Comprised of some 40 islands and tiny cays, Turks and Caicos makes for an idyllic Caribbean vacation for families. Graced with aquamarine water and pure white sand, it’s a tropical trifecta of sun, sand and surf. Thanks to plentiful airlift and a location not too far southeast of Miami, it’s easy to reach from much of the United States and Canada.
Ambergris Cay is one of Turks and Caicos’ most scenic and unspoiled spots. This private island recently opened to overnight visitors seeking a vacation hideaway. Guests fly here on the resort’s small plane from the international airport in Providenciales. It’s a seamless connection, so you’ll arrive in Paradise in twenty minutes.
With only 10 freestanding beachfront suites, each with its own plunge pool, it’s exclusive yet blissfully non-pretentious. If your family is seeking a discrete haven, you’ve hit the jackpot.
Staying at all-inclusive Ambergris Cay is certainly not cheap, but kids age 12 and under won’t pay a single cent. All meals, activities and excursions are included when kids share their parent’s spacious suite. Children fly on the resort’s private plane for no additional charge, making an upscale family getaway here a true value.
