Where Should I Stay in Turks and Caicos?


The best place to stay in Turks and Caicos depends on your likes and dislikes. To answer this question, we must first tell you a little bit about the geography of the islands.

The Turks and Caicos comprise a chain of over 40 cays and islands.  They are located just 600 miles Southeast of Miami, roughly halfway between the beautiful islands of The Bahamas and The Dominican Republic.

Divided into two main groups of islands called The Caicos and The Turks, the islands are an overseas territory of the United Kingdom.

The Turks group of islands are located to the southeast and comprise Grand Turk Island, Salt Cay, and The Lesser Cays. The Caicos Group is located to the northwest and comprises the six main islands of South Caicos, Middle Caicos, East Caicos, North Caicos, Providenciales, and West Caicos.

Just eight of the 40 islands are inhabited. Of these, over four-fifths of the population of 38,700 people live on just three of the islands. These are South Caicos, Grand Turk, and Providenciales, also called Provo.

Providenciales

Providenciales is the main gateway to the islands. It is located in the Northeast and is a tiny 35 square kilometers in size.

Despite its small size, it has a population of approximately 22,000, which represents 75% of the total population.

The main international airport called Providenciales International Airport (PLS) has its location here, making it very accessible for visitors. In addition, Providenciales is home to some of the world's best beaches and is full of great restaurants and shops. Most of our Villa Rentals Turks and Caicos also have their location in Provo.

Grace Bay Beach

The Turks and Caicos Islands are famous for their beaches, but none are more famous than Grace Bay Beach. Grace Bay Beach is the current "World's Leading Beach Destination," according to the World Travel Awards. It has also been voted the number one beach in the world by many reputable sources such as Trip Advisor and the Traveller's choice awards

The reason for these awards is apparent. The powder white soft sands and the calmness of the waters stand out more than most other beaches in the world. A barrier reef about a mile offshore resulted in the exceptionally soft sand with a hint of pink and the gorgeous crystal-clear calm waters.

The beach is 3 miles long but connected to Leeward Beach to the east and Bight Beach to the west. The total beach spans almost 8 miles from the Northwest Point to Blue Hills, and it's possible to run or walk the entire stretch of the beach should one be feeling energetic.

At Exceptional Villas, we have 77 Grace Bay Beach Ocean Villas, including a range of super-luxury mansions such as Hawksbill Estate and Amazing Grace to some smaller, more affordable, still beautiful villas and condos. It is the location for many of the best beachfront villas on the island.

The North-Eastern end of Grace Bay beach is the most exclusive and is home to some of the most luxurious rental properties in the Caribbean. First, a few villas to check out are our Coral Pavilion, Sentosa, and Seaclusion.

It is little wonder that Grace Bay Villas are amongst some of the best on the island, if not the best in the world.

Grace Bay is also the location for the Top Five Turks and Caicos Villas

Leeward Beach

While not as famous as Grace Bay, Leeward Beach is equally beautiful but with the advantage of having fewer people on it. The beach continues east of Grace Bay and is home to an upscale residential area.

Leeward is the perfect location for guests wishing more peace and privacy yet still close to the action on Grace Bay and the Leeward Chanel. The closeby Leeward Channel is an excellent spot for boating, tubing, wakeboarding, kayaking, and paddleboarding.

Leeward is one of the best beaches in Provo, and the conditions are almost always perfect, with soft white sands and clear waters.

There is very little public access to the beach, which is an excellent advantage to anyone renting one of the 15 beautiful villas that have their location here. Sunset Bay, Blondel Cove, and Cabya Villa are among the best villas on the island.

We highly recommend the Turks and Caicos Villa Rentals on Leeward Beach to anyone who enjoys peace and nature.

Long Bay Beach

Long Bay Beach is another one of Provo's incredible beaches. Located on the island's southside, it is three miles or 4.8 km long.

Long Bay has excellent turquoise crystal clear waters and soft sands like most Turks' beaches. In addition, the waters along Long Bay Beach are very shallow for a reasonable distance offshore, making it an excellent choice for families with small children or nervous swimmers. The beach's location on the Caicos Banks also ensures the beach does not experience any big ocean swells.

So how does Long Bay Compare to Grace Bay? They are both exquisite beaches, but the main difference is in the depth of the waters and the fact that Long Bay is quieter, more zen-like. Long Bay is also the beach for kite-surfing, and when there are good winds, it is not uncommon to see dozens of kites on the waters.

