Visit Turks and Caicos
Best Time To Go
Sunny, even temperatures make the Turks and Caicos islands a year-round destination, although travelers should be aware that hurricane season lasts from June to November. You’ll get better hotel rates (and fewer crowds) during hurricane season—the rain is sporadic and manageable. If you do visit in low season, do your best to plan your meals ahead of time, as a few bars and restaurants are bound to be closed for renovations.
There are taxis on the island, but the best way to get around is by renting a car, which is available at the airport. The British Overseas Territory follows the U.K system and drives on the left side of the road, so give yourself some time to get used to it.
August and September are the hottest months, with an average high of 88°F (31°C). January and February are the coldest months, with an average low of 73°F (23°C).
Know Before You Go
The Turks and Caicos are a chain of 40 islands that include Providenciales (the most populated island) as well as Grand Turk, Middle Caicos, South Caicos, and more. There are two airports—on Providenciales and Grand Turk—but most travelers fly in to Providenciales. For trips to the other islands, charter a boat or go with an operator like Silver Deep or Island Vibes.
