Located at the southern tip of the Bahamas chain, the Turks & Caicos islands with their spectacular white sand beaches, turquoise sea and friendly people, offer a luxuriously tranquil retreat. Boasting a coral reef system stretching 200 miles long, the region attracts divers keen to explore this colourful underwater world. Turks and Caicos holidays between January and April may be punctuated by the sight of humpback whales as they take their annual migration to Mouchoir Bank, just to the south east of the islands.
A Turks and Caicos holiday with Abercrombie & Kent is the best way to explore and absorb the islands' fascinating diversity.
Many of the smaller islands and cays are now protected habitats for wildlife including iguanas and turtles and are well worth exploring during your holiday. With 210 square miles of protected wetlands, flamingos, pelicans and ospreys are just a few of the 170 bird species that can be found throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Of the 40 islands that make up Turks and Caicos, only eight are inhabited. Legend has it that Parrot Cay was formerly known as Pirate Cay as it was here that female pirate Anne Bonny stayed in the 1720s. The treasure on this island is now a 1,000 acre private island hideaway.

We had an outstanding guide, Mr Upali Guneratne. His expert knowledge about the temples and ancient sites we visited, Sri Lankan history and customs, and the Island’s flora and wildlife made it a memorable experience for us both.
