Turks and Caicos. We visited in December and it is stunning beautiful. With the addition of NO income, estate, corporate, real estate TAX . We went to Grand Turk, not much development.

We went to T’s and C’s 7 years ago, only to Provo, looked at plots on it’s golf course and completed houses too, had a good feel about it, can nip off to Bahamas and Florida easily, Grace Bay beach was superb.
The only downsides were we thought it was quite barren mainly limestone, not much tropical or luxuriant growth, most fruit is imported surprisingly as most things are, and Provo has lots of Potcakes which are packs of dogs which live in the scrub, sometimes pop out on you so you can’t get out of your car unless you want to risk it, few decent shops then.
Upsides, great weather except hurricane season and met a few who bought there after a big hurricane so prices were cheaper, great beaches, drive on the left, tax haven (or is it still?), British with American influence, very blue waters, luxury properties , and good hotels 😛

Always a downside. 😀 We were told water is scarce. Gardens all looked green. There are lots of wild donkeys living on Grand Turk.

I think we could have lived there though, maybe a bit limiting for things to do, and that’s why people fly off to Miami for shopping and major entertainment. Golf course looked quite good, anyone into water sports and fishing and sun would love it. Went to a few good restaurants, we stayed at The Sands on Grace Bay which was fine and had a beach front eatery called Hemingways 🙂
The water shortages mean that most houses have a huge depositor under the house which you pay the council to fill up when you want more.
British legal system and tax advantages help a lot 😛
Never been to Cayman Islands yet and wonder how they compare to T’s and C’s? 🙄

No shortage of water in the Cayman Islands…or banks 😆 Nice place and beaches, 7 mile beach is famous. I would like to live in one of those places if I could afford a largish boat and a small private aircraft.

I really would like one of those houses on Naples Beach as they might be a cheaper alternative, several are only $20 million used as weekend homes for CEO’s of Gen Motors and the like etc, Lear jets come in every weekend, plenty of Banks there too, tough old life for some 😛
I can dream
