Discover why they’ve fell in love with Turks and Caicos with these top five reasons you should retreat to our islands for Thanksgiving Holiday.

The Turks and Caicos Islands experience approximately 350 days of sunshine each year. The average temperatures in November are highs of 84° and lows of 77°- perfect beach weather for swimming, snorkeling and diving. The warm, clear waters of Grace Bay are unmatched as evidenced by its awards for the world’s best beach for several years.
