Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – Pier Space in Turks and Caicos

Tagged: ,

I remember first hearing about Turks and Caicos and assuming it was in the Middle East or Africa. My assumption at the time was probably based on my association of everything Turks-related to Turkey. I still don’t know how Turks and Caicos got its name (I guess a quick Google search would clear that up) but I’m glad I figured out it’s an island paradise a short flight away in the Caribbean. While I haven’t visited it yet, I’ve had...

One of the benefits of running the “Beach pic of the day” posts on my Facebook page is discovering new destinations to put on my travel wish list.

Tagged: ,

I’ve stated it on here before whenever an image from Antigua grabs the “beach pic of the week” throne – it’s comparable to the Maldives when it comes to the visual appeal of its beaches. Even though I didn’t identify this beach as being in Antigua, it didn’t matter to the people who follow my Facebook page. The beaches of Antigua impress regardless of whether or not they’re identified as such and with enough beaches for each day of...

Beach Thursday Pic of the Week – The Blues and Whites of the Maldives

Tagged: ,

If the Indian Ocean country of the Maldives had national colors beyond the red and green that dominate their flag, I would be tempted to guess that they would be blue and white. An archipelago nation consisting of 26 atolls which in turn contain more than 1000 coral islands, escaping the white sand and blue water is nearly impossible. Add to that the fact that the highest point on the island is just under eight feet high (with an...