Long Bay is home to some of the best Turks and Caicos Resorts, and our guests love the Shore Club. The villas are exquisite, and the super luxury Shore Club facilities are hard to beat. At Exceptional Villas, we have almost 40 excellent vacation rental options from which to choose from the super-luxury La Dolce Vita to the lovely, affordably priced Sandy Beaches Villa.

Babalau Beach

Babalua Beach, also called Blue Mountain Beach, is between Thompson Cove and Turtle Cove. The beach, 900 meters long, is more secluded than others as Turtle Cove Marina separates it to one side and some sea cliffs to the other.

The beach is not as pristine as other beaches but has a natural beauty and is closer to some of the great snorkeling spots on the island.

Six of our Turks and Caicos Vacation Rentals have their location here, including our very popular Samsara Villa and Mary Jane Villa.

Turtle Tail

Located in the south of Provo, Turtle Tail is one of the most complex parts of the island to reach. It is therefore perfect for a peaceful, tranquil vacation in Turks and Caicos.

Offshore, a few beautiful and tiny islands such as Bristol Cay and Birds Egg Cays ensure stunning views from the vacation homes that line the brilliant turquoise waters. It is also possible to wade to some of these islands and enjoy a picnic or unique experience not found anywhere else on the island.

The area is primarily residential and is the location for some of the island's finest luxury homes. There is virtually no public access to the beach, but each of our beachfront homes in Turtle Tail has its private access.

The villas in Turtle Tail range from huge mansions like Paradiso Del Mar, sleeping up to 20 people, to more modest but still beautiful villas like Sing A Song, sleeping up to 6.

In a nutshell, Turtle Tail is a place for lovers of nature, beauty, and peace.

Sapodilla Bay Beach

Located on the South Coast, close to Chalk Sound, Sapodilla Bay is a 900-foot remote stretch of beach. The beach is calm and clear with shallow waters, making it a perfect destination for families with small children or elderly parents who wish to enjoy the joys of the sea.

The water here is also warmer than most other spots on the island, making it an excellent spot for a sea bath or some "Limin" (the Caribbean word for kicking back and relaxing)

Six of our Luxury Turks and Caicos Luxury Villa Rentals have their location on the beach, including some of our guest's favorite villas, such as La Koubba and Miami Vice.

Taylor Bay Beach

Taylor Bay Beach has its location right beside Sapodilla Bay to the west. It is a stunning sheltered small cove just 2000 feet long. Like Sapodilla Bay, the waters at Taylor Bay are calm, clear, and shallow, primarily protected by the tradewinds from the southeast. These aspects make the bay perfect for small children and nervous swimmers.

Quite a few of our Turks and Caicos Vacation Rentals have their location along the shores of Taylor Bay Beach. Some of our favorites are Villa Vieux Caribe and Villa Alizee.

Turtle Cove

The quaint area of Turtle Cove is a lovely place to visit while on Provo, and it is home to many of our luxury villas. In addition, this cove is a vibrant area with a marina and many activities.

This beautiful location homes clear shallows, pools of water, and turquoise blue reefs. This securely sheltered complex is the largest marina on the island and is home to many water sports businesses, boat cruises, fishing operators, and private vessels of varying sizes.

The beaches here provide the best snorkeling as the waters are crystalline, and the reefs are well-preserved. Chalk Sound is another location that you might visit during your stay here.

Parrot Cay

At Exceptional Villas, we feature an array of Turks and Caicos vacation rentals at Parrot Cay.

The main island of Providenciales, also known as Provo, is the gateway to Parrot Cay, a stunning private island comprising about one thousand acres of land. Parrot Cay is one of the most beautiful and exclusive villa destinations globally, perfect for celebrating special events like weddings.

COMO operates parrot Cay, and we are delighted to represent many of the island's best and most luxurious villas. Some of our featured villas include The Sanctuary and Tamarind Villa.

South Caicos

South Caicos is one of the smallest and most unspoiled islands in Turks and Caicos. Therefore, South Caicos is not for everyone but for people who want to experience complete relaxation, solitude, and exquisite nature. Therefore, it doesn't have extravagant lifestyles, luxury shopping, or casinos.

Saying that, it does have the beautiful Sailrock resort, which was voted the Caribbean's Leading Luxury Island Resort by the World Travel Awards in 2021. Sailrock has its location on a stunning and pristine beach; Sailrock has some equally stunning villas to rent. We are pleased to present 13 of these villas in our Portfolio, with great dining options and an excellent spa.


Turks and Caicos Planning Tips


How to get to Turks and Caicos?

Getting to Turk's and Caicos is relatively simple. There are two main airports on the islands. The international gateway is on Providenciales, and there is a second smaller airport on Grand Turk. The smaller islands also have airports that accept regional traffic.

