Turks and Caicos: A Snapshot
With dream-inducing blues and sugar-white sands that stretch for miles, Turks and Caicos effortlessly puts the Maldives to shame.
Boasting the number one beach in the world, this shimmering archipelago of largely untouched islands strikes a delicate balance between desire and exclusivity:
Topping the list of luxury travel’s most coveted destinations, it remains one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets, and may just be the closest thing to paradise on Earth.
Still need more reasons to showcase Turks and Caicos auction travel packages at your next fundraiser event?
Well, we’ve got plenty.
Key Destination Info
The gem of the Caribbean’s tropical Atlantic, Turks and Caicos is made up of 40 glimmering islands and cays, the most popular of which is Providenciales.
Sheltered by its Barrier Reef, the Turks and Caicos Islands – or TCI for short – are blessed with bathwater-clear beaches, shocking hues of blue, and some of the world’s most heavenly views.
Tucked away in the Antilles, this British Overseas Territory promises a tantalizing taste of paradise far from the bustle of its Bahamian and Dominican neighbors – yet just a short hop from Miami.
When to Visit
With warm trade winds and daily temps that never dip below 75° F, there’s no bad time for charity trip winners to visit these alluring islands.
While peak season spans December to April, the best time to travel is between April and June. That’s when temperatures hover at a balmy 84° F - 87° F and the holiday crowds have thinned.
August to September offers blissfully empty beaches and luxurious private villas for less but comes with a risk of hurricanes – a worthy wager to get paradise all to yourself.
From British loyalists to pirates, freed slaves, and native Taíno ancestry, Turks and Caicos has one of the Caribbean’s most varied cultural legacies.
Nowhere is this better expressed than the Islands' traditional Ripsaw music, mouthwatering seafood cuisine, and cultural celebrations, from carnival-style Junkanoo parades to its annual Conch Festival.
With a laid-back Caribbean feel, US currency, and strong British ties (cricket is the National Sport), these islands aren’t afraid to mix things up.
At the heart of it all? An unapologetic appreciation for life in the slow lane.
Each individual island is so distinct and unique when it comes to the feel, authenticity, cuisine, activities, and history, which makes the destination very special.
What Donors Will Love
World’s Best Beaches
With the number one beach in the world, TCI effortlessly puts the rest of the Caribbean’s shores to shame. Here natural beauty is synonymous with bliss and beachside lounging is a way of life.
While iconic Grace Bay Beach snags the coveted top spot, donors are spoiled for choice on every island.
From picture-postcard Sapodilla and Taylor Bay to secluded Parrot Cay, donors can expect the same heavenly views: powder white sands that dissolve into crystal-clear water and blues that hover between turquoise and aquamarine.
The best part? With over 200 miles of pristine shoreline, charity trip winners can pick any slice of paradise and never feel crowded.
If we go to the beach and see another person, we vex! We have lots of beaches around, so we can all have our own. We're spoiled.
A balm for donors looking to escape the Caribbean party scene, TCI offers nature at its most pristine.
With 340 miles of breathtaking barrier reef home to tropical fish, turtles, dolphins, and rays, these islands are teeming with underwater wonders to discover.
