Turks and Caicos at a Glance

Warm, placid water and a relaxed vibe make this hidden vacation spot well-worth checking out. 

While tourism is on the rise in these sunny isles, Turks and Caicos is the place to go to beat the crowds and still enjoy the beach. Since the water is so still around the islands, divers will find clear views and easy swimming underwater. Beach-lovers will find miles of sugary beaches in both developed and undeveloped areas.

If your dream is a solitary escape, hop a boat and head out to one of the small islands. Walking the shoreline, finding your own beach and exploring the salt water ponds are all within your grasp. Have a tasty, if exotic conch dinner to top it all off. 

Bring some water and some sunscreen and get ready to have an adventure.
