The most popular destination in the world for pleasure cruises is the Caribbean sea, it is called by many "heaven on earth". Over 2 million people each year sail to that area.
A typical cruise to the Caribbean lasts around a week and includes 3-5 ports, each one in a different island and 1-3 sea days. But there are routes in any possible length, starting from 3 night and up to 2 weeks according to every will and budget. Every cruise line has many routes in the Caribbean and that’s why you can choose from a cruise in a small and fancy yacht to a cruise in huge ships which contains over 3500 passengers each..
The popular website Trip Advisor and the prestigious tourist magazine Conde’ Nast and CNN chose in 2015 a beach called Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos as the most beautiful beach in the world. I have decided to check out the place from close and I was captivated by the magic of this tiny and charming Caribbean country who has long beaches with gentle and soft sand, decorated with palm trees and mainly calm, pure and clear water in an amazing turquoise color.
I searched on TripAdvisor where there are the best all-inclusive hotels, and to my surprise I have discovered that among the top ten all-inclusive hotels in the Caribbean, seven of them are located in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Most of the more modern all-inclusive hotels are located on the eastern edge of the country in a place called Punta Cana and the older ones are located in the north of the country in the area of Puerto Plata.
As proper for a busy touristic area, Punta Cana offers the tourists a variety of activities and tours from a variety of water activities such as paragliding, jet skiing, surfboarding, sailboats, sailing, snorkelling etc. to tours on land which includes guided safari tours to varied destinations in the forests, Rum and cigar factories, crop farm for cocoa, coffee and sugar cane, monkey farm and an action and adrenaline tours: buggy tours, horseback riding, rope park and zip lines. .
The most popular and touristic island in Turk and Caicos is Providenciales, which in short is called: “Provo” on which most of the international flight from the United State and Canada arrive. The most popular beach on this island is Grace Bay which is 12 miles long(!) and it gained every possible title (and rightly so), it’s located north of the island, on the side of the Atlantic Ocean. Along its entire length, there are many hotels, most of them are very impressive and prestigious, although you can find closer to the beach also a medium class hotels with more reasonable prices.
Grand Turk island is the capital of this tiny country -
Turks and Caicos.
The island is located at the southeastern tip of this island chain.
It is 11 km long and 2 km wide, home for 4,000 residents. The main town on the island is Cockburn in which there is the concentration of the government buildings in the country, a small number of hotels, the national museum of Turk and Caicos and a few wonderful beaches.
