About Turks & Caicos
Home to the Best Beach in the World, breathtaking hues from inviting waters, and legendary diving, snorkeling and fishing, the Turks & Caicos Islands beckon you to an undiscovered Caribbean. Travel to the Turks and Caicos is easy and efficient. Just a short flight from the east coast of the US, our islands are a tropical classic, a throwback in time where relaxation is unavoidable and rejuvenation ensured.
Although the chain includes 40 islands and cays, only 10 are currently inhabited and the 37-square-mile island of Providenciales remains the focus of most visitor activities. From Providenciales to the quieter, more tranquil islands of North and Middle Caicos and the historic Capital Island of Grand Turk, each island offers a unique experience but all share the region’s exceptional climate and sun-splashed beaches. Thanks to one of the longest coral reefs in the world, the destination offers world-class scuba diving and snorkeling.
Although tourism is centered on Providenciales, the islands of Grand Turk and Salt Cay offer rich history with great Bermudian architecture and rustic charm, as well as some of the world’s best diving. Middle Caicos and North Caicos capture the best of the environment, with lush green woodlands, the largest cave network in the Caribbean (on Middle Caicos) and a vast range of plant and birdlife.
Once a salt exporter, South Caicos is the center for deep sea and bone fishing, with lobster and conch exported from the islands. This small yet friendly island offers many secluded beaches with awe-inspiring views of the turquoise waters and surrounding islands.
