The small string of isles offer accommodation to suit every budget and taste. There’s exquisite dining, unparalleled service, superb white sandy beaches, enviable natural reserves and sanctuaries, and a vibrant culture. The islands offer something for everyone, from those seeking the ultimate in luxury and seclusion to those who simply want a relaxing, no-frills holiday.
There are eight inhabited islands, each distinctive and a destination in its own right. Providenciales is the most developed island, and the economic and tourism hub. Grand Turk is the capital, a diver’s mecca and home to Cockburn Town. The islands of North and Middle Caicos are an ecotourism destination. Known as ‘The Big South’, South Caicos is the fishing capital and home to the country’s longest seafaring festival, The Regatta. Salt Cay, meanwhile, has been deemed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, while Parrot Cay, Pine Cay and Ambergris Cay are luxury private islands.
Turks and Caicos has spectacular vistas and a unique marine. The islands sit on the third largest barrier reef system in the world, home to 35 species of coral and 400 fish species. With crystal clear turquoise waters, the islands are a world-class dive and watersports destination.
For the adventurous traveller, activities include: fishing, hiking, trekking, birdwatching, snorkelling, parasailing, golfing, horse riding, eco tours, heritage walks and outdoor camping. Visitors can also enjoy cooking classes, rum tastings, local markets and community visits.
Guests can visit Pumpkin Bluff National Pond Reserve, Mudjin Harbour, Wades Green Loyalist Plantation or the Caves at Conch Bar. Take an excursion to Little Water Cay to see the native rock iguana or Gibbs Cay to swim with stingrays and see migrating humpback whales between December and April.
With excellent weather year round, a vibrant economy, a safe environment for tourists and residents, this country is indeed a paradise. Visitors can discover Turks and Caicos now, while they remain among the most protected and untouched in the Caribbean.
