Turks & Caicos
The Turks and Caicos Islands are situated south-east of the Bahamas in the Atlantic Ocean , and consist of 40 low-lying coral islands.

With the beautiful scenery of clear blue sea and sandy beaches, it is a picturesque paradise which you will be guaranteed to want to return to. But why should you choose the destination for your next holiday? We asked two of the Island’s leading resort; Beach House and Blue Haven.
One of the main reasons to choose the Turks and Caicos Islands for you next holiday is that it is a small place which will offer you an experience you are unlikely to have had before. Many people are unaware of these islands, therefore it offers you a quiet and relaxing luxury holiday alongside other upscale vacationers. If you are looking for something low key for a change and the hustle and bustle of a busy tourist destination isn’t for you, then the Turks and Caicos Islands sound like the perfect holiday destination. Providenciales is the busiest island of the Turks and Caicos yet still being a beautiful paradise, however on island after island you’ll find few people, beautiful white beaches and plenty of things to do and places to explore.
Visit Grace Bay Beach
The biggest and most beautiful attraction on the island which is a reason to visit in itself is Grace Bay Beach. The entire beach is a long 3 mile stretch of clear water and white sand with no seaweed, rocks or pollution, and although it is the most popular destination on the islands, you will have no trouble finding your own quiet spot of paradise. Many of the water sports take place here although it is not the best destination on the island for snorkelling, however it is just a short boat ride away from the Great Barrier Reef.
Go Whale Watching
One of the amazing things to do on the Turks and Caicos Islands is Whale watching. If you are a lover of animals and nature then this certainly isn’t something to be missed whilst on the islands, and tours are available for you to experience the magnificence of the Caribbean humpback whales. Every year between January and March the Whales migrate through the islands which makes a great tourist attraction, however you are also able to spot them whilst snorkelling on the island. It is an incredible experience which you are unlikely to experience anywhere else, and it is a great reason to visit the islands.
Book A Beach Cruise
If you are looking for something to appeal to all ages then book a beach cruise. The cruises usually visit a variety of destinations including snorkelling spots, the iguanas of Little Water Cay and many beautiful beaches. Lunch is usually included in the cruises, usually in the form of a beach BBQ, and you may even have the option of catching your own lunch! These cruises are definitely worth booking if you are a lover of beaches, however if you are looking for the best snorkelling destinations then a dedicated snorkelling cruise may be a better option for you.
The final reason you should visit the Turks and Caicos islands is to do nothing! As I mentioned they are small islands which will let you escape your usually busy lifestyle, and everyone deserves a break every now and then. Being able to lay on a beautiful beach all day enjoying the scenery and the water is another great thing about the Turks and Caicos islands and there is no better place to do it than here.
