Turks and Caicos Islands

Unspoilt paradise with a wealth of untouched natural beauty

The Turks and Caicos islands are located to the South East of the Bahamas and just 8 out of the 40 islands are inhabited. There are world class luxurious hotels with regular visitors from Hollywood enjoying anonymity and solitude especially on the boutique island of Parrot Cay, where beachfront homes have been built for the rich and famous.

You will find extensive stretches of uncrowded incredibly white beaches and vibrant coral reefs which make this area renowned for being one of the best dive sites in the world. The azure waters of the Caribbean are simply perfect for snorkelling and diving with miles of unspoiled barrier reef teeming with colourful fish and sealife including reef sharks, turtles and neon-bright fish. If you can’t yet scuba dive, don’t worry…there are plenty of local dive schools who can take you through a PADI certified course. You could also try out kayaking, parasailing, stand-up paddleboarding and Hobie Cats.

Providenciales (known as Provo locally) is the most inhabited island of the group and home to the pristine and award-winning Grace Bay Beach. This 12 mile, white-sand beach has calm waters and is simply breathtaking.

Parrot Cay sits at the top of the archipelago chain and is a honeymooner’s paradise. This tranquil retreat has gentle turquoise waters lapping at impossibly white-sand beaches. It’s just the place to indulge in a complete get-away-from-it-all holiday where the most taxing thing you’ll have to do is decide which spa treatment you want to try next.
