Located just south of the Bahamas and a short flight from Miami, Turks and Caicos comprise of approximately 40 stunningly beautiful coral islands (8 of which are inhabited). These islands are also some of the most exclusive and luxurious destinations in the Caribbean.
The capital of Turks and Caicos is on Grand Turk which is the most eastern isle. It is called Cockburn Town. All the islands are virtually flat and sit on top of an underwater plateau which also ensures that Turks and Caicos has some of the best Marine Parks in the world.
The main Turks and Caicos island from a tourism point of view is Providenciales. Most of the island’s population of 22,000 people live on Providenciales. It is also the westernmost isle. This is where the famous beach called Grace Bay Beach is located. The beach which is 3 miles (4.8 kilometres) long is truly one of the most exquisite in the Caribbean with perfect soft white sand and crystal clear waters. This is also where you will find many of our luxury villa rentals in Turks and Caicos. Some of our favourite standalone villas on seven mile beach include Amazing Grace, Saving Grace, and Sugar Kube.
In addition we have some exquisite luxury Turks and Caicos villas located on Grace Bay. They have the advantage of having all the space and luxury of a villa but with access to amazing communal facilities such as spas, pools, kids clubs, restaurants, bars and fitness facilities. The one thing they all have in common is that they will have been personally inspected by us and they will all have to reach the Exceptional criteria to be featured with us. Some of our favourite Turks and Caicos rental properties are located in the Somerset on Grace Bay, The Palms, the Sailrock resort and the super modern and contemporary Gansevoort.
The main island of Providenciales is also the gateway to Parrot Cay which is a stunning private island comprising of about one thousand acres of land. This is one of the most beautiful and exclusive villa destinations in the world. Parrot Cay is operated by COMO and we are very pleased to represent many of the best and most luxurious villas on the island. Some of our featured villas include The Sanctuary and Tamarind Villa.
The islands are charming and very unspoiled with beautiful powdery white sandy beaches, endless crystal clear turquoise waters, nature reserves and several beautiful national parks. Turks and Caicos is one of the best places in the Caribbean to enjoy a tropical sunset and it also has several hundred kilometres of beautiful colourful coral reefs making it a superb choice for anyone who likes scuba diving, snorkelling and water sports.
Turks and Caicos is also well known for its varied sea and wildlife. It is a great playground for dolphins, iguanas and ospreys. The sea passage called Turks Head Passage which divided the islands into two groups is also the transit point for migrating humpback whales which may often be spotted every year from January through April.
