On many holidays you consider renting a car. If you’re visiting Turks and Caicos you hire a boat. And then embark on a voyage of exploration to tiny inlets, deserted beaches and uninhabited cays cast across a deep blue sea.
With absolutely fabulous beaches and a setting in the heart of one of the world’s longest and best preserved coral reefs, it will come as no surprise that most visitors to Turks and Caicos are attracted to the unparalleled diving and snorkelling.
Take the plunge yourself and you’ll be enthralled by a multi-coloured world of shimmering shoals, fantastically carved coral and a kaleidoscopic array of sea creatures. Some of them inquisitive enough to swim right up to your diving mask. You will definitely need a camera that shoots underwater.
And the adventure doesn’t end there. Talk to Alison Jones, our expert consultant on all things to do with Turks and Caicos and she’ll recommend you hire a boat. All the better to explore the deserted cays of North Caicos, the private inlets, the myriad magical beaches and islands like Little Water Cay – home to around 50,000 rock iguanas.
Alison will also inspire you to take a land journey; to one of the region’s most picturesque golf courses. Or to the quaint capital of Old Turk with its rustic charm, its winding streets and historic buildings, and its wonderful natural history museum that gives you a fascinating, potted history of this unique island.
