TURKS AND CAICOS HAS THE WORLD'S BEST BEACH
The tiny island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos has been voted the top beach destination in the world, according to the travel website TripAdvisor.
Tulum in Mexico, Myrtle Beach in South Carolina and Cape May, New Jersey, were the only North American destinations to make the Top 10.
"A number of factors make these beach destinations stand out as wonderful choices," said TripAdvisor spokesman Brooke Ferencsik.
"In addition to featuring remarkable stretches of sand, these hot spots offer a wide variety of quality hotels, restaurants and activities to accommodate virtually any vacation budget, and appeal to any traveller type."
Providenciales, which has experienced a boom in high-end resorts with total visitors tripling since the mid-1990s, was praised for its pristine white-sand beaches, calm, clear water and a healthy barrier reef that appeals to snorkellers and divers.
Rounding out the Top 10 were Boracay, in the Philippines, Aruba's Palm/Eagle beach, Negril in Jamaica, Grand Cayman's famous Seven Mile Beach, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and Santa Teresa in Costa Rica.
Ayia Napra in Cyprus was the toprated European beach destination, followed by Skiathos, Greece.
In the South Pacific, synonymous with exotic beach travel for many, Bora Bora topped the list.
