The beauty of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) has attracted thousands of tourists consistently each year. The TCI’s beaches in particular, have garnered praise from every walk of life and has risen to international heights through social media platforms thanks to A-list celebrities (we’re looking at you Kylie Jenner). The TCI has accomplished some pretty great things this decade, lets take a look at how our beaches performed on a global scale.
Number One in the World
Not only has it gained worldwide acclaim but it has also been awarded Trip Advisor’s ‘World best Best beach‘ in 2016 and 2018. In both years, Grace Bay Beach beat out the likes of Brazil and Cuba and claimed its rightful spot on the top of Trip Advisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards Best Beaches .
Conde Nast placed the Turks and Caicos on the list of “The Most Beautiful Islands in the Caribbean”, highlighting Providenciales’ beautiful beaches and the colonial architecture in Cockburn Town on Grand Turk. The TCI also welcomed editorial acclaim this decade when the Caribbean Journal placed the TCI on a list of the “Best Islands in the Caribbean for Yachting, Sailing and Boating”. Unsurprisingly it was also placed on their list of the “50 Best Beaches in the Caribbean.”
World’s Leading Beach
Trip Advisor was not the only body to recognize the TCI this decade. The World Travel Awards also recognized the Turks and Caicos as a prime holiday destination awarding the destination, “Caribbean’s Leading Beach Destination” in 2015 and “World’s Leading Beach Destination” in 2014.
The 2010s have come to an end but we are sure that there are still bright things in the future for the Turks and Caicos Islands; as a tough contender for world leading beach destination in the decade to come.
