Beaches Turks and Caicos

Known world wide as “Provo”, Turks and Caicos is a Mecca for divers and beach lovers, and features a range of cozy dive hotels and world-class resorts. Restaurants are touted to be among the finest in the Caribbean for fresh seafood and inspired island cuisine.

Provo is also famous for its 12 mile, sugar white Grace Bay Beach and 18-hole championship golf course. Island activities to keep your blood pumping include: windsurfing, scuba diving on the world’s third largest reef system, deep-sea fishing, bone-fishing (or bottom-fishing) and snorkeling, just to name a few. For nighttime excitement, guests 18 and over can try their luck at the casino. And for a bird’s eye view of the island, you simply must try parasailing.

The Turks and Caicos Conch Farm, the only operation of its kind in the world, is located on Provo. You can also go down under and experience Provo’s awesome dive spots and underwater trails, reputed to be some of the best on earth. While enjoying the water, you may be joined by Jo-Jo, the Bottlenose wild Dolphin, for an exhilarating swim.

Cook Islands

Cook Islands

Only about 20,000 people are permanent residents across this collection of 15 islands spread over 90 square miles, but more than four times that many travel here each year to experience an authentic, refined, and joyful Polynesian culture.

The main island Rarotonga, is the most visited destination.

It’s also the largest and most populated, and the gateway to the rest of the islands. Jungles and volcanic landscapes characterize the inland, while the coasts are filled with palm-fringed, white-sand beaches.

An enormous reef encircles the island, forming a lagoon that extends several hundred yards for excellent snorkeling and swimming, particularly on the southeast shores.

Despite being the second most-visited of the Cook Islands, Aitutaki manages to remain nearly completely untouched by the modern world.

Gorgeous beaches, a spectacular turquoise lagoon, and the coral islets that dot its eastern coast entice travelers who conscientiously take only pictures, and leave only footprints.

The heart of Polynesia rewards visitors with an exquisite, exotic experience that remains largely unchanged, even amidst a growing popularity as a vacation destination.

Come to the Cook Islands and live differently for a while.

Some of our suggestions:

* Aitutaki Lagoon Resort & Spa

* Muri Beach Club

* Pacific Resort Rarotonga

* Sea Change Villas

Barbados

Barbados

Barbados invites you to wake up to the rhythm of the tropics and explore a paradise that’s naturally charming, alive with possibilities, and filled with warm and friendly souls who are always ready to greet you with a sincere smile.

Along one of the Caribbean’s most popular islands, Barbados is naturally charming and sophisticated, alive with possibilities and pulsing to the rhythm of the tropics.

Barbadians both venerate their home’s perfect climate and unparalleled natural beauty.

The small but bustling city of Bridgetown is one of the oldest capitals in the Caribbean, teeming with histric sites such as Heroes Square (with its statue of Lord Nelson) opposite the resorted Parliament Buildings, one of the hemisphere’s oldest synagogues, and the 19th-century St. Michael’s Cathedral.

Along with the shops on Swan Street, Roebuck Street, and Tudor Street, there is also a new cruise ship terminal sporting 30 duty-free shops.

Some of the Caribbean’s finest beaches lie along Barbados’ Gold Coast, where you’ll also find some of the most luxurious hotels in the northern hemisphere.

Spectacular stretches of fine coral sand highlight Paynes Bay, Brandon’s Beach, Paradise Beach, and Brighton Beach, all of which are open to the public.

Spectacular diving locations abound in barbados – there are more than two dozen ringing the island’s coasts, full of healthy sponges, thriving corals and plant life, and a kaleidoscope of colorful fish.

There is also an excellent collection of shipwrecks, with over 200 reported in Carlisle Bay alone! Most of the popular sites  are found along the west and southwest coasts. Action-oriented vacationers also dive into snorkeling, parasailing, surfing and windsurfing.

Bonaire

Bonaire

“Bon Bini!”

That’s how the warm, friendly people of tranquil Bonaire welcome you to a heavenly island so unspoiled that the pink flamingos outnumber the residents. It’s only one reason why over 55% of travelers to Bonaire are repeat visitors!

Bonaire is acclaimed worldwide as a spectacular dive site, thanks to being surrounded by a series of offshore reefs. (And it will retain that honor in the future, as the people and government of Bonaire have made the preservation of its marine environment a top priority.) There are beautiful undersea landscapes, ultra-clear waters, over 120 types of coral, numerous professional and experienced diving operators, and more than 120 “walk in” or boat dive sites around the island.

The diving here can be a transcendent adventure, but it’s only part of the Bonaire experience. Inland, a hike up Mt. Brandaris in Washington-Slagbaai National Park brings the reward of extraordinary views to the Caribbean’s curving horizon. You can also take a guided kayak or solar boat excursion through one of the few pristine mangrove systems remaining in the world. Bonaire’s year-round sunshine makes any of your nature or sports activities a real pleasure!

While it’s small, serene, and low-key, Bonaire does indeed offer dining, nightlife, and an arts scene. Dance the night away to live music in any number of nightclubs, mostly in the capital city of Kralendijk, on the ocean promenade, and, of course, in the beachfront resorts. And there are plenty of fine dining opportunities in and around Kralendijk, many showcasing Italian, Indonesian, Dutch, and local fare.

When you first come to Bonaire, you are a visitor, but when you leave, you leave as a friend.

Some of our suggestions:

* Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa

* Harbour Village Beach Club

The Red Center & Outback

The Red Center & Outback

Every year, millions of people visit Alice Springs to experience “the real Australia.” Everyone from backpackers to luxury travelers visits this town to walk among the native palm and gum trees, and to see first-hand one of the world’s most beautiful and most rugged terrains.

But no worries about having to rough it while in Alice Springs! The pioneer town has evolved into “the capital of the Outback”, a thoroughly modern small city (population about 25,000, 17% Aboriginal), with first-class resorts, excellent dining, golf, shopping and many art galleries.

While convenient and attractive, however, the modern amenities pale in comparison to the allure of the Outback, the Australian frontier that was once just as wild as the American West.

Visiting Ayer’s Rock is an absolute must when you’re in Alice Springs. Known as Uluru and considered sacred by the Aboriginal tribes that have inhabited the land for more 20,000 years, this massive sandstone formation is the Outback’s answer to the Grand Canyon.

Climbing the rock is a sacrilege to natives, so sign up for a base tour or trek to get a close-up look at the natural springs, caves, and ancient rock paintings.

Other nearby sites of interest include the sand dunes of the Simpson Desert, the hiking trails and ghost towns of the MacDonnell Range, and the domed rock formations of Kata Tjuta.

Central Australia lies in both the heart of Australia, and the hearts of Australians. It holds one of the most culturally significant icons of Aboriginal and Australian culture, Uluru/Ayers Rock, as well as the true Outback spirit that makes this country great.

Some of our suggestions:

*Crowne Plaza Alice Springs

* Aurora Alice Springs

* Voyages Alice Springs

* Voyages Longitude 131
