Destinations: Traveling to the Caribbean's Turks & Caicos Islands is indeed a special event. The tropical escape is a favorite hotspot of jetsetters and VIP travelers. The T&C Islands are a wonderful respite for replenishing and rejuvenating. The eight inhabited islands of the Turks and Caicos Islands are located 575 miles southeast of Miami and take up 193 square miles of prime Atlantic property. Aside from plenty of savory fresh seafood entrees, T&C visitors also have myriad water-related recreational activities ranging from scuba diving to dolphin and whale watching to sport-fishing trips to chartering a yacht. The islands possess the third largest coral reef system in the world, making the beaches equally attractive to both active and passive vacationers.
