The Turks & Caicos Islands
The beautiful by nature Turks and Caicos Islands are situated just 75 minutes or 575 south east of Miami and cover 193 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean. The Turks and Caicos Islands enjoys excellent air services from the US, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean, as well as reliable domestic services throughout the island chain. Transportation along with the fact that the Turks and Caicos Islands has the third largest coral reef system in the world, together with some of the best tropical beaches has led to the development of a very stable and profitable tourism industry over the last two decades.
The topography of the Turks and Caicos Islands which ranges from limestone plateaus to lush green vegetation, the proximity of the Turks and Caicos Islands to the USA and the advancement of state of the art technology throughout the country means that the business opportunities extend far beyond tourism.
Whilst tourism provides the main revenue, the country is also a major financial services centre, has a fishing industry as well as the world's only
conch farm exporting over 1 million conch a year.
The Turks and Caicos consists of over 40 different islands, 6 inhabited islands and 2 privately developed islands; Parrot Cay and Pine Cay. Several other private Islands are under development, including Ambergris Cay and West Caicos. The islands are diverse, from the main tourist centre of Providenciales to the more tranquil islands of North Caicos and Middle Caicos, to the historic island of Salt Cay, to the capital island Grand Turk and the fishing capital South Caicos. Each island offers a different set of opportunities for investors and different experiences for visitors. The common link between all of them, alongside the friendly people, community spirit and extraordinary beauty is the all-year round great climate. In nature as in business, the TCI never has a rainy season.
