There is magic in it, Herman Melville wrote of the sea, in 1851, and as the following pages affirm, that is still emphatically the case. This years swimsuit extravaganza cruises the Caribbean Sea and the Indian Ocean, with frequent stops ashore to sample the lush life that goes with benevolent sun, sparkling waters and alluring attire.

Chartered Waters

The Caicos Sol is a 51-foot ketch that we chartered in Providenciales (called Provo by its inhabitants), the main island For tourism—such as it is—in the Caicos. There are three marinas on Providenciales with boats available for charter, and a new marina and resort are being built on Parrot Cay. Provo has become a favorite stop for yachtsmen traveling the sea route from Florida through the Turks and Caicos, and on to Hispaniola and beyond. As we discovered on the Caicos Sol, island-hopping by sailboat doesn't get much better than this—the Turks and Caicos comprise 30 islands and cays, only six of which are inbabited.
