Life moves pretty slowly across this dream-like land of eight islands and more than 30 deserted cays with fabulous opportunities for world-class diving and deep sea fishing.

"Perfect for a romantic getaway, the Turks & Caicos have really come out of their shell, making the transformation from the ‘forgotten islands’ to the ‘new Bahamas’."

Consisting of 40 islands and cays (a few of which are uninhabited), and covering an area of 193 square miles, the Turks and Caicos islands have a gentle terrain that varies from sand dunes to lush, green vegetation, and a climate that obligingly completes this picture of perfection by providing temperatures that rarely reach very high or anything near cool.

All of this goes to create a beach-lover’s heaven, one with 230 miles of sands, golden drifts and crystal-clear blue waters.

Creating special moments

  1. Glowing Sunsets

    Glowing Sunsets

    Grab a sundowner and settle down to enjoy a fantastic natural entertainment that begins at sunset, when millions of glow-worms light up the Caicos Cays with their sparkling mating ritual three to six nights after the full moon.

  2. Catch of the Day

    Catch of the Day

    These islands are famous for their bonefish – a small but extremely powerful and fast fish that will test anyone’s skills as a fisherman on a half- or full-day charter.

  3. Triple the Fun

    Triple the Fun

    Combine three highlights in one day – beachcombing, wildlife watching and snorkeling. Visit the indigenous Rock Iguanas on Iguana Island; beachcombing on Sand Dollar Island; then snorkel one of the area’s pristine reefs and observe the underwater world.
