Travel to Turks and Caicos Islands
Part of the Lucayan Archipelago consisting of over 30 islands and cays, many of which are uninhabited, the Turks & Caicos are of incomparable beauty. Many travel magazines have named Providenciales, the most developed for tourism, as the most beautiful island in the world.
That is not the only spot that draws attention to the Turks & Caicos, as many other of its islands top the list of the most beautiful vacation destinations in the world. Welcome to a world of dreams and sensuality!
What to Do During Your Stay in the Turks & Caicos
A British Overseas Territory, the Turks & Caicos Islands derive their name, in part, from the term used by the Lucayan people (who inhabited the islands over a millennium ago) meaning “a string of islands.” Those islands are separated by beautiful turquoise waters and coral reefs. As you will see, one travels to the Antilles for a relaxing holiday in the sun and to enjoy the luxuries that an all-inclusive resort has to offer. It is no surprise that the two archipelagos of the Turks and Caicos contain some of the most prestigious all-inclusive hotels in the Antilles and Caribbean.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are perfect for a romantic vacation getaway, as they have everything you need to relax and unwind in a sublime setting: gourmet restaurants, spas, private marinas, white sandy beaches that go on forever, lush landscapes, duty free shops, luxury suites, casinos, golf courses, nautical excursions, etc.
It goes without saying that this is also the perfect place to say “I do” to your betrothed, especially since many hotels offer destination wedding packages.
Cockburn Town, the Capital
Among the must-see destinations on your trip to Turks & Caicos, include a visit to the capital, Cockburn Town, where you will be enchanted by its pretty coloured houses and can explore the culture of the country.
Located on Grand Turk, the largest island of the country, Cockburn Town houses a national museum where tourists can learn about the history of the island and see the oldest European shipwreck to have been reclaimed from the sea in the West.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are also the perfect place to explore wildlife. Birdwatching is one of the most popular activities on the island. One can admire many species of exotic birds, such as the heron and the American flamingo, to name only a couple.
Sport Fishing and Scuba Diving
Another must-see: South Caicos, the capital of sport fishing, where you can catch many species of fish, such as the kingfish, barracuda, and marlin. It's also the perfect place for scuba diving.
Sunbathers will be stunned by the beaches of Grace Bay, the most popular, not to mention Sapodillas Bay, Long Bay, and Blue Hill, to name just a few.
But these are just a few of the many things to not miss if you are planning a trip to Turks & Caicos. Once you have set foot in this beautiful country, you'll never want to leave!
