Ok, fine, I haven’t been everywhere in the world (yet), but seriously, the beach I went to in Turks & Caicos has to be at least in the top 3. Before we got to Turks & Caicos, my friends and I did a little bit of research and my one bestie in particular (who also planned the whole trip. Thank you, Meghann! I love you!) discovered that Grace Bay in Providenciales was on several “best beaches” lists. I’ve heard that a lot, so I didn’t get my hopes up too high, but even from the plane as we arrived in Turks & Caicos, I could tell that this place was special.
I’ve been to plenty of beaches in my life. Hell, I grew up in Florida, so I’m no stranger to white sand and blue water. But it’s completely different in Turks & Caicos. I was stunned when I got to our resort and saw our incredible view, but the best was yet to come. On Sunday, my friends and I had a boat day with Doug Camozzi and Wake to Wake TC. We had the option to do some water sports, but decided to just chill (and drink) instead. The day started off at Doug’s house where we hung out outside as we waited for the second boat to get there. The water was the brightest blue I’ve ever seen and once we were out on the boat, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was truly breathtaking.
Doug gave us a tour of the islands and told us about each little piece of land. My favorite, of course, was the one island that all the Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret and all the other bathing suit photo shoots take place. I mean, I don’t even know what to say. There are no words to describe the beauty. We of course had to have our own little photo shoot. I mean, can you blame us?!
After the quick pit stop, we went to another island to have lunch, dance, swim, and hang out. It was heavenly. After about an hour, we made our last stop at a shipwreck site where some (one) of us went snorkeling. We got back to the hotel by 3:30, so we had plenty of time to relax on the beach before we got ready for dinner. It was seriously the perfect day. Ahhh, can I go back already?!
