If you need a break from sun and sand, Cheshire Hall offers a change of scene. The plantation was built in the in the late 1700s by American colonists who remained loyal to Britain following the War of Independence. It is now run by the Turks and Caicos National Trust. You can wander around the grounds and visit buildings that bear testimony to the history of slavery in the islands. For an offbeat experience, head to the Caicos Conch Farm. It farms mollusks for the entire Bahamian Archipelago, with 30-minute guided tours offering a fascinating glimpse of the process.

Postcard-perfect moments on Grace Bay Beach

Grace Bay's biggest draw is its knockout beaches. Fringed by miles of powdery white sand, Grace Bay Beach is often crowned one of the best in the world.

The beach is dotted with upscale resorts, though its sheer size means finding a secluded patch of paradise is a cinch. Ocean lovers will be in their element, with a string of world-class dive sites to explore. Most are clustered along a 14-mile barrier reef on the north shore of Providenciales.
