Travel to Turks and Caicos

Great Vacation Fun

Discover the beauty and splendor of the Turks and Caicos!

The Turks and Caicos Islands consist of 40 islands and cays, eight of which are inhabited. The islands of the Turks and Caicos are almost as diverse as its people. The islands are located 550 miles southeast of Miami, Florida, just below the Bahamas chain and just to the east of Cuba and the island of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti.) Technically, the Turks and Caicos are located in the Atlantic Ocean, not the Caribbean Sea.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are surrounded by one of the most extensive coral reef systems worldwide (65 miles across and 200 miles long). As a result, the exotic islands are consistently ranked as one of the premier diving locations in the world.

Grand Turk and Salt Cay offer a glimpse into Caribbean history with great Bermudian architecture and a rustic charm as well as some of the best diving and probably the most "relaxing" time you will ever have. Grand Turk is also home to a brand new cruise ship center.

Middle Caicos and North Caicos represent the best of the environment, with lush green woodlands, the biggest cave network in the Caribbean on Middle Caicos, cottage pond and flamingo pond in North Caicos and a vast range of plant life and birdlife.

South Caicos is the center for fishing, with lobster and conch exported from the islands, the historic Cockburn harbor and the natural phenomenon of the boiling hole. This small yet friendly island offers many secluded beaches with awe inspiring views of the turquoise waters and surrounding islands.

Parrot Cay and Pine Cay are privately owned islands and are home to the most exclusive resorts Parrot Cay Resort and Spa and the Meridian Club.

Fun while you are there.

Chartering a boat for the day is the ideal way to island hop, arrange a secluded beach picnic or beach BBQ with a group, help you hunt for sand dollars and shells, or just get you up to the next island. Many services double as scuba, snorkeling or fishing guides.
