  • Tailor-made luxury holidays to Turks and Caicos

    Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean
    Out of the low-lying forty or so islands south of the Bahamas, only about eight of the islands of Turks and Caicos are inhabited. Turks and Caicos are surrounded by one of the longest coral reefs in the world and the islands are renowned for their white sand beaches and azure water. There is no recognised rainy season in the Turks and Caicos islands which is unusual in the Caribbean, making the summer a very attractive time to visit too. Today the Turks and Caicos are still a British Dependent Territory and they really rely on offshore banking and tourism for revenue. Visitors come to Turks and Caicos for the glorious sandy beaches, one of the best being the 12-mile stretch of Grace Bay on the northern shore of Provo and the diving, with water visibility being excellent and great care taken to protect and conserve the reefs. Sailing trips to the nearby cays, many uninhabited, are another way of exploring the islands. If you want high standards of quality, excellent beaches and clear turquoise waters for rest and relaxation on your luxury holiday, then the Turks and Caicos are well worth exploring.

Cays stretching northeast from Provo - including Parrot Cay and Pine Cay, which has a superb two mile long beach of soft sand. Scuba diving is excellent, particularly around Grand Turk. Provo has the Caicos Conch Farm, where conchs are bred. Flamingos on uninhabited West Caicos, also good for diving and a great beach. Regattas including the Provo Summer Festival in July. Seafood especially conch is a speciality - watch out for it hanging out to dry on washing lines. The reef attracts numerous colourful fish as well as green turtles, manta and spotted eagle rays. 18 hole championship golf course on Provo. Jojo - a dolphin is known to frequent the Grace Bay area and swim with humans (he has a warden and is a protected wild animal).
