turks and caicos


It's a cliché at this point that puppies make everything better, but this latest discovery proves that even paradise is better with a puppy to hand. 

The glorious islands of Turks and Caicos are famous thanks to their popularity among celebs, and now, there is a whole new reason to visit the gorgeous sandy strands.

As well as crystal blue waters and soaring temperatures, you can now play with hundreds of puppies on one island in particular.

The Potcake Place rescue centre is inviting visitors to the islands to come and play with their range of rescue dogs and puppies.

'Our headquarters are located in Saltmills Plaza in the Grace Bay area of Providenciales,' reads the website.

'Pop in, meet some puppies and learn some more about what we do.'

'We have a constant stream of puppies needing socialisation and adoption.'

'You can come by and take a puppy out to the beach – we'll give you everything you need, you just need to supply some TLC.'

The absolute dream… 



A tropical island filled with rescue puppies? Have our dreams come true? We think so.

Because what's better than beautiful landscapes, sunny skies and an abundance of pups that need care and love? Nothing. Nothing is better, we tell you.

On the island of Providenciales in Turks & Caicos there is a charity dedicated to re-homing and caring for 'potcake' puppies, a mixed breed of Labrador Retriver, German Shepherd and English Fox Terriers that are currently over-bred and over-populated in the Caribbean.

On average, the shelter houses between 50-70 puppies at any time. They make sure all of the dogs receive their vaccinations, are in tip top shape.

They even arrange certification for the pups to travel, and say "if an adoption goes ahead, we help book the pup on the plane, and meet the families at the airport”.

However, if you're not in a position to adopt a puppy, you're more than welcome to come onto the island and play with the dogs because they benefit hugely from human interaction.

To adopt a pup, you have to be over the age of 25 and commit to caring for it for 10-15 years. 

To adopt is free, but the rescue centre does ask for a donation, which we believe it fair enough.


They tied the knot in a breathtaking wedding ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida a week ago, but the luxury didn't end there for Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello.

The newlyweds each took to Instagram last night to share some more snaps of their wedding celebrations – this time from their sun-drenched honeymoon in Turks and Caicos.

Sitting just south-east of the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos is a group of tiny islands loved among the celebrity elite for its mix of five-star facilities and total isolation.

Handily, it seems like Sofia and Joe had their trip costs covered by Robert Earl, a co-owner of the Parrot Bay by Como resort which opened in 2009.

"We will never forget this place," Sofia wrote alongside one of her holiday pics.

In another photo Joe lies on a pristine white beach "trying to catch a crab," while his wife snaps a selfie.

No doubt the new Mr and Mrs Manganiello were housed in one of Parrot Bay's famous beach villas, which have direct access to the resort's 1.6km stretch of white sandy beach.

Each villa also comes equipped with a a heated outdoor pool and verandah, outside dining area and of course a personalised 24-hour butler service. Talk about living the dream.

Refreshingly, Sofia and Joe have been very open about the ins-and-outs of their 300-guest wedding, choosing to post photos online rather than wait for a magazine deal.

The couple took to Instagram to document every part of their wedding weekend – from Saturday's rehearsal dinner to the dancefloor madness on Sunday night.

Dressed in a corseted strapless Zuhair Murad sheath dress with a detachable full skirt, Sofia looked every bit the picture-perfect bride.
