Turks & Caicos

Although more and more celebrities are flocking to Turks & Caicos’ 40 mostly undeveloped, uninhabited islands and cays, its most important star gets there by sea; JoJo, one of only eight known dolphins to seek out the company of humans, is one of this destination’s “national treasures.” The most well-known of its treasures, however, is likely famous Grace Bay, whose long, white, powder-soft beach comprises part of the 230 total miles of shoreline that surrounds upscale resorts, gourmet restaurants, parks, and reserves.

Providenciales is where you’ll find this famous stretch, along with more than half of Turks & Caicos’ population, whose “belonger” statuses can be traced centuries back…but not always to the Spanish, French, and British who ruled the islands but never officially settled it. Wreck dives or an ambitious 22-mile-long submarine canyons are perfect for adventurers, while international anglers find their bliss above the surface as they score blue marlin, sailfish, wahoo, and in mangrove salt flats, wily bonefish

Good to Know
