Fodor's Caribbean Cruise Ports of Call
Plan Your Turks and Caicos Islands Vacation
The turquoise-color water in the Turks and Caicos is almost electric. Don't be surprised if you wake up on your last morning and realize you never strayed far from the beach or those mesmerizing views. Although ivory-white, soft, sandy beaches and breathtaking turquoise waters are shared among all the islands, the landscapes are a series of contrasts, from the dry, arid bush and scrub on the flat, coral islands of Grand Turk, Salt Cay, South Caicos, and Providenciales to the greener, foliage-rich undulating landscapes of Middle Caicos, North Caicos, Parrot Cay, and Pine Cay.
