About Turks and Caicos

The string of islands making up Turks and Caicos includes forty individual islands and coral cays - a joining of two families of islands, as the name suggests, with Grand Turk and Providenciales the respective capitals. The beaches are beautiful, the scuba diving and deep sea fishing are excellent, and the best places to stay in the Turks and Caicos Islands tend to be the luxurious, private island retreats, or maybe one of Grand Turk's charming colonial guesthouses.

The Turks and Caicos are technically a British Overseas Territory, but their currency is the American dollar and they have an American vibe. Well, they are only about 600 miles off Florida. Which carries through into the accommodation - you can find most of the big name American hotel brands here.

Things not to miss:

  • Providenciales' famously beautiful Grace Bay is considered perfect even by Caribbean beach standards and it's long enough to house many hotels and resorts comfortably.
  • The more fertile Grand Turk island houses the traditional capital, being much easier to settle on. This is where you'll find the government buildings and most of the historic sights and most charming architecture.
  • Aside from these two islands, there are a number of others in the forty strong group which are totally uninhabited, and even more where you'll find just a few souls. There is perfect diving and snorkelling conditions just off shore.

The Hotel Guru's pick of the best places to stay in Turks and Caicos are mainly to be found on Grand Turk and Providenciales, but also features a stunning private island paradise.

The Best Places to stay on the Turks and Caicos

For the perfect beach break

  • Parrot Cay is a sublime hotel on an immaculate white beach on its own private island. If that's not enough the rooms and villas are chic, the cuisine is international and the spa is award-winning.
  • The Bohio Dive Resort is obviously geared up for divers, but its position, directly against a pristine, white, sandy beach, means that it's also a great choice for a relaxing beach break. Rooms are whitewashed chic, with private balconies. The Bohio Dive Resort also has its own dive school.
  • The Grace Bay Club is a large, but extremely luxurious resort made up of suites and private beach cabanas, right on Grace Bay.

For great value

  • The Sibonne Beach Hotel is one of the best value hotels on Grace Bay, a small, but lovely, white building with a choice of rooms, suites and apartments - sleeping up to four.
  • The Osprey Beach Hotel on Grand Turk is chic but reasonably priced, with its 37 rooms starting from just £56 per night. Many rooms have private balconies and four poster beds. Just a short stroll through the hotel's garden and you're on the beach.
  • The Salt Raker Inn is a great value little inn in the heart of old Cockburn Town. Well placed for the beach and local dive centres, this is a laid-back but pretty spot with a lovely little verandah restaurant.

For a special occasion

  • Providenciales' Point Grace is a dreamy, romantic spot, with stunning rooms and suites, and even more perfect views from the private balconies. There are just 28 rooms, two fabulous restaurants, a Thalasso spa, a huge pool and direct access to the beach.
  • Amanyara is a spectacular resort which really makes the most of its naturally idyllic beach surroundings with minimalist decor and a focus on large windows and private balconies. It also has the very best when it comes to chefs, bars, massages, butlers, spa facilities and pools.

For pure luxury

  • On a beautiful sandy beach, Gansevoort's prime objective is to provide luxury. Boasting lavish suites, a deluxe spa, a superb restaurant and private beach access, it's a standout hotel. Perfect for an indulgent break on the Turks and Caicos.

For an apartment or beach house

  • For those looking for their own space, we recommend visiting our online partner Booking.com.

Travel Information

  • Providinciales is the international airport gateway to the Turks and Caicos. From there you can connect to any one of the seven island airports.
  • Hurricane season in the Turks and Caicos generally runs from July to September, so it is best to avoid visiting during these months. The islands have a year round temperature in the late 20s, so we would recommend a winter trip from November to April.
  • If you would like to explore the islands by car we recommend our partners Rentalcars
