Turks and Caicos are famous for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. They are postcard perfect white sand beaches and turquoise waters that can be the scenario for any of your dreams.
This British territory is a combination of eight main islands and more than thirty inhabited islets and cays. It is located north of the Dominican Republic and east of the Bahamas Islands.

There are practically no flights from other countries but the United States. Miami is great place to start. There are flights from there to the islands.
Just a few cruise lines have these islands in their Eastern Caribbean Cruises itineraries. Please note that visiting on a cruise will give you just a taste of the islands. This paradise should be given at least a week to enjoy its marvelous beaches.
Many yachts of all sizes arrive on the islands on their Caribbean Sailing Vacations, from all over the world and mainly from the United States and the Caribbean.
The best way to tour the islands is by scooter
Only on Provo, nicknamed for Providenciales, can you rent cars from some of the major companies. Not on the other islands.
The same as above, only on Provo they have a few routes as well as charter buses. Providenciales is the most visited of the islands, so the options are more for all kind of services.
Again, only in Provo can you find rental companies of bikes and scooters. This way you can explore the island on your own at your own pace.

If you like fishing, go to South Caicos for lobster and conch but also enjoy the magnificent beaches of this small isle with the exuberant views of the crystal blue waters and the other islands.
