Colourful umbrellas and lounges on the white, sandy Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos

A British territory situated in the Caribbean, Turks and Caicos is famous for its pristine beaches and clear, turquoise water. The string of tropical islands and cays is less developed than many other places in the region and is known for its natural beauty, relaxed lifestyle, and picture-perfect scenery.

Visitors tend to spend their time in Turks and Caicos sailing, snorkelling, diving and, of course, lounging on the beach. Along with the white sand and colourful coral, local history and culture is easy to find, especially in Grand Turk, where Christopher Columbus first docked in the Western Hemisphere.
