If you’re considering jetting off to the Caribbean for a once in a lifetime holiday in the sun, you really are spoiled for choice.

From Barbados to the Bahamas and Trinidad to Tobago, there’s a host of gorgeous islands for you to explore and chill out on. However, one which sometimes gets overlooked is Turks & Caicos, a British Overseas Territory chain of 40 islands in the Lucayan Archipelago.

We’re going to take a look at ten reasons why you should consider these beautiful islands for your next Caribbean vacation.

1. The resorts

Your accommodation can make or break a holiday, but thankfully the Turks & Caicos has got a range of fantastic four and five-star resorts for you to stay at, from the big all-inclusive options to smaller boutique hotels.

The resorts themselves have very relaxed atmospheres and you can even find adult-only options if you want peace and quiet out of your holiday!

On the other hand, the resorts are all staffed by extremely knowledgeable locals who would be happy to help you sort out activities if you want a slightly more adventurous break.

2. The beaches

Turks & Caicos is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and is even home to the world’s best beach, the Grace Bay.

With its white sand and turquoise water brimming with wildlife, the beaches in Turks & Caicos are truly second to none, and they’re perfect whether you want to simply lie and take in some rays or want to explore the coastline, snorkeling or scuba diving.

3. Lots to see and do

If you don’t want to spend your days lazing on a beach, the islands have so much more to offer!

Whether it’s snorkeling at Bight Reef, golf at Provo Golf Club, or visiting the Turks & Caicos Conch Farm, you’re always sure to find something to do on the islands!

4. A rich mixture of heritage

While the Turks & Caicos Islands are now a British territory, it has been inhabited by Indian, French and Spanish settlers, giving it a real multicultural feel which is reflected in its architecture.

5. Home to a range of wildlife

The islands are home to an eclectic mix of marine and birdlife which you can spot on various excursions.

In fact, the Grand Turk Lighthouse is actually one of the best places in the world to see the famous humpback whales!

6. Delicious food and drink

The islands are also home to a range of places to eat and drink, serving up some genuine Caribbean grub as well as various gourmet restaurants.

For example, the Da Conch Shack serves up local specialties such as jerk chicken and rum and has been named one of the world’s best beach bars by CNN.

7. The weather

Of course, just like any other Caribbean island, the weather in the Turks & Caicos is incredible, with sunshine all year round and warm temperatures even throughout winter.

For an idea of the average temperatures and weather in Turks & Caicos head to their official tourism website.

8. Safety

The Turks & Caicos Islands actually have one of the lowest crime rates in the Caribbean and are well known as a safe tourist destination.

The locals are all very friendly and welcoming and often go out of their way to make you feel safe and at home.

9. English is the first language

Because it’s an overseas territory, English is the first language of the residents of Turks & Caicos.

While some locals speak the Creole language, you’ll have no trouble communicating with the majority of people, whereas in many Caribbean islands the first languages are French or Dutch.

10. Transportation

Because the islands are so small, you can get around them really easily, and one of the best ways for this is to rent a car.

You can easily navigate the whole coast of Provo (the main island) in a day, and what’s more, they drive on the left side of the road too!
