Turks & Caicos: Pirates & Coral Reefs

Home to some of the most impressive beaches in the Caribbean, the Turks and Caicos are a much loved yacht charter destination. Marooned between the main Caribbean and the Bahamas, the islands and cays follow a more tranquil approach to life. The chain of islands offer sheltered beaches, warm waters and historic settlements. They are home to the third-largest coral reef of the planet, and while once only divers knew the Turks and Caicos, the private island of Parrot Cay has brought luxury travel to the islands.

Here you can find relaxed glamour and sumptuous gardens. Middle Caicos offers an out-of-the-way experience, and a brgeat place to try fishing and water sports on the unspoilt shores. Spot whales while at anchor off the island of Providenciales, ideal territory for windsurfing, preferably in the waters off the Chalk Sound National Park Coast. The island of Provo offers a great challenge to adventurous swimmers at The Hole’: a limestone swimming hole more than 20 meters deep. Golfers should head to Provo Golf Club while those with cultural interests will love the Turks and Caicos National Museum in Grand Turk and the historical buildings and rustic charm of Cockburn Town.
