The beautiful islands of Turks and Caicos benefit from not only the natural phenomenon of the whitest sand beaches and the most turquoise of oceans lapping them, but also the highest of hotel standards thanks to its strong American influence, and the A-listers that visit from there. It's only 90 minutes by plane from Miami but also has direct flights from the UK. Only eight of these 40 beautiful islands are inhabited so there is plenty to explore if you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger and cocktail on your luxury holiday. Provodenciales is the most developed of the islands with one of the prettiest golf courses in the Caribbean. Turks and Caicos is home to one of the largest coral reefs, boasting over 250 miles to explore, and there is also good game fishing and even whale watching if you travel between December and April. The water excursions are endless, which make for a perfect family holiday if your plan ahead and purchase a travel package.
