Top Reasons to Visit the Turks and Caicos Islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands consist of forty distinct islands, cays, and atolls, by default giving any traveler forty beautiful reasons to visit this diverse island nation. In case you need specific ones, we’ve highlighted a few more great reasons below.

The Snorkeling and Diving. The Turks and Caicos is home to world-class snorkeling and diving and there are plenty of reputable companies that offer charters to premium dive locations and will provide all the necessary equipment and instruction. Some of them will even provide refreshments when you’re done. 

Snorkeling - Turks and Caicos

Just off the coastline of the Turks and Caicos Islands, stretches a 340-mile barrier reef. The reef is home to a bustling marine life including sharks, rays, coral, and vibrantly colored tropical fish. The reef also helps shield the beaches of the Turks and Caicos from large waves, allowing the waters surrounding the reef to stay calm and clear for optimal snorkeling – even for beginners.

The Food. One particularly enjoyable part of any memorable vacation is the opportunity to encounter the local culinary scene. With so many outstanding restaurants in the Turks and Caicos Islands, especially on Providenciales, you could eat at a different restaurant for every meal and have a unique experience each time. 

For the best in casual beachside dining, try Somewhere Café & Lounge or the world famous da Conch Shack Restaurant & Rum Bar. Both establishments offer delicious food, refreshing cocktails, friendly service, and live music on the beach each with their own distinctive flare.

Restaurants and Bars Turks and Caicos

If fine dining is what you are looking for, Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar and Coco Bistro should be tops on your list. Both restaurants offer an elegant dining experience and impeccable service in an open-air setting. Dine ocean-side at Infiniti to the sounds of the trade winds, while at Coco Bistro the wind through the canopy of palm trees provides part of the ambience. 

You also might consider to hire a private chef to comfort your luxury villa stay.

Turks & Caicos Beach

The Beaches. Grace Bay Beach, the Turks and Caicos Islands’ signature beach, is routinely voted one of the top beaches in the world by travel magazines. With its sugar white sands and glass-like turquoise waters, it isn’t difficult to see why. While Grace Bay Beach may be the one most widely known, it is only one of dozens of breathtaking beaches in the Turk and Caicos.  

Other magnificent TCI beaches on Providenciales include Long Bay Beach and Leeward Beach. On the southwest side of the island is Sapodilla Bay Beach, an especially tranquil pocket beach nestled between two hills. If you venture off the main hub of Providenciales, you can discover Half Moon Bay located between Water Cay and Little Water Cay and, Mudjin Harbor on Middle Caicos is just a short ferry ride away.
