Turks & Caicos
The Turks and Caicos Islands are located just 575 miles south of Miami, Florida, making it one of the most convenient Caribbean vacation destinations to visit from the United States, Canada and Europe. Year-round nonstop flights are available from major cities including New York, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Toronto, and London (via Antigua). Nonstop regional flight service from Jamaica, Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Puerto Rico is available with regional carriers.
The British Overseas Territory consists of 40 islands, of which eight are inhabited. Providenciales is the island where the international airport (PLS) is located and where most Turks and Caicos resorts are situated on gorgeous Grace Bay Beach.
Visitors to Turks and Caicos Islands will find a terrific variety of things to do. The destination is home to the worldâ€™s third largest barrier reef, earning it a reputation for premier scuba diving excursions. Other marine adventures and water sports to be enjoyed in the stunningly clear turquoise waters that surround the island include snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, sailing, wind sports, kayaking and more.
On land, visitors will find an eclectic collection of boutiques and art galleries, fine restaurants and spas, the 18 hole championship Provo Golf Club, small casinos, horseback riding on the beach and of course the main attraction - 12 mile long Grace Bay beach, which has repeatedly earned the distinction of being rated the #1 beach in the world.
What visitors will not find in Turks and Caicos are traffic lights, fast food franchises, parking meters, nightclubs or high-rises. The islands provide a genuinely relaxed ambiance, where visitors can escape the hectic pace of daily life and truly embrace an island lifestyle.
