Turks & Caicos Destination Information

Check Out the Hottest Caribbean Destination Because of COVID-19

Did you know that since the beginning of the pandemic, Turks and Caicos have seen a 303% increase in the number of travelers from the United States, as reported by Squaremouth? The report also noted for the first time, Turks and Caicos is the fastest-growing international destination, making it the fifth most popular destination overall, up from 60th in 2019. While The Bahamas had been the most popular destination for United States citizens the past decade, it was surpassed by Turks and Caicos following the COVID-19 pandemic.

So what is making Turks and Caicos such a popular destination? A recent Travel Pulse story about Turks and Caicos explains why the islands are in such demand. Turks & Caicos is arid compared with other Caribbean destinations; the island receives less than 50 inches of rainfall annually and generally lacks the lush landscape found across other Caribbean nations. Still, the islands are consistently favored by sunshine and cooling breezes, and the beaches rank with the Caribbean’s best. The Turks & Caicos’ primary appeal is its status as a mostly undiscovered and not overly developed tourism destination.

While visiting these two beautiful islands, tourists can experience the following activities:

Enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean

Many consider Turks and Caicos’ beaches and water to be the most beautiful in the world. While visiting the world-renowned beaches, travelers can enjoy exquisite reefs for diving and snorkeling, extensive marine wetlands that are perfect for kayaking and birdwatching, and incredible coastal environments.

Participate in all the water sports you can dream of

While enjoying the beaches, why not try the following water sports scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, jet skiing, tubing, flyboarding, and sailing, to just name a few. Turks and Caicos have always had an excellent reputation for scuba diving, supported by some of the best wall diving in the Atlantic.

Try some deepwater fishing

Turks and Caicos provide perfect conditions for deep sea fishing in all of the Caribbean. There’s a range of private fishing charters to choose from, with vessels ranging from large and luxurious sportfishing boats to smaller and fast wahoo boats.

Wide variety of land sports and activities to choose from

You can experience horseback riding, cycling, golf, ATV tours, and tennis. One thing that many do not know about Turks and Caicos is that it’s home to a vast array of birds, such as flamingos, herons, egrets, pelicans, West Indian whistling duck, peregrine falcon, and the frigatebird.
