Turks & Caicos: Boatsetter’s Favorite Year-round Travel Destination
Bright sun, white sand, and turquoise water… this chain of islands is an aquamarine dream you must sea for yourself
Located at the Southern tip of the Bahamian Archipelago, Turks & Caicos is a chain of 40 unique islands in the Atlantic Ocean. This sparsely populated chain of islands includes Providenciales -the gateway island-, Grand Turk, Middle Caicos, South Caicos, and many more including 8 that are only inhabited by palm trees and wildlife. Known as “the last of the true exotics”, the islands are home to crystal white beaches which create an iridescent appearance in the water that is only amplified by the warm sun that beams down year-round. With almost perfect weather, the dreamy Turks and Caicos islands are what make it an ideal destination for travelers located anywhere throughout the year and Boatsetter’s, of course. Although there is a brief hurricane season that spans from the beginning of June through November, do not let the slim chance of in-climate weather put a damper on your travel plans here. In fact, fewer crowds and cheaper hotel rates are an advantage of traveling to these islands during the offseason. Travelers can expect average temperatures of 88°F (31°C) in August and September, and an average low of 73°F (23°C) in January and February.
