Exploring the Different Islands of Turks and Caicos

The tropical paradise of the Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean is the perfect destination for your next getaway. There are eight major islands in Turks and Caicos and a scattering of smaller uninhabited islands just waiting to be explored. The sparkling deep turquoise waters and beautiful beaches are relaxing and peaceful. Stay in your own private island retreat and indulge in all the luxuries that come with it. As hard as it may be to drag yourself away from this tranquility, you'll want to explore all the islands have to offer.

For some amazing diving and whale watching, you'll want to head just below the island of Grand Turk to Salt Cay. The humpback whales migrate through here on their way to their breeding grounds. The sights and sounds of these awesome 50-foot creatures is definitely worth the visit. The scuba diving here is a fantastic adventure. Some of the best diving opportunities in the world are found here, including wrecks, a sunken warship, diving with whales and swimming with sting rays. Snorkel among the colorful sea life, or just sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views around Salt Cay.

North Caicos is where you will find abundant greenery and the most caves you can explore in the Caribbean. The southern part of Caicos is where the major fishing is done. Lobster and conch are very prominent here, and there are plenty of secluded islands for quiet time together. Embark on a journey to some of these secluded islands in Turks and Caicos and you will be rewarded with the tropical beauty that only the Caribbean can offer.

When you decide to pull yourself away from the beauty of the beach, you can take an energizing mountain bike ride, go kayaking, or visit Iguana Island and see the rock iguanas. There are museums, National Parks and even a conch farm to visit. Relax with a super invigorating spa treatment, or go on an Eco tour.

Wherever you choose to go while visiting Turks and Caicos, you will always feel as though you are at your own private island retreat.
