Overview: Turks and Caicos Islands, known colloquially as TCI, has one of the longest stretches of white sandy beaches surrounded by beautiful turquoise waters. The name ‘Turks’, is derived from the indigenous Turks Head cactus, while, ‘Caicos’ is derived from the Lucayan term ‘caya hico’ meaning ‘string of islands’. Providenciales, commonly known as “Provo” and part of the Caicos chain, is the most populous of the islands with over 65 percent of the total population, while Grand Turk, of the Turks group, is the official capital and has the islands’ main cruise centre.

The Turks & Caicos Islands are comprised of 40 islands and cays in total. The islands are only about 10 to 25 minutes by air from Provo and the majority can be reached by boat, too. Regular ferries are also available from North to Middle Caicos.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are also home to the world’s third largest unspoiled coral reef system, making it a premier diving destination.
