Things to do in Turks and Caicos
With more than 230 miles of white-sand beaches and some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs, the Turks and Caicos islands are arguably the hidden gems of the Caribbean. Only a 90-minute plane ride from Miami, these tropical islands nonetheless feel lost in time: Here, you'll find historic villages barely touched by tourism and crystal-clear waters full of marine life, plus pristine beaches perfect for spending long, relaxing days.
Resort Perfect for Snorkelling
As the only 4-Star Providenciales resort in Turks and Caicos, Windsong Resort offers the perfect opportunity for families to enjoy hours of snorkelling together. Teaching your children how to snorkel in advance of your vacation can mean happier kids, happier parents, lasting memories and great underwater photos.
Resort Life is Better on Grace Bay
The addresses in Turks and Caicos lack the typical street numbers. You may find an address that simply states "old Airport Road" or "behind Glass shack" and so on. Street signs are slowly being added and you may have to rely on landmarks to reach a desired location.
