ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

The 40 islands and cays that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands , a British Overseas Territory, consist of two groups of tropical islands in the West Indies. The larger group is the Caicos Islands and the smaller, the Turks Islands. Both are known for tourism and offshore financial centers.

Eight of the islands are inhabited and their diversity offers unique experiences to fit any travelers' vacation plans. Many visitors make return trips on a regular basis.

With the white beaches, sparkling clear blue water, secluded bays and islands, historic towns and villages, diving, fishing -- the reputation of "beautiful by nature" is an apt description of this idyllic destination.

Don't miss the flamingo pond in North Caicos or the cave network (largest in the Carribean) on Middle Caicos. And most of all, enjoy the lush woodlands and the welcoming and friendly residents.


  • Electricity: 110V, 60Hz
  • Times to Travel: The Turks and Caicos are well known for their sunny days, which average about 350 days annually. Temperatures remain mostly unchanged throughout the year, around 80° F (26° C) to 90° F (32° C). The cooling tradewinds and low humidity keep the islands comfortable.

    December to April is the high season for travelers. The months of August to October are, most of the time, the warmest and temperatures can reach as high as 100° F (37° C).

    The average annual rainfall is only 21 inches.

    As with most of the Carribean islands, hurricane season runs from June to November, but there is ample warning time.
