Cheap flights from Turks and Caicos Islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands is the collective name for the British Overseas Territory comprising of two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago: Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks Islands. The two are separated by the Turks Island Passage. The islands are considered as a biodiversity hotspot, with many endemic species, but are known primarily for tourism and as an offshore financial centre. The capital is Cockburn Town, which is located on Grand Turk Island.

Where to go

Bird Watching - Resident and migratory birds can be found in the salt ponds and inland marshes, which serve as their feeding grounds, and in over twelve small protected cays that serve as breeding grounds. About 170 bird species have been recorded to be spotted in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Flamingos, pelicans, Cuban crows, osprey, tern's boobies, and even the rare West Indian Whistling-Duck can be found all over the islands.

Caicos Conch Farm - Ever heard of the Queen Conch? Scientifically called Lobatus gigas, it is a species of large edible sea snail and a national symbol of Turks and Caicos Islands. In fact, it is one of the three symbols in the nation's flag, along with the spiny lobster and a Turk's Head cactus. It doesn't matter if you have never seen, tasted, or even heard of the Queen Conch, as visitors can head on over to the Caicos Conch Farm in Providenciales, the world's only conch farm that welcomes visitors, to learn more about these creatures. Small guided groups are taken on a 30-minute tour to know more about the life cycle of the Queen Conch.

Sapodilla Bay - The Sapodilla Bay is a 900-ft long stretch of beach located off the south coast of Providenciales, near Chalk Sound. Because the water is shallow and calm, Sapodilla Bay is the perfect beach for those with small children. The clear waters are a definite plus, but visitors are expected not to litter to keep it that way. Despite its beauty, crowds never seem to accumulate in Sapodilla Bay.

Turks and Caicos Islands is very near the United States of America, hence some of its short-haul destinations are in the Land of the Free. Atlanta has quite some unique tourist attractions; one of these is the permanent exhibition called the World of Coca-Cola, which features the history of The Coca-Cola Company and its advertisements, as well as entertainment areas. Also visit the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, High Museum of Art, Fox Theatre, Jimmy Carter Library and Museum, and many others.
