Lovebirds Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff traded in the wooden floors of the Dancing with the Stars ballroom for the sandy beaches of Turks & Caicos last week.Exclusively invited by Premier Michael Misick and first lady Lisa Raye McCoy Misick, the two passed most of their time frolicking on the best beach in the world ? literally. The Islands’ Grace Bay Beach was voted world’s best beach by the World Travel Awards in 2007 and 2006.The couple of one year got the best treatment away from the shore too. Mario and Karina stayed at the Islands’ Point Grace resort and enjoyed its luxurious offerings, including spas at Thalasso Spa and meals at the elite Grace’s Cottage restaurant, not to mention at the Misicks’ home as well.If you want to live it up like Mario and Karina, check out Turks & Caicos Tourism and PointGrace.com.Photos: Tropical Imaging
