Turks and Caicos Islands

Turks and Caicos is an archipelago in the Caribbean south of the Bahamas, and north of Haiti and the Dominican Repulic.  This delightful British Overseas Territory boasts the third-largest coral reefs in the world surrounded by translucent turquoise seas and powdery, white sand beaches.  At approximately 38 square miles, the island of Providenciales, referred to as "Provo" by locals, is the most visited and developed of the Turks and Caicos Islands.  On its northern side you'll find Grace Bay and its long stretches of white beaches together with its coral reefs, which can be explored during snorkeling and scuba diving sessions. This is also the place that hosts many high-class seafront resorts, as well as the majority of the island's restaurants, which uphold Caribbean culinary tradition and flavors. On the other end of the island, together with the beaches of Sapodilla Bay and Copper Jack, there's Chalk Sound, a natural lagoon that houses a national park famous for its clear-blue lake dotted with rocky islands.

Even though the weather in Providenciales is mild year-round, there are some factors to take into consideration when deciding when to visit.  Hurricane season lasts from June to September, and that's when some of the local establishments choose to close, but those who decide to stay open usually offer lower rates, especially on accommodation.  December to April feature the highest prices and the largest number of visitors, marking the start of the dry season.  April and May on the other hand have the lowest number of visitors with a low chance of rainfall, making it a sweet spot between the high and low seasons.
