful by Nature Turks and Caicos Islands.
