Turks and Caicos Has Incredible Beaches, Resorts and Beauty

Turks and Caicos are a British Overseas Territory made up of two groups of islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The economy is dominated by the tourism industry, and English is the official language.

Turks and Caicos is a popular vacation destination because of its beautiful beaches, gorgeous tropical weather, easygoing atmosphere, and luxury accommodations. There are two airports, but only the Providenciales International Airport has regular flights. While there are taxi cabs available, visitors are encouraged to rent a vehicle because there is no ridesharing or public transportation. Most days are sunny and warm in Turks and Caicos, but the best time to visit is between February and April when the peak tourist season has ended, temperatures range between 73 and 83 degrees, and it is not yet hurricane season.

The Must See Sights and Activities

There are many amazing things to see while visiting Turks and Caicos, but there are some that deserve to be highlighted.

  • Grace Bay - Voted ‘World’s Best Beach’ by the World Travel Awards, Grace Bay has stunningly clear water and pristine white sand. There is a wide variety of beachside bars to get refreshments from while you take in the breathtaking view of the ocean. You can spend your time relaxing, or you can participate in activities such as kayaking, jet skiing, paddle boarding, or windsurfing. Snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing are also available if you are interested.
  • The Cuisine at Salt Cay - If you are a lover of seafood, there is no better place to enjoy it than the three restaurants located on Salt Cay. This island only has 100 residents, so you will be sure to find a calm and serene atmosphere where you do not have to worry about crowds. You will also find exceptional food and service at Porter’s Island Thyme, the Coral Reef Bar and Grill, or Pat’s Place. Accommodations can be made for vegetarians, but be sure to call ahead to make the proper arrangements.
  • Turks and Caicos National Museum - If you are someone who appreciates history and wants to learn more about Turks and Caicos, then the National Museum is a must-see destination. One of its main exhibits is artifacts from the Molasses Reef Wreck, which is wreckage from the oldest European ship in the western world.
  • Bight Reef Marine Life - Divers love to visit Bight Reef because no matter where you choose to dive, you are likely to see a variety of sea life. This includes queen angelfish, barracudas, yellowtail snapper, green turtles, brown stingrays, and Nassau groupers.
  • Pirate’s Island Water Park - This water park is one of the largest in the Caribbean, and it offers something for everyone, no matter what your interests. For the thrill seeker, there are nine water slides, water cannons, and a surf simulator. If you want to have a more relaxing experience, you can drift down the 650-foot lazy river. Keep in mind, though, that only guests of the Beaches Turks and Caicos All-Inclusive Resort can access this water park. Once inside, however, there are free unlimited drinks and food.
