The Turks and Caicos Islands have some of the best fishing waters in the world, whether you’re searching for classic rod and reel fishing, bonefishing, deep-sea fishing, or catching conch and lobster.

Witness the Wildlife

While many Turks and Caicos getaways focus on luxury resorts and water activities, there are plenty of opportunities for guests to take in the island’s natural beauty while also learning about the island’s wildlife and ecosystems.

Sea Turtles

Turks and Caicos wildlife includes the sea turtle, a fascinating creature that is a key connection to a healthy environment, in addition to the pure blue ocean and white sand beaches that make these islands a top holiday destination. Green sea turtles, the hawksbill, and loggerhead turtles are all species found in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Some of the best snorkeling in Turks and Caicos provides you with spectacular wildlife experiences, such as swimming with sea turtles.

Dolphins

Most people visualize majestic dolphins swimming over the pure blue waters when they think of a tropical island getaway. There are no exceptions in the Turks and Caicos Islands! A diverse range of species thrives in a beautiful marine habitat, providing a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable experience for those who embark on a snorkeling trip or boat charter.

Small pods of five to ten dolphins can be seen all over the Turks and Caicos Islands. Dolphin sightings are most common near Providenciales and North Caicos, off Grace Bay and the cays between Providenciales and North Caicos, and outside the barrier reef off Providenciales.

Flamingos

The flamingos of Turks and Caicos are one of the various types of popular wildlife. Flamingos are graceful and curious species found in various parts of the islands. The three primary regions of Turks and Caicos where flamingos can be found are Providenciales, North Caicos, and South Caicos. Flamingos can be seen in other parts of the islands throughout the year, some that may only be accessible by boat.

Indulge in Local Cuisine

Before the tourism industry took off in the Turks and Caicos, the local cuisine used very basic ingredients. Most dishes featured seafood such as queen conch, fish, and lobster as the main ingredient, with sides of hot rice with beans or peas and locally grown mixed greens and vegetable sides. While traditional fish stews and pan-fried conch fritters remain popular, conch salad and breaded and fried conch fritters have become a major cuisine of the Turks and Caicos. When traveling to any destination, trying local cuisines should be at the top of your itinerary. As they always say, “go where the locals go” and try some of the fantastic local Caribbean cuisines at local restaurants like: 

  • Da Conch Shack
  • Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl 
  • Mr. Grouper’s
  • Omar’s Beach Hut

Some of the best local eats are from the many food trucks and small shops located around the islands.
