The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI/tɜːrks/ and /ˈkkəskskɒs/) are a British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago of the Atlantic Ocean and northern West Indies. They are known primarily for tourism and as an offshore financial center. The resident population is 31,458 as of 2012 of whom 23,769 live on Providenciales in the Caicos Islands. It is the third largest of the British overseas territories by population.

The Turks and Caicos Islands lie southeast of Mayaguana in the Bahamas island chain, northeast of Cuba, and of the island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic) and the other Antilles archipelago islands. Cockburn Town, the capital since 1766, is situated on Grand Turk Island about 1,042 kilometers (647 mi) east-southeast of Miami, United States. The islands have a total land area of 430 square kilometers (170 sq mi).

Beaches Turks & Caicos Review by UK Family

My family and I (husband, two girls ages 8 & 11) have now traveled to Beaches Turks & Caicos (BTC) five times from the UK.

We have added on other cities to the trip but love returning to this resort. Below I’m sharing our Beaches Turks & Caicos review for your next family adventure!
