Turks & Caicos Islands
The Turks & Caicos Islands consist of 40 different islands, only eight of which are inhabited. The islands are almost as diverse as the people who inhabit them. From the main tourist center of Providenciales to the quiet and tranquil islands of North and Middle Caicos to the historic Capital Island of Grand Turk, each offers a different experience and a unique character but all offer great climate, beaches and underwater activities.
Most of the islands are about 10 to 25 minutes by air from Provo and most can also be reached by boat. There are also regular ferries from North to Middle Caicos. Providenciales is the most well known of the Turks & Caicos Islands and is the center of the tourism industry with a wide range of hotels, restaurants and attractions.
Grand Turk and Salt Cay offer history with great Bermudian architecture and rustic charm, as well as some of the best diving.
Middle Caicos and North Caicos represent the best of the environment, with lush green woodlands, the largest cave network in the Caribbean (on Middle Caicos) and a vast range of plant and birdlife.
South Caicos is the center for fishing, with lobster and conch exported from the islands, the historic Cockburn Harbour 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.
