The Turks and Caicos Islands are located in the Caribbean, between Cuba and the Bahamas, and are an ideal destination for an idyllic sun and beach vacation. This archipelago, made up of thirty islands, is perfect for relaxing on its white sand beaches surrounded by coconut trees and turquoise waters.
This British Overseas Territory is undoubtedly one of the best beach destinations on the planet. There are eight main islands, of which 6 are populated. The Turks Islands, located to the east of the archipelago, include Grand Turk (the location of the capital) and Salt Cay. The Caicos Islands are composed (from west to east) of West Caicos, Providenciales, North Caicos, Central Caicos, East Caicos, and South Caicos. Most of the small cays, such as Parrot Cay, Dellis Cay, and Little Agua Cay, are located among the Caicos Islands.
Providenciales is the place of residence of the majority of the population and the most developed, and where the Providenciales International Airport (PLS) is located, where all international flights arrive. Grand Turk is the second most populated island, the seat of government, and where the Grand Turk Cruise Center is located.
Citizens of Spain, the United States, Canada, the European Union, and many other Latin American countries can visit visa-free for 90 days with a valid passport. It is possible to extend your trip once for an additional 90 days after visiting an immigration office in Providenciales or Grand Turk. In Provinciales, the most populated island in the entire archipelago, you can stroll along the beautiful and long beach of Grace Bay, a perfect paradise to relax on the sand and enjoy the numerous water activities that will delight the most sporty.
English is the only official language of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Immigrants from Haiti and the Dominican Republic speak Haitian Creole and Spanish. Many bars and restaurants have Dominican staff, and therefore, it is easy to find someone who speaks Spanish.
Don’t miss the opportunity to discover the capital, Cockburn Town, which is located on the island of Grand Turk, to learn more about the history of these Turks and Caicos Islands at the National Museum. Stroll through the streets of the capital to discover the striking picturesque houses and the fabulous, colorful market bathed in the aromas of the islands’ typical spices. Come and see the old lighthouse that has long guided sailors through the waters of the archipelago. This destination is ideal for diving lovers, as here you can admire the coral reefs, fish, turtles, and all types of shark species that make the seabed so beautiful. You can also spot hundreds of species of seabirds in the sky.
It would be a sin to leave this archipelago without trying the culinary specialties of Caribbean influences. Here you can try all kinds of dishes based on seafood and fish, but also meat or chicken colombos marinated with spices. And as expected, cocktails and rum cannot be missing on your exotic dream vacation!
