Collection of Destination Weddings in the Turks & Caicos Islands
Grand Turk Island is the capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British colony located just southeast of the Bahamas island chain and 100 miles north of the Dominican Republic. Grand Turk offers an informal, friendly, relaxed pace and is ideal for the vacationer looking to get away from it all. This unspoiled island with its miles and miles of white, sandy beaches is world-renowned for its scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing.
The beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands are situated 575 miles south of Miami and 39 miles south east of Mayaguana in the Bahamas. The thirtysome flat, sun-parched islands, inlets, and cays of Turks and Caicos, a British crown colony, claim a 5,000-square-mile patch of ocean. Most of these sandy specks are uninhabited. Now, Grand Turk, Salt Cay, Pine Cay, Providenciales (Provo), and South, East, West, North, and Middle Caicos, are all expanding their tourist facilities. There are more than two dozen other small islands and cays scattered throughout the archipelago. These uninhabited rocks each exhibit a distinct personality.
