Located to the southeast of the Bahamas, the Turks & Caicos Islands are made up of eight major islands and numerous uninhabited smaller ones, known as ‘cays’. They are renowned for their numerous white sandy beaches and pristine coral reefs, and are consistently rated among the top ten diving locations in the world. Providenciales, the largest island, is just an hour’s flight from Miami and is well connected with other cities in the US and Europe.
