Turks and Caicos Islands On a Budget
Turks and Caicos Islands Turks and Caicos
The islands of Turks and Caicos actually consist of over 40 separate islands and stretches over a 37 mile area. The country is located 550 miles south of Florida and is technically in the Atlantic Ocean, not the Caribbean. The population of the entire country is just 30,000, and there are hundreds of thousands of visitors by both plane and cruise ship every year.

The main eight islands in Turks and Caicos are Providenciales, East Caicos, Grand Turk, Middle Caicos, North Caicos, South Caicos, Grand Turk, West Caicos and Salt Cay. Providenciales is the most developed of the islands and East Caicos is the third largest, although it is uninhabited. Grand Turk is a destination for several cruise ships. They stop at the Carnival Cruise Terminal which is located near the south end of the island. Cruises to Turks and Caicos continue to grow in number, but there are still not more than two cruise ships docked at the port at a time.

Accommodation is available in all forms throughout the islands. High end luxury resorts are available for those who are looking for a hassle free, pamper filled holiday. There are also villas and vacation rentals available for those travelers who are looking for more space and are interested in cooking some of their own meals. Restaurants, specifically those geared toward tourists, can be expensive, so in-suite kitchens can be a real money saver. Accommodation prices in general can be quite high, but the beach access, quality, and security are all quite good.

There are many different activities available on the islands. Some of the most popular things to do include scuba diving, snorkeling, golfing, fishing, shopping, dining, and water sports. There are also many different spas and salons around which cater to visitors. Whether you're looking to be pampered or have a high adventure, Turks and Caicos likely has something you'll enjoy.

There is typically a breeze over the islands that helps to keep the temperature moderate and comfortable. Temperatures in the winter months are somewhat cooler, but still quite pleasant.

  • If you're arriving by plane from the United States, the most popular airline is American. Flights are offered regularly into Providenciales International Airport. US Airways also offers flights from cities such as Charlotte, NC.

  • Cruises are beginning to frequent the islands more than they have in the past. Cruise lines dock at the terminal in Grand Turk. Alternatively, you could take a smaller or personal vessel to the islands and dock at any number of places on a number of different islands.

  • Taxis and rental cars or motorbikes are the most popular ways to explore the islands. Taxi drivers often act as impromptu tour guides and can take you to less famous, off the beaten path places if you request it. Negotiate a price up front so you know exactly how far your going and how much you'll pay for it.

  • There are many different activities you can enjoy while you're in Turks and Caicos. Popular activities include everything from scuba diving, sailing, shopping, parasailing and more.
