The Turks and Caicos Islands in General.

Located in the British West Indies. The Turks and Caicos Islands lies east of the Bahamas, north of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, and 575 miles southeast of Miami. The Turks and Caicos Islands contains about forty islands and cays that comprise the chain. But only eight are inhabited of these islands. The habitat islands are are Salt Cay, Grand Turk, South Caicos, East Caicos, Middle Caicos, North Caicos, West Caicos and Providenciales.

Unmarred by over-development, these eight offer the best of the Caribbean: the third largest coral reef in the world !. The Turks and Caicos Islands has 230 miles of white sand beaches and warm turquoise waters.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are atypical for a Caribbean country. You won’t see any fast-food franchises anywhere. Rumor has it that Kentucky Fried Chicken tried to open a restaurant in the mid 1990s. After KFC spent over a million dollars, the government closed the place down. And at my knowledge, there is no fast food restaurant on Turks and Caicos. Then again, who wants to sail a tropical island and have ‘diner’ a fast food restaurant.

The islands have no bowling alley, much to the chagrin of residents from other Caribbean countries. And aside from activities for tourists, the place gets pretty sleepy by 9pm. But the party can go on till dawn if you want to !. That means everything is possible when you set foot on one of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Is Sailing The Turks and Caicos Islands worth a visit ?.

If you prefer tranquility to crowds, then Sailing The Turks and Caicos is perfect for you !. The islands follow Eastern Standard Time and the US dollar is their official currency. So travelers coming from the U.S. will find the transition to island culture a particularly easy one. The locals call themselves ‘ belongers ‘ of the islands. Most of the people who live in the Turks and Caicos Islands are African descendants and their native language is English. This makes communication with the locals much easier. You are also rewarded by the locals by visiting the Turks and Caicos Islands when you anchor one of the islands. They do this by their friendliness and adapting you to their unhurried pace, or “island time.”.

The Climate of The Turks and Caicos Islands.

You can expect ranges between 85 and 90 degrees or 29 to 32 degrees temperatures when you visit the islands. And in October you can expect a nice temperature in the range above 90 degrees or somewhere around 35 degrees Celsius. When it comes to water temperatures, you can expect degrees between 80 and 84 or 27 to 29 degrees Celsius during summer time. Keep in mind that The Turks and Caicos has about 350 days of sunshine in a year !. But there is also some rain that you can expect and that is between 21 inches and 40 inches a year.
