The islands are surrounded by coral reefs, which have been in place for many years. If you plan to visit during hurricane season (June 1 to November), be sure to check the forecasts as your trip approaches.I recently visited the Turks and Caicos Islands for the annual Social Media on the Sand conference hosted by Beaches Resorts.

During my stay, I had the opportunity to explore the island and enjoy its sun, sand, luxury, and entertainment. The Turks and Caicos Islands are one of the safest countries in the Caribbean, with crime levels comparable to those of large cities in North America such as New York or Miami. Beaches Resorts requires visitors to go through a security booth for safety reasons, but there is still plenty of beautiful island to explore.When you stay at Beaches Resorts in the Turks and Caicos Islands, all meals and drinks (including alcoholic beverages) are included in the price of your stay. This means that you don't have to worry about spending a lot of money while visiting the beaches of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Although crime does occur on Providenciales, it is usually limited to thefts from tourists in the Bight and western Grace Bay areas, both on roads and beaches. The western half of Providenciales is less developed and features several national parks and beautiful beaches such as Northwest Point National Park, West Harbour Bluff, Frenchman's Creek, and Pigeon Pond Nature Reserve.If you're considering a visit to Beaches Resorts in the Turks and Caicos Islands, here are a few things to know before you go. There are no meal rotations or allocated restaurants or seats; however, there is a limit on how much you can eat. Smoking is not allowed in any of the restaurants, hotel rooms, or other indoor facilities at Beaches Resorts (or anywhere else in the Turks and Caicos Islands).

The resort features white sand beaches, kid-friendly dining options, pool bars, a fantastic gym, and other sports activities – making it one of my favorite beachfront resorts.Beaches Resorts was initially closed due to a fiscal dispute with the government of the Turks and Caicos Islands (26%), which is still ongoing. In North and Central Caicos, South Caicos, Salt Cay, and other smaller cays, crime against visitors is very rare. It's also nice not having to worry about carrying your wallet around or tipping while at the beach or pool.
