Turks and Caicos Highlights
A United Kingdom overseas territory, the 40-odd islands that comprise the Turks and Caicos are about as removed from traditional U.K. weather as you can get. Here you’ll find warm Caribbean sun, superb underwater activity, and white sand beaches that repeatedly get voted as among the world’s best. What’s more, the Turks and Caicos have a thriving music scene that is gaining international repute for good jazz, and thus changing the oft-asked question of “what’s there to see in the Turks and Caicos” to “what’s there to hear?”
You might have heard that the Turks and Caicos islands are a beach lover’s dream retreat, and that’s true, but what many people don’t know is that the Turks and Caicos also offer some great outdoor activities that involve more than just laying on the beach. The Turks and Caicos are home to an abundance of bird species – herons, eagles, egrets, eagles, and more help make the outdoor activities here famous. Explore mangrove swamps by kayak or have an eco-adventure on the salt ponds – excellent choices to see a different side of the islands. Or go rogue and cover discover the island’s rich colonial history by visiting Cheshire Hall, an ancient former cotton plantation. The Middle Caicos Caves are another popular attraction where limestone structures make for eerie fun.
