Grace Bay Beach's Top 5 Reasons to Visit
By Charles Edwards
1. Great weather
During high season, the weather is just right in the TC and you'll never spend a rainy day at Grace Bay Beach. The trade winds ensure the temperature averages about 25 degrees Celsius. Since the most precipitation falls between early May and early August, the winter is the high season, when temperatures are moderate and sunny.
2. American currency
The American greenback is a familiar site in the trendy shops of Provo. You never have to worry about exchange rates or trying to figure out the local currency. You'll also save time before your trip - just load your suitcases into your car and head off to the airport after work!
3. The Turks and Caicos are relatively unexplored
There is nothing like the Turks and Caicos anywhere else in the Caribbean, or anywhere else in the world. While the islands offer first-class resorts with unsurpassed quality, elegance and sophistication, TC also offers access to the fragile, wonderous beauty of the Caribbean's rich natural history. Swim with dolphins and eagle rays, visit vast colonies of iguanas, explore limestone caves and prehistoric settlements. Everything can be reached from the front door of your condo, resort or hotel, often by boat, kayak or even by bicycle.
4. Neither too big nor too small
With an annual visitor population of less than 300,000 people, Grace Bay Beach is well off the beaten track, compared to more popular destinations in the West Indies that see millions of visitors. Only one island, Provo, is inhabited, so you can get around by car, or switch to sea kayaks and sailboats to explore all the different cays that make up the archipelago.
5. It's a home away from home
TC is home to a stable parliamentary democracy. There have never been any coups, and the responsible civic life is probably a result of the territory's membership in the British Commonwealth of former colonial possessions. People speak English, life is good, and it is safe to walk the streets.
