Providenciales ticks all the boxes, with gems like Grace Bay Beach, an iconic stretch of powdery white sand just steps from Leeward Settlement. The island is encircled by colorful coral reefs, which means the diving and snorkeling is practically otherworldly. Just offshore, you'll find underwater oases such as Coral Gardens and Smith's Reef.
