Visitors seeking a bit of culture and history on their holiday will find time on Grand Turk (Turk Island) well spent. Eco-tourists love the tranquil, pristine beauty of North and Middle Caicos. Crystal-clear waters for snorkeling and diving, vivid coral reefs, quiet, gorgeous beaches and a marvelous collection of water sports make beach-centric vacations a prime Turks and Caicos activity. Visitors longing for luxury at Turks and Caicos will find it at many of Providenciales’ grand hotels.
