Turks and Caicos Hotel and Travel info

Turks and Caicos Hotels

Just twenty years ago, the Turks and Caicos Islands were one of the quietest and least-known destinations in the West Indies. Today, on the back of classy development on Providenciales, and great beaches and diving on all of the islands, they have become one of the most fashionable places to visit in the region.

The country comprises two groups of islands - eight inhabited and around forty uninhabited - separated by the Columbus Passage, a deep-water channel 22 miles wide and up to 6000 feet deep.  To the east, the Turks Islands include Grand Turk and Salt Cay , the former the long-time home to government, the latter a tiny island named for the salt industry that once dominated the country.  To the west, the chain of Caicos Islands includes inhabited South, Middle and North Caicos - each with its own charms - and the fast-growing island of Providenciales, known as Provo and home to the great majority of the nation's tourist development.
