North of the Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos is famous for its divine white sand beaches.
Famous, however, might not be the right word as the islands have managed to stay delightfully off the tourist radar – maybe because they are so quiet. But this archipelago nation has no reason to be furtive; it’s a truly one of the finest examples of laid-back life the Caribbean can offer.
Turks and Caicos is a blend of truly upmarket tourist experiences and as truly unspoiled as the Caribbean gets.
Diving is a great idea here whether you’re a rookie or a regular – the perfectly clear water makes it in an ideal place to earn your stripes or reach new depths. And you’re only ever a short boat ride away from a tiny, secluded island that is all to yourself.
The population of over 45,000 are found across eight of the islands, but the majority live on Providenciales, one of the Caicos Islands.
Why visit Turks and Caicos?
