General Information

General Information


The Turks and Caicos is a small British Overseas Territory found between the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic. Today the islands are self-governing, with British diplomatic representation provided by a resident Governor.

The country is made up of six main inhabited islands and many smaller islands and cays. Providenciales, aka Provo, is 37.5 square miles making it the fourth largest in landmass and the northwestern most island in the Turks and Caicos archipelago. Triton is located on the Southeast tip of Providenciales. The island is by far the most populated, most developed, and the center of tourism. The ambiance of the island is laid back and friendly while also being one of the Caribbean’s most high- end travel destinations.



More than 60% of the 30,000 total country population lives in Providenciales. Thus it has all the conveniences, including an international airport, many car rental companies, a world-class golf course, luxury hotels and resorts, shopping, and many excellent restaurants. The country boasts to have one of the lowest crime rates in the Caribbean. The surrounding waters are protected by a coral reef that rings the islands; so big waves and rough, turbulent surf are rare. In fact, the sea is usually quite gentle and crystal clear with a sandy bottom generally free of rocks.



The tropical climate is hot and arid, with very few days of rainfall per year. Storm season technically lasts from August to October, but during those months, most days are calm, warm, and sunny, as the storms rarely make direct landfall on Providenciales. With very few exceptions, it is safe to say that the forecast for the Turks and Caicos will be bright and sunny.
