Welcome to Turks & Caicos Islands!

Originally inhabited by Taino and Lucayan peoples and later a haven for 18th century pirates, the Turks and Caicos Islands are today one of the Caribbean’s premiere beach destinations.  Over 40 islands and cays form the island country, known colloquially as TCI, but only eight are inhabited. Providenciales, part of the Caicos chain, is the most populous of the islands with over 65 percent of the total population, while Grand Turk, of the Turks group, is the official capital and has the islands’ main cruise centre.  

Situated in the Atlantic Ocean 880 km (550 mi) from Miami, Florida, the islands are less well known than their northerly neighbour, the Bahamas, but are arguably just as enticing.  With long stretches of white sandy beaches and a tropical landscape of mangroves, TCI is surrounded by deep sea waters popular with whales, turtles, tuna, marlin and coral reefs–making the islands a favourite for diving, snorkeling and fishing. Tourism and fishing aside, the islands also possess a third export–offshore financial services.  Where once Bermudians prospered from the islands’ significant sources of salt, savvy international investors now come for TCI’s tax-free advantages.
