Turks and Caicos Holidays
Turks and Caicos Islands or TCI for short, consist of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands. The Turks and Caicos Islands lie southeast of the Bahamas and north of Dominican Republic. There are 40 islands and cays, 8 of which are inhabited.
With constant easterly trade winds providing cooling breezes, temperatures remain very enjoyable in Turks and Caicos Islands. Winter temperatures, November to May, average 25°C (77°F ) with daytime highs of 29°C (85°F) and night time lows of 18°C (65°F). Summer months, June to October average 31°C (88°F). Daytime highs can reach 35°C (95°F) with night time temperatures dropping to24°C (75°F). Humidity is low. Hurricane season runs from June to end of November.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are a biodiversity hotspot. There are many endemic species and others of international importance, due to the conditions created by the oldest established salt-pan development in the Caribbean. The variety of species includes a number of endemic species of lizards, snakes, insects and plants, and marine organisms, in addition to being an important breeding area for seabirds. 170 species of bird can be found in the Turks and Caicos Islands from Pelicans and Flamingos to Osprey and Cuban Crows
Providenciales is the most well known of the Turks and Caicos Islands and is the centre for tourism, with a wide choice of hotels, restaurants, attractions and facilities. Grand Turk and Salt Cay offer a glimpse into the past, with great Bermudian architecture and a rustic charm, as well as having some of the best diving and probably the most “relaxing” time you will ever have.
Middle Caicos and North Caicos represent the best of the environment, with lush green woodlands, the biggest cave network in the Caribbean on Middle Caicos, cottage pond and flamingo pond in North Caicos and a vast range of plant life and birdlife. North Caicos is also an up and coming resort destination with several new projects under development.
South Caicos is the centre for fishing, with lobster and conch exported from the islands, the historic Cockburn harbour and the natural phenomenon of the boiling hole. This small yet friendly island offers many private beaches with amazing views over the sea and surrounding islands. West Caicos is a 9 square mile island that is currently uninhabited. It is said to have the most beautiful diving spots in Turks and Caicos islands.
