6 Things to Love About Turks and Caicos Islands

Looking for a new place to see? You have probably heard of Turks And Caicos Islands and guess what? The hype is true!

Turks and Caicos is an archipelago of 40 low-lying coral islands in the Atlantic Ocean, a British Overseas Territory southeast of the Bahamas. The gateway island of Providenciales, known as Provo, is home to expansive Grace Bay Beach, with luxury resorts, shops and restaurants.

Famous for beautiful beaches and electric turquoise water, Turks and Caicos is also famous for its 14-mile barrier reef on Provo’s north shore and a dramatic 2,134 m underwater wall off Grand Turk island.

Collectively, there are approximately 340 miles of barrier reef surrounding the Turks and Caicos, with about 240 miles of it bordering the Caicos Islands archipelago and Caicos Banks, and about 100 miles of the system encompassing the Turks Islands chain.

All that to say, this place is a dream destination.

If you are making the trip to Turks and Caicos, here are 6 things you will absolutely love about this place:

Language and Currency

Traveling to another country can be overwhelming. If you are traveling to Turks and Caicos from the U.S. you will be glad to know the primary language is English, and they use the U.S. dollar. You will easily be able to navigate and no need to worry about switching currency.

Water

It’s true what they say – Turks and Caicos has the prettiest water! It is various shades of turquoise and some parts of the island offer a shallow beach area where turquoise water meets snowy white sand. It’s possible to venture out into the ocean without getting into really deep water.

Beaches

With an average temperature year-round of 80° Fahrenheit in Turks and Caicos, the weather is always perfect. Grace Bay Beach is well known and noted by many as one of the world’s best beaches. You will really love the other beaches in the area too.
