Located to the southeast of the Bahamas, the Turks & Caicos Islands are made up of eight major islands and numerous uninhabited smaller ones, known as 'cays'. They are renowned for their numerous white sandy beaches and pristine coral reefs. Providenciales, the largest island, is just over an hour's flight from Miami, and thanks to weekly flights from London, it's even more accessible for Brits, but
amazingly remains off the main Caribbean radar - for now. This blissfully overlooked corner of the Caribbean was placed firmly back on the map by the opening in 1998 of the excellent Parrot Cay. Further legitimacy arrived on the coat-tails of the opening of Amanyara in 2006. Development of luxury hotels here is slow, but in Turks it's all about quality, not quantity; the handful of luxury hotels here really are the cream of the crop. Spend days reclining on powder sand beaches, with a view of turquoise, azure and ultramarine ocean between your toes, indulging in the freshest seafood (especially with a lobster season that runs from August to April), and retreating to the spa for the rejuvenation of body and mind. Those of a more active disposition can try their hand at a range of watersports, from paddle boarding, kayaking, and even kitesurfing. Snorkelling and diving are also key activities for visitors here. The Turks & Caicos Islands has some exceptional diving, with more than 1,000 square miles of coral reef encircling the islands, excellent wall diving and a healthy marine environment.
