Turks & Caicos Islands Yacht Charter Guide
A deserted Caribbean sanctuary synonymous with relaxation and rejuvenation
Saturated in coral rich waters and a divine Caribbean climate the enclave of Turks & Caicos is nothing less than enchanting. Long overlooked as a charter destination Turks & Caicos is brimmed with opulence, boasting pristine beach resorts, warm turquoise waters and unspoilt cays making it the best kept secret of the Caribbean.
Located in the British West Indies and affectionately referred to as TCI by the locals, eight main islands and an abundance of cays make up this picture perfect archipelago. TCI boasts the third-largest coral reef in the world, making it a dedicated hot spot for divers who have long visited this region for the thriving marine life, secluded bays and serene beaches. As the name suggests, TCI is made up of the Turks Islands and the Caicos Islands which are separated by the Turks Island Passage.
The main islands of the Turks Islands are Grand Turk and Salt Cay, with Grand Turk being the larger of the two. Home to a small population of wild horses and donkeys, white-walled courtyards and picturesque churches, life in Grand Turk moves slowly, making for a charter destination which will rejuvenate the senses. Bougainvillea covers colonial inns creating a profusion of colour and an idyllic setting for leisurely walks and sightseeing voyages. The smaller isle of Salt Cay is just as sleepy and colourful with a laid back ambience which envelops every visitor. Beautifully preserved and bordered by beaches, this island is undeveloped and unspoiled making for the ultimate picturesque hideaway.
A venture along the Turks Island passage leads to the awe inspiring Caicos Islands where the main isles are divided into the Providenciales, North Caicos, Middle Caicos, East Caicos, South Caicos and West Caicos. Providenciales, or ‘Provo’ as it is often referred to, is the most developed of the Caicos Islands and deemed as the gateway to the Caicos Islands. Ever-expanding and teeming with modern amenities, Provo is saturated with golf courses, shopping centres, vibrant casinos and excellent restaurants. The conch farm is a natural wonder which also acts as a custodian for endangered sea turtles, an unmissable highlight of any Turks & Caicos Islands yacht charter.
Hop from one island to the next whilst absorbing the individual delights of each island endeavour. Middle Caicos and North Caicos are adjoined making them excellent for exploring together. Ramble along the trails of the Middle Caicos coastline whilst admiring the backdrop of breathtaking scenery of the dramatic enveloping cliffs. North Caicos, with its abundant rainfall, is the lushest island of the TCI chain and is an idyllic charter location. The flocking of many flamingos here makes for an astounding spectacle which will be adored by nature lovers.
This Caribbean destination is a classic tropical vacation. Unspoiled by tourism, the Turks & Caicos Islands offer a secluded and tranquil escape.
