Turks and Caicos Islands

The Turks & Caicos Islands are a spectacular destination for those who wish to get away from it all. One of the most valuable possessions of the islands are their pristine white sandy beaches, which are complemented with crystal clear turquoise waters. In addition, there are numerous national parks, nature preserves, sanctuaries and historical sites.Despite an increase in tourist numbers (tourism is the islands' main source of revenue), the islands remain largely uncommercialised and unspoilt with small, personal places to stay and a heavy emphasis on ecotourism. In addition to tourism, the Turks and Caicos economy is based on fishing and offshore financial services.People on the islands known as 'Belongers' are known for their friendly spirit, which will ensure this is a destination that will help people de-stress, feel comfortable and truly relax.
