The Turks and Caicos Islands are placed in the Atlantic Ocean and considered a part of the Caribbean region. They consist of the larger Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks Islands. The islands have a low number of rain days and a high percentage of sunny skies during a year.
A British Overseas Territory less than two hours from Miami and four hours from New York, the Turks & Caicos is a chain of islands just southeast of the Bahamas. Of the 40 islands and cays that make up the Turks & Caicos (also known as TCI), only eight are populated with over 31,000 citizens and welcome more than 1 million tourists yearly.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are home to various world-class beaches, restaurants, many water activities, a golf course and more — all of which are a short driving distance from the Pearls of Long Bay.
