The best way to get there.
Turks and Caicos is made up of 40 islands in the Atlantic Ocean and is a British Overseas Territory in the southeast of the Bahamas. Most major US airlines offer service to Providenciales International Airport (PLS), although many routes are seasonal. So unless you live in a major hub (New York, Miami, Atlanta), expect to connect.
A negative COVID-19 PCR test result and proof of travel insurance are required for entry to the Turks and Caicos Islands. The test must be taken within 3 days of travel. Children under 10 are excluded from this requirement. Check out the latest COVID-19 entry requirements here.
From the moment you’re picked up at the airport, the service at Beach Enclave is nearly perfect. In fact, it starts before it even happens. Before the trip, expect a video message from your butler as you await your arrival, with welcome remarks and a temperature rating so you know what to pack. When you walk through the doors the villa is immaculate and everyone from the butler to the boatmen on the beach are kind and helpful. The wrong side? Unfortunately, the noise. If you plan on getting the perfect peace, beware of loud neighbors or groups renting out their villas to party. If you are lucky and you are not, your stay will be 5 stars.
