The Turks and Caicos Islands include 40 idyllic islands and cays, only 12 of which have a resident population. The tiny territory welcomes about a million visitors each year to its sandy shores, with most arriving on cruise ships. Being such a small territory, it's no surprise that the beautiful beaches and surrounding seas are the star attractions. Expect first-class scuba diving, sailing and fishing, among other activities.

If you can pull yourself away from amazing places like Grace Bay, you'll find some world-class golf courses, shops, spas and casinos catering to the high-class crowd. With limited amounts of restaurants and hotels, this is definitely an exclusive destination. Grab a rum punch and pick a patch of pristine white sand to enjoy.
