TURKS & CAICOS

Overview

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI)are an archipelago of 40 islands, just 575 miles southeast of Miami, Florida. Sparsely populated and so far unspoiled, these beautiful Caribbean islands are home to some of the world’s best beaches.

 

Only eight of the islands are inhabited and each of them offers a unique holiday experience. From the upbeat atmosphere of Providenciales, the main tourist hub, to the secluded islands of Parrot Cay and Pine Cay or the quaint historic island of Grand Turk, there is something for every visitor.

 

With a warm dry climate, friendly people and natural beauty, it is not surprising that 60% of our visitors return again and again. Safe, quiet and boasting the world’s third largest barrier reef system, as well as world-class accommodation, spas and restaurants, the Turks and Caicos Islands are ideal for relaxation, romance and family holidays.

 

The Islands are a unique haven for marine turtles, migrating whales, and schools of wild dolphins and rare birds.

 

Come join us in the TCI, bask in the tropical sun, wet your feet in our azure blue waters, savour our delectable dishes, dance to some ripsaw music and forget about the trials of modern day life! Check out the new TCI app:
