About Turks & Caicos
The Turks and Caicos Islands are located on the lower Bahamas chain. They are composed of 9 inhabited islands and many other cays surrounding the islands. These islands are rumored to have been discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492. Now, some 500 years later the islands are being “rediscovered” as one of the fastest growing travel destinations in the Caribbean!
Famous for secluded beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, un-spoiled reefs and dramatic walls. This archipelago has some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world.
With white sandy beaches and beautiful turquoise water, you will want to get out and experience the most of the island. Whether you like to enjoy the water above the surface or enjoy the underwater life we have the best of both worlds!
The Turks and Caicos Islands are one of the last remaining British Colonies. They are located some 575 miles southeast of Miami Florida. The Bahamas are about 30 miles to the Northwest, and the Dominican Republic roughly 100 miles to the Southeast, and Cuba 90 miles west.
The country consists of two groups of islands, the Turks Islands and the Caicos Islands which are separated by a 22-mile passage called the Columbus Passage. To the west are the Caicos group: West Caicos, Providenciales, North Caicos, East Caicos and South Caicos. To the east are the Turks group: Grand Turk and Salt Cay.
