Sun-drenched beaches, stunning waters so clear you will not believe your eyes and surrounded by the most vibrant coral reefs. Swaying palm trees, tranquil landscapes and bustling towns with the most delicious local cuisines – all this and more awaits you at Turks & Caicos.
Arguably one of the best-kept secrets of the Caribbean, escape to a tropical paradise of your very own this season when chartering a luxury yacht through Turks & Caicos. Vastly untouched, this beautiful island chain consists of two island groups, each surrounded by the third largest coral reef in the world. The perfect haven for wildlife and nature lovers, imagine spending your days relaxing on the sundeck of a charter yacht, such as the beautiful 55m Turquoise, during a tropical getaway.
Picture you, your friends and your family soaking up the sunshine in utter privacy on the sunpads or in the jacuzzi before breaking out the water toys and snorkelling along the colourful coral reefs. Teeming with an abundance of marine life, from angelfish to parrotfish, you may even come face to face with one of the most ancient swimmers of them all – the sea turtle!
The main island of Grand Turk is famous for its magnificent scuba diving spots and its spectacular array of historical buildings and sites. With plenty of activities to enjoy in the water, as well as on land, these islands offer something for everyone.
History buffs will love learning more about the history of Turks & Caicos and the colonisation of the region. Famous for its salt production, salt was a valuable commodity during the early 1700s. Three islands in the country, Grand Turk, South Caicos and Salt Cay, were used for the organised production of salt by the British Colonials. Learn more about the past of salt production by visiting the famous Salt Cay, where the inlets that connect the salinas to the ocean can still be seen. Take in some colonial architecture by visiting the historical Harriott White House, which was used for storage and was the residence of the Harriott Family.
If you are looking to see some more of the island’s wild side, the region is also home to a broad range of species, from the bright flamingo to untamed horses, as much of the area is protected. The island of Providenciales has eight protected areas, including three national parks, three nature reserves, and two protected historical sites where an impressive diversity of landscapes can be enjoyed.
North Caicos also houses the world’s only conch farm, where visitors can learn more about the industry while sampling some legendary local dishes. Providenciales, also known as Provo to the locals, offers an endless list of world-class restaurants, cafes and bars to visit, perfect if you enjoy tasting and sampling new, exotic and local dishes. Combining the best of a laid-back lifestyle with refined luxury and tropical escape, there is no better way to explore this island chain than by charter yacht. So why not create memories that will last a lifetime this season by exploring Turks & Caicos via a luxury charter.
