Explore Turks and Caicos
All international arrivals will land at Providenciales International Airport. Travellers departing from Central Europe will find easy connections via London then Antigua or Miami and New York. You can also get direct flights from nearby islands such as the Bahamas. Therefore, why not combine your trip with another Carribean destination? Since inland attractions, hotels and restaurants are rather spread out, the best way to travel around is via chauffeured car or private boat.
Climate & seasons
Despite boasting pleasant weather year-round, Turks and Caicos does have a rainy season between June and November, during which hurricanes are also more prone. Like most of the Caribbean, peak season is from December to March, with December being the most expensive and busy time to go. April and May are tempting alternatives, promising less crowds.
Where to go
Within this 100+ network of islands and cays, three main personas can be detected. The first is glamorous Providenciales, or “Provo” as nicknamed by locals. Here, a bevy of luxury hotels lies in store. Capital Grand Turk is laidback, yet draped in history and culture, as well as being a popular cruise ship hub. Here, the National Museum and Cockburn Town are two corners to explore. Finally, there’s sparsely-populated Salt Cay, home to one of the largest reefs in the world.
What to do
Powdery white sand bays and crystal-clear waves make Turks and Caicos a gem for beach lovers. However, within this pristine Caribbean destination there is plenty more in store. Diners have wanton tropical flavours such as conch to sample. Divers are spoiled by what awaits below the surface. Underground caverns and lakes make for great day trips. Then there’s the colourful bustle and local culture gracing Grand Turk. Let’s cut to the chase. Every type of traveller will find entertainment, indulgence and more.
