About the Turks and Caicos Islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory located at the southern end of the Bahamas, just over an hour flight south-east of Florida. The Turks and Caicos Islands are made up of approximately forty islands, eight of which are inhabited, covering approximately 200 square miles, all surrounded by the second largest coral barrier reef in the world. The largest and most populated island is Providenciales, where the development of hotels, condominiums, private residences, offices, and commercial complexes is taking place very quickly.

The Turks and Caicos Islands has quickly become one of the most luxurious Caribbean destinations, due mainly to our white, sandy beaches, coral barrier reef and reef wall which provide some of the best diving in the Caribbean. Grace Bay Beach consistently ranks as one of the top beaches in the world year after year and was awarded Trip Advisors #1 Beach in the world in 2018.
