Welcome to Turks and Caicos Islands

A British Crown Colony, Turks and Caicos Islands is a Caribbean paradise comprised of 40 islands and cays located just 575 miles (927 km) southeast of Miami and 55 miles (88 km) southeast of the Bahamas.

With 350 days of sunshine each year, it’s no wonder that Turks and Caicos Islands are one of the fastest-growing travel destinations in the world. Our islands are also surrounded by one of the largest coral reef systems in the world, providing world-class scuba diving and snorkeling.

Despite the growing popularity, the beaches remain uncrowded, the waters and reefs unspoiled, and the welcome is always friendly and genuine.

“Turks and Caicos is now my favorite destination and the hospitality from the staff at The Somerset exceeded my expectations. My wife said this was the best vacation she ever had!”
– Guglielmo I.
