Condé Nast Traveler recently released the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, with the Turks and Caicos Islands being voted the #3 Island in The Caribbean and The Atlantic with a rating of 87.98 – only 2.47 behind this year’s winner.

Over 240,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers rated their travel experiences across the globe to create a complete picture of the places they enjoyed visiting the most this year and are most looking forward to returning to. Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards are one of the longest-running and most prestigious recognitions of excellence in the travel industry.

“2022 has been incredible for the Turks and Caicos Islands’ tourism industry, and the latest acknowledgement from Condé Nast Traveler adds to our country’s growing list of impressive achievements for the year”, said Acting Director of Tourism Mary Lightbourne.

Tripadvisor then declared the Turks and Caicos Islands as the World’s Hottest Travel Destination for Fall 2022. The Turks and Caicos Islands beat out well-established and better-resourced tourism veterans, such as London, Amalfi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Bangkok, for the Number 1 spot – and shone as the sole representation of the Caribbean in the Top 15 of Tripadvisor’s list.

The World Travel Awards Grand Final Ceremony will be held on Friday, November 11, 2022, at Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. Votes can be cast for the Turks and Caicos Islands for the three World Travel Awards at www.worldtravelawards.com/vote.
