Narrowing down the reasons to head over to TCI for a vacation to just five is no easy task, after all the country itself is made up of four times that many islands. That said, to give those thinking of making the Turks and Caicos Islands their next holiday destination as well as those unfamiliar perhaps with the paradise that is TCI a taste of what TCI has to offer, here are five of the most popular reasons why tourists to Turks and Caicos often end up becoming regular TCI holiday makers.


The Resorts

To ensure you pick a location that is well situated to enjoy all of TCI’s best loved and most popular attractions, opt to stay at a resort located in Providenciales  such as the Alexandra Resort.

By far one of the best value luxury resorts in the Grace Bay locale, the Alexandra Resort is also a particularly worthy choice because its location, range and wealth of suites, packages and amenities mean that whether you are a lone traveller, couple making a romantic getaway or family looking for somewhere with everything you could possibly need or want (and far more besides) onsite, the Alexandra has it.

To see for yourself what a tropical Caribbean luxury resort and even one boasting to provide the best value for money of all TCI resorts, provides in terms of location and as well luxury, head over to the Alexandra Resort website.

The Beaches

According to the Guardian Newspaper article: Which Summer Holiday Destinations Do Brits Search for Most?, over half of British holiday makers searching for a summer holiday look for beach locations.

Despite being an island country, it is perhaps a lifetime spent trying to love shingle beaches, grey waters and often greyer skies that has Brits dreaming of crystal clear waters and white sands. This desire to jet off to somewhere boasting great shores and coastlines is also perhaps why more and more Brits are opting to vacation in Turks and Caicos.

Home to the world’s best beach, as voted as such numerous times now in the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, Provo’s Grace Bay Beach is, well, the best on earth thanks to the year round sun Turks and Caicos enjoys being situated in the Caribbean and fact that having the world’s third largest barrier reef system this works to naturally keep its sands pristine.

Natural Beauty

Not only can those heading over to TCI look forward to a casual kayak through its bountiful mango groves, a trip to Little Water Cay (an astonishing uninhabited island populated entirely by once endangered rock iguanas) and to discovering some of the world’s most awe inspiring coast lines, shores, bluffs and beaches, that is just scratching the surface of what TCI has to offer in turns of awe-inspiring natural attractions. To explore even more and as well discover TCI’s national parks and areas of breathtaking natural beauty, head over to the Visit TCI website.

The Cuisine

Turks and Caicos cuisine is as lush, vibrant, fresh and delicious as its weather, landscapes and culture, making it a fantastic destination for foodies looking for a unique holidaying experience.

The national emblem of TCI being the conch, this humble shell fish is something you can find in many guises on most of the menus of TCI’s restaurants, whether opting for a fine dining experience at the likes of Fire & Ice located at the Blue Haven Resort or a more laid back lunch at the famously cool and chilled out Da Conch Shack and Rum Bar in Providenciales.

What is more, and as stated via the aforementioned Visit TCI website: ‘It’s commonly said that San Francisco is the city with the most restaurants per household in the United States (at 39.3 restaurants per 10,000 households). However, the Turks and Caicos Islands easily surpasses the Fog City with a ratio of 74.6 restaurants per 10,000’. Then and suffice to say, the wealth of choice of both places to eat and cuisines to try whilst in TCI really does mean that Turks and Caicos is not only a tropical paradise, but a food lovers one as well.

Family Fun

A real life treasure island, Turks and Caicos makes a fantastic and unique destination for a family holiday. Whilst the grownups can bask in the year round sun enjoyed on TCI and which makes planning a summer and sunny holiday around school times and holidays easy, there is so much to be enjoyed as a family.

Whether it is a relaxed seaside holiday in a tropical location and building sandcastles on the beach, taking an educational island hopping tour and soaking up some history (did we mention TCI was once a favoured place amongst pirates and rum runners?) or some serious sports and truly active activities that get your family going, TCI has it all.

Then, to get planning the perfect family holiday in TCI and make sure you don’t miss out on its museums, natural attractions, places of importance and as well taking part in some fantastic sporting activities and exciting excursions, begin your adventure before leaving home by continuing your exploration of TCI via the Official TCI Tourism website.
