The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory consisting of two groups of tropical islands in the West Indies, the larger Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks Islands known for tourism and as an offshore financial centre.
Some 80 minutes southeast of Miami, off the Florida Keys are the Turks & Caicos Islands. Often referred to as TCI for short, this small quaint British Dependent Territory south of the Bahamas has grown to become a vacation and retirement Mecca for North Americans. More and more North Americans are opting to invest in a second leisure home in the Turks & Caicos Islands to truly get away from it all and enjoy 12 months of endless summers.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are situated 575 miles (925 km) southeast of Miami and 39 miles (63 km) south east of Mayaguana in the Bahamas. Covering 193 square miles (500 km2) of the Atlantic ocean, Turks and Caicos Islands has one of the longest coral reefs in the world, making it a premier diving destination. The islands are geographically contiguous to the Bahamas, but are politically a separate entity.
The islands have a total population of about 30,000, of whom approximately 22,500 live on Providenciales in the Caicos Islands. Cockburn Town, the capital, is situated on Grand Turk Island.
