The Pristine Turks & Caicos Islands

The islands of Turks & Caicos are renowned for snorkeling, scuba diving and, of course, expansive white sand beaches. Yet, I spent several days -- based at the Grace Bay Club on Provo -- exploring plantation ruins, nature reserves, salt ponds and small restaurants, including one with an offshore conch crawl. Curiously, most visitors  never take the ferry to pristine Middle and North Caicos, just 30 minutes away. This short YouTube video slideshow provides a window into my travels.

I've heard so many wonderful things about Turks & Caicos - and would love to make it there sooner than later!

I went to Turks & Caicos many years ago and fell in love with it. The color of the water alone is unreal. So beautiful.

Beautiful photos. I've not been to Turks & Caicos, but my parents went years ago and loved it.

Hi Sheryl, I'd like to return since, like so many of my Caribbean trips, this one was way too short.

Hi Merr, I know. Everywhere I drove, I found astoundingly different colors.

Hi Jane, And, what's cool about it is that, beyond Provo, there are all these other islands that few people visit.
