We’ll introduce you to six reasons why our wonderful archipelago nation is now regarded as the Atlantic Paradise! And if you’re worried about the best time to visit Turks and Caicos, then you’ll be pleased to find incredible weather almost all year round.
1. A Paradise Holding Atlantic's Finest Diving & Snorkeling Spots
A vast and healthy coral reef system with tropical fish abound surrounds the islands of Turks and Caicos. In fact, we’re talking about no less than 340 miles of pristine barrier reef – among the world’s largest! There’s no better place for diving and snorkeling.
You can enjoy other incredible water activities throughout your Turks and Caicos holiday, including kiteboarding, paddle-boarding, parasailing, windsurfing, fishing, and cruising. Make sure you free up your schedule, because there’s always something exciting to do on our beautiful islands!
2. It's Easily Accessible by Air!
First reason to visit Turks and Caicos? You’ll find this hidden heaven southeast of the Bahamas, approx. 570 miles away from Miami!
The gateway islands of Providenciales (Provo) – where you will find Aqua Divna – hosts Turks and Caicos’ only International Airport, which operates regular international flights. Clearly, reaching Atlantic’s island paradise couldn’t have been easier — it’s a mere 1-hour flight from Miami and a 3-hour flight from New York!
3. A Realm of Vast, Splendid, White-Sand Beaches
Perhaps you’ve already heard about our infamous Grace Bay Beach. Yet, we are proud to say that Grace Bay Beach is only one of Turks and Caicos’ many hallmarks and natural wonders. From large, white-sand beaches to offbeat paths and remote coastlines, there’s something new and thrilling to discover in Turks and Caicos.

4. Excellent Weather Almost All-Year-Round
If you’re wondering about the best time to visit Turks and Caicos, the answer depends on a few factors. The 40 cays and islets of Turks and Caicos welcome travelers almost all year round, but some months are better than others.
The high season usually runs from December to March (which means prices tend to be on the high side during this period). On the other hand, February to April is excellent for a spring gateway, while early summer months are best suited for a picture-perfect beach vacation rich in water activities.
The low season starts in June and ends in November. During this time, when you’re likely to run into warmer temperatures and some short, spontaneous showers.
