The low-lying Turks and Caicos are an archipelago of more than 40 coral islands forming the south-eastern end of the Bahamas chain. These islands are a charming and unspoiled destination with national parks, beautiful white sand beaches, nature reserves, sanctuaries and British colonial history. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Turks and Caicos Islands:
- For exquisite turquoise waters, explore Chalk Sound National Park. This 5km long bay by Providenciales has several tiny islets and has some of the clearest blue water on the island.
- Practice yoga at Parrot Cay, an award winning Shambhala retreat designed to improve health and wellbeing. After a morning’s yoga workshop, relax in one of the Japanese baths.
- For diving enthusiasts, head to the northwest point on Providenciales for a brilliant dive site, where you can spot eels and many other fish.
- Explore the northern shores of the Turks and Caicos Islands by Kayak, encircling its islets in safe, clear waters.
- Journey to Salt Cay, a tiny island south of Grand Turk. Salt Cay is part of the Humpback whales winter migratory route.
