Bermuda-Style Villas Located near Grace Bay Beach
For four years in a row, Grace Bay Beach was named the "World's Leading Beach" by the World Travel Awards, edging out famed destinations in Key West, South Beach, and the Italian coast. Set in the unspoiled tropical scenery of Turks and Caicos, Grace Bay Beach's 12 miles of white sand edge jade-colored water so bright it seems to glow. Just a three-minute walk from the beach, you can find Caribbean Paradise Inn, which prides itself in offering an intimate, relaxing experience amid this gorgeous landscape.
The inn boasts that it's the only owner-operated hotel on the island, and to that end, the focus is on personalized hospitality. Feel free to visit the onsite activities desk, where a concierge can help you to plan out the day's adventures, whether you're booking a day trip on a catamaran or renting snorkel gear.
Tropical gardens lined with greenery and flowering plants surround the inn's property; the vegetation is so thick that it practically walls in the open walkways. Each morning, you can stop by the garden for a complimentary continental breakfast with fresh fruit served in the garden.
Downstairs is Coyaba Restaurant, a gazebo-style restaurant that serves Caribbean cuisine in a romantic garden. Try dishes such as coconut tempura shrimp slathered in gingered Barceló honey rum and sweet and sour teriyaki sauces.
Two Bermuda-style villas house the 17 guest rooms, each individually decorated in a cheerful, tropical theme and cooled by fluttering hummingbirds.
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands: Famed Beach with 350 Days of Sunshine Each Year
Providenciales—or "Provo," as the locals call it—is the largest tourist destination on the 40 islands and cays that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands. The glowing water, white sand beaches, and 350 days of sunshine each year make it a popular tropical destination.
Turks and Caicos is also set up for snorkeling and scuba. A natural reef keeps waves and debris away, leaving a smooth surface. The water is also warm year-round and has outstanding visibility, so it's easy to spot the tropical fish, sea turtles, and enormous walls of coral. Brave snorkelers and scuba divers can head to Northwest Point, where it's common to see reef and hammerhead sharks mingling with rays.
