Getting There

Turks and Caicos is easily accessed by plane and if you are a citizen or legal resident of the United States, United Kingdom, or Canada then visas are not required as Turks and Caicos is a British Overseas Territory. Most major airlines fly to Turks and Caicos and all international flights arrive at Providenciales International Airport (PLS). If you wish to visit one of the other islands, then you will need take a domestic flight out of Providenciales from one of the local airlines.

Some companies also offer cruises which stop at Turks and Caicos. All Cruises currently dock at the Grand Turk Cruise Ship Centre. This is the only island to have a cruise ship port.

Culture

Here in Turks and Caicos we are very proud of our local culture. On Thursday’s from 5:30pm to 9:30pm at the Bight (Children’s) Park, on Providenciales, over a dozen local food vendors, entertainers and cultural acts come together to celebrate life on the islands. “Island fish fry” is an evening of fun and entertainment for the whole family. Restaurants come from all corners of the Island to offer up some of the finest local cuisine and there is a wide range of entertainment offered from local bands to youth acts and local demonstrations.
