Does anyone have advice for travel to Turks and Caicos? The all-inclusive resorts like Beaches look awesome, but I'm not sure about staying at a family-resort since it will be just two of us. But at all the other hotels, the prices of the food/activities will add up to around the price of the all-inclusive resort....Also, is Turks and Caicos the kind of island where you leave your hotel a lot? Like SXM? Or is it more of a "sit on the beach" island?

You can pretty much see the Island in the course of a day. Have you looked at the club med just down the beach from Beaches? I have stayed at both myself and either one is a good choice. The club med does not allow kids though.

Are all the beaches pretty much the same throughout the island? When I was at SXM, I was surprised by how varied the beaches were throughout the island.

Also, have you stayed at Ocean Club West?

I have not stayed at Ocean Club West. The beaches are all about the same, white wide and endless. The water is to die for that is for sure.

Here's the thing - Turks and Caicos is two very separate places: Providenciales, and All Other Islands. I am a big fan of the other islands...quieter, more relaxing, more peaceful, but also more rustic. That may be good or bad depending on what you want or desire.

Provo is great, by all means, and I assume that's where you will end up. Most, though not all, of the beaches are great. The beaches on the west and northwest can get a bit beat up by the constant wind and waves, but everywhere else has fantastic beaches.

Keep in mind it's just a very, very, very expensive place. A box of cereal can cost $6. We had to get a tiny bottle of medicine ($4 in the US), and it was $12. However, it's worth it...great place, friendly people, and beautiful scenery.

That's why I think the all-inclusive resorts might be a good value. Close call though.

I hope she's still there even after the hurricane that did in Grand Turk/Caicos several years ago. Right after you exit the port where the cruise ships dock right before the open air shopping area there is a massage hut. The maseusse is a tall athletic very attractive blonde long legged woman named Claire. I wish when I was there (cruise ship diverted port of call) I had the time to get a massage from her. She looked like she enjoyed her work, was strong, wore short atheltic shorts and was barefoot showing her extremely high arched footsies! Enjoy!

Not that you notice that sort of thing normally, right?

Check out the Grace Bay Club, one of the best resorts I've ever stayed at, it's fantastic! It also has the world's longest infinity bar, which is kind of cool. Great spa and beach, and fantastic concierge.
