Turks & Caicos
Turks & Caicos is located at the end of the Bahamas chain of islands and with only eight of the forty islands inhabited, this is a place that allows you to truly escape. Stretches of pristine uncrowded beaches, secluded bays, inviting calm turquoise waters populated by glorious coral reefs teeming with colourful underwater life create the perfect environment for diving, snorkelling and fishing. Explore the historic towns and villages where life creeps along at its own pace, experience the excitement of whale watching at Salt Cay, watch a glorious sunset at Grace Bay, or enjoy kayaking in lush North Caicos.
