This private island resort, part of the COMO Hotels and Resorts group, consists of a mile-long beachfront and nearly 1,000 acres of land. Just about 600 miles southeast of Miami, the island is reachable only by a 40 minute boat ride from Providenciales (Turks and Caicos’ main island). Parrot Cay holds just 61 rooms, which makes it ideal for those who want to avoid the tourist hotspots. Turks and Caicos also contains some of the best diving establishments in the world. If that’s not enough to quench your thirst for a nautical adventure, you can take part in windsurfing, fishing, snorkeling, or kayaking.

While the island is known for its picturesque white sand beaches and underwater excursions, many people may just go for the Shambhala retreat spa. Specializing in proactive holistic wellness, the spa integrates ancient healing techniques with modern science, offering spa guests dozens of therapies such as hydrotherapy, ayurvedic medicine, and yoga, to name a few. In addition, the locals are renowned for their politeness and nuanced African-style dance and music. Dining at Parrot Cay is largely influenced by the Caribbean’s rich seafood supply, with options that include Asian and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. You can also own a slice of paradise on Parrot Cay. Its beach houses start at $5 million and villas start at $10 million with neighbors that include Bruce Willis and Keith Richards.
