Turks Caicos in a nutshell
Located less than 600 miles to the southeast of Miami the Turks Caicos Islands, an archipelago which boasts the third largest barrier reef system in the world, are made of 40 unspoilt islands and small cays – only eight of which are inhabited. The two distinct island groups are separated by the Turks Island Passage. The islands’ landscape is flat and dry, featuring low scrub, sandy dunes, limestone cliffs, clear blue water and white sand beaches. The main tourist island is Providenciales, from where the majority of the other islands can be reached by boat or between a ten to 25-minute flight; ferries also run from North Caicos to Middle Caicos. North Caicos is often referred to as the ‘garden island’ as it experiences more rain, therefore producing home grown fruit, and Grand Caicos is renowned for its dramatic caves. The islands enjoy a relatively dry, sunny, and stable climate, not often more than 33-34°C (91-93°F) or less than 18°C (64°F), and are within the Caribbean tropical storms/hurricane belt (July-November).
Why visit the Turks Caicos Islands
The Turks and Caicos Islands are good for family vacations and beach lovers, chilling out, romantic honeymoons (Parrot Cay and Pine Cay boutique Caribbean islands are secluded), Scuba diving and amazing whale watching (around Salt Cay February-March).
