Introducing Turks and Caicos

Mix with celebrities in the Turks and Caicos – a popular hideaway for the rich and famous, honeymoon couples and families ‘in the know’.

The Turks and Caicos (commonly known as TCI) are devoid of crowds, theme parks and duty free megamalls, yet blessed with stunning natural beauty – perfect for a secluded honeymoon holiday.

Turks and Caicos consist of seven main islands and about 40 small islands and uninhabited cays. Providenciales and Grand Turk are home to the majority of the country’s population. Both islands host nearly all of the infrastructure and tourism.

Diving in the Turks and Caicos

What to do and see in Turks and Caicos

It’s easy here to make yours the only footprints on kilometres of unspoiled powder-white beaches – just perfect for honeymoon couples.

Play Robinson Crusoe on an unspoiled and uninhabited cay, swim, snorkel and dive in gin-clear waters above vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life and enjoy creature comforts at a choice of exclusive resorts that confidently cater to the tastes of affluent visitors.

The crescent-shaped low lying coral island of Providenciales (more commonly known as Provo) is the most developed of the Turks and Caicos.

The larger Caicos group is separated from the Turks by a 35km-wide seawater channel. The main tourist facilities of this self-governing British territory lie around Turtle Cove and Grace Bay.

Explore Provo on foot, mountain bike or by open-top jeep, taking time to visit the Conch Bar Caves, a huge aboveground limestone cave system used by pre-Columbian Lucayan Indians some 600 years ago.

Hike or mountain bike the old Crossing Place Trail, a scenic 18th century coastal path overlooking a series of secluded shallow coves and the blue-green waters of Mudjin Harbour.

See commercially farmed conches (shellfish) at the Caicos Conch Farm, explore a colonial cotton plantation at Cheshire Hall and wander into caves that were once pirate hideaways at Cooper Jack Bay.

Ride a horse at scenic Long Bay or stroll the pristine white sands of Grace Bay – especially beautiful just before sunset – then unwind with a cold drink at the beachside Grace Bay Club.

As the sun sets, relax with a local rum punch then savour a dish of local ‘hominy’ (cooked with dried conch) before heading off to a beach party, nightclub or disco.

Island hopping…

Check out the other islands in the Turks and Caicos group on a day trip or longer cruise: snorkel off Salt Cay, watch native rock iguanas at the nature reserve on Little Water Cay, see historic sights on Fort George Cay, dive the Wall off Grand Turk then go ashore and climb a well-worn path to the historic lighthouse that sits above the charming village of Cockburn Town.

Enjoy underwater sites, without getting wet, in a glass bottom semi-submarine, kayak secluded offshore cays and watch humpback whales during their migration between December and April.