There is excellent direct access from Miami, New York, Charlotte, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, Toronto, and Montreal. In addition, there is a twice-weekly direct flight from London to Turks and Caicos.

Should you travel to some outer islands, there are plenty of interisland carriers such as Inter Caribbean and Turks and Caicos Express Airways.

What is Turks and Caicos Weather Like?

The islands of Turks and Caicos are lucky to have virtually idyllic weather year-round. In the summer months, between June and October, the average temperatures range between 85° and 90°F (29°-32°C). During the winter months, between November and May, the average temperatures range from 80° to 84°F (27°-29°C).

The summer months experience more rain than the winter and are also more humid. However, unlike in other parts of the world, the rain tends to come in heavy short bursts, and the sun is never too far away.

When is the Best Time to Travel to Turks and Caicos?

The best time to travel is in the winter months between November and April.  The drier winter and slightly cooler months between November and the end of April are the most popular. However, the summer can have fantastic weather too and has the great advantage of offering some exceptional value with prices sometimes half of those in the high season.

The only time to avoid travel to Turks and Caicos is during the hurricane season, from late August to the beginning of October.

What Side of the Road Do They Drive on in Turks and Caicos?

They drive on the left side of the road, the same as the United Kingdom and Ireland. For this reason, we recommend you rent an automatic car.

What Plugs Do They Use in Turks and Caicos?

The islands use 120v and U.S.-style plugs, so if you are traveling from the U.S., there is no need to bring any adaptors.

Visitors from Europe will need to bring adaptors. It is best to purchase these before arrival as they are challenging to find on the islands. However, many of the luxury villas for rent provide clients with adaptors. Please check with our concierge team, who will advise you accordingly.

Do I Need a Car in Turks and Caicos?

Yes, we highly recommend renting a car in Turks and Caicos.  Even though your villa may include an airport transfer, delivery to your villa is possible.

With limited public transport, a car rental gives you the freedom to visit the many beaches, 'off the radar' restaurants and beach bars, and self-drive to golf or other activities on the island.

DO I NEED TO PRE-BOOK RESTAURANTS?

We highly recommend pre-booking to ensure you get your preferred restaurant and time, particularly if you are looking for a sunset setting or prime time in Turks!. Turks and Caicos have an abundance of excellent restaurants from which to choose.  They are all equally in high demand, particularly in high season and around the Holidays.

Should you wish to read more about the best places to eat on the island, take a look at our blog on The Best Turks and Caicos Restaurants.

WHAT IS THE TIPPING POLICY IN TURKS AND CAICOS?

As always, gratuities are at the guest's discretion and reflect the service received.

Feel free to ask our concierge team about the particular villa you are staying in, as each one differs with staff numbers, work hours, etc., and each will provide a guideline as to what is an appropriate tip.

Where do the rich people go in Turks and Caicos?

The rich people go to Grace Bay and Ambergris Cay. Most of the stand-alone mansions are on Grace Bay. Popular amongst these mansions are the Hawksbill Estate and Sentosa.

Ambergris Cay is a 1,100 acre private island in the South East Corner of Turks and Caicos.

Emerald Cay is a villa that’s very popular with our affluent clientele. It’s in Provo and is both private and exquisite.

Why are Turks and Caicos so Blue?

Turks and Caicos is so blue because the clear sea water over white, sandy beaches reflect the blue sky.

The islands are home to one of the world's best barrier reefs. There are 340 miles of barrier reefs surrounding the Islands. These reefs create spectacular beaches with the finest white sands and shallow calm waters around the island.

When the sun shines in Turks and Caicos, as it generally does, the combination of clear water and white sands reflects the blue colour of the sky.

VIP FAST-TRACKING

Fast track is available at Providenciales airport for both arrival and departure flights. With this service, you will be greeted on arrival (or curbside for departure) and assisted with customs and immigration for arrival, avoiding long, unwelcome queues.

VIP Flyer Services offers a time-saving express service through Providenciales International Airport (PLS) security (departure only) with lounge access. When departing Turks and Caicos, you will be met at the curb and expressed through security and directly into the VIP Flyers lounge, where you can enjoy a wide range of VIP amenities while you wait to board your flight. The VIP lounge allows a maximum of 4 guests at a time.

There is little doubt that Turks and Caicos is a luxury destination, and most of the rental accommodation is in the super luxury bracket, but there are options for everyone.

When you contact our team, they will work with you to match the perfect vacation rental for your requirement and budget.
