The Turks and Caicos is composed of about
one hundred islands and cays of varying size, of which only eight are inhabited. Each of our main islands is unique in terms of history, natural and historical attractions.
What the Turks and Caicos Offers
You should first ask yourself what you're looking for in your Caribbean holiday. The appeal of the Turks and Caicos Islands are spectacular beaches, a pristine marine environment, and excellent water sports and activities.
Due to the extensive barrier reef and impressive walls,
diving throughout the Turk and Caicos is spectacular. Providenciales offers a great selection of dive shops and access to exceptional sites, but boat trips out can longer than what is typical for Grand Turk and Salt Cay.
Which Island is the Best for You?
Half Moon Bay and Water Cay.
The different islands in the Turks and Caicos each bring something unique to the table.
The wild North Caicos and Middle Caicos offer a different perspective. The greenest islands in the country, plantations here once exported cotton and sisal. Today, a quiet atmosphere, vast undeveloped land, secluded and impressive coastlines, and great natural points of interest are the main draws. Small
vacation rentals make up most of the accommodation options on these two islands.
The majestic Mudjin Harbour beach, Middle Caicos.
Often overlooked, the quiet Salt Cay and South Caicos offer visitors the chance to experience the Caribbean untouched by tourism. These little islands have both had a lucrative past
producing sea salt for export, but have seen declining economies since the end of the industry in the early 1900s. There’s a lot of and beach and coastal scenery to explore.
Why not the Turks and Caicos Islands?
If you're looking for casinos or nightlife, you would be better off visiting Las Vegas or another Caribbean destination. There are few casinos and nightlife options, so you would probably be disappointed.
