Why Turks & Caicos?

Why Turks & Caicos?

‘Beautiful by nature’ is the motto of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The name Turks is derived from the indigenous Turk’s Head “fez” cactus, and the name Caicos is a Lucayan term “cayo hico,” meaning string of islands. The Turks and Caicos feature 230 miles of white sandy beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. The islands are home to the third largest coral reef system in the world, providing extraordinary diving and snorkelling.

With a weather forecast of sunshine year round and minimal rainfall, it really is a dream destination.

The Turks and Caicos Islands lie 575 miles southeast of Miami, 30 miles southeast of the Bahamas and 120 miles northwest of the Dominican Republic. The nation consists of 40 islands and cays, only 8 of which are inhabited. The islands are divided into 2 groups ‘The Turks Islands’ and ‘The Caicos Islands’. The majority of visitors come to Providenciales, known for its luxury resorts, world class restaurants, strong infrastructure, and Grace Bay beach, voted the #1 beach in the world by Conde Nast. Provo, as it is lovingly know to locals, is small and easily navigated, making transfers between the airport and resorts short and simple. Travel time between on island destinations is rarely more than a fifteen minute journey.

Providenciales (PLS) is easily accessible with direct flights daily, year round from Miami and Charlotte. Regular flights are also available from New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto.
