Found in the Northern Caribbean, Turks and Caicos are a collection of island clusters found to the north of Hispaniola. Close by are the Bahamas.
Separated by the Turks Passage are the distinct island groups of Turks and Caicos. There are eight main islands and almost 300 other smaller islands. Grand Turk and Salt Cay are the most populated islands of Turks, and Providenciales is the most populous of Caicos. Altogether, there are only 49,000 people residing throughout the islands.
Sunny and tropical, it is seldom cloudy. Unfortunately, Turks and Caicos are frequently on the main path of hurricanes that rampage through the Caribbean, leading to extensive damage of the infrastructure and coral reefs.
Grace Bay Beach on Provo is an ideal place to unwind and soak up the Caribbean sunshine. Visit the Conch Farm to learn about the Queen Conch’s life. Check out The Hole, a limestone chimney with a saltwater pool at the bottom. Stop by the Grand Turk Cruise Center for dining and shopping. Take a tour of the Turks and Caicos National Museum to experience the rich culture and diversity of the islands.
Flying in to Turks and Caicos is a dream, with endless waters to greet you outside your window. If you prefer getting around by water, there are ferries that go to various ports on and between the islands.
