Turks and Caicos
Discover Our Islands
Turks and Caicos has seven main islands in the country and about 40 small islands and uninhabited cays. Providenciales and Grand Turk are home to the majority of the country’s population. Both islands host nearly all of the infrastructure and tourism.
Turks and Caicos History & Culture
Long before Christopher Columbus first set foot on the capital island of Grand Turk during his discovery voyage of the new world in 1492, the islands of the Turks & Caicos were inhabited by Taino and Lucayan Indians. These original settlers left a rich heritage of seafaring, salt raking and farming, which still lingers on today. Words such as “canoe”, Caribbean and “caicos” are derived from the Arawak language. Even the name of the country comes from these earliest inhabitants. Turks is a reference to the indigenous Turk’s head cactus and Caicos is from the Lucayan term “caya hico” meaning string of islands.
