The beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands are situated 575 miles southeast of Miami and 90 miles north of the Dominican Republic. Covering 193 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean, the Turks and Caicos Islands are today one of the most sought after Caribbean destination.
The Turks and Caicos are a small archipelago of eight major islands and more than 40 inhabited keys. They are surrounded by 230 miles of pristine white sandy beaches and have the third largest coral reef system in the world, making it a premier beach, diving and snorkeling destination.
Divers were the first to explore these islands as the long barrier reef protecting the islands is home to a colorful wildlife and magnificent coral formation. The Turks and Caicos host some of the best dive sites one can find, making these islands among the world’s top 10 diving spots.
The islands are relatively flat and covered by dense vegetation and sandy dunes.
Certainly, the most striking surprise is that The Turks and Caicos have remained largely undiscovered by tourism, despite its numerous beauties.
