Linked together by a mile-long causeway, these two small islands offer a totally different side of Turks & Caicos than the one most visitors see on the ‘gateway’ island of Providenciales (Provo).

A short ferry ride from Provo will take you to total peace and quiet. A handful of resorts and guest house cater to those who are content to make do with some beautiful, totally secluded beaches (and not much else). The two islands, North Caicos in particular, are also famous for their bonefishing.
