Have you already decided to visit Turks and Caicos for your holiday this year? Then a charter jet to Turks and Caicos is the best way to travel, ensuring you get to the Turks and Caicos airport nearest to your destination. You’ll save time on transport connections and travel in luxury, arriving refreshed and ready to enjoy your holiday the minute you step off the plane.

On the other hand, if you fancy chartering a private jet for your summer break but don’t know where to go, we’ll start by answering an important question: Where is Turks and Caicos?

Where is Turks and Caicos?

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory. They’re an archipelago of 40 beautiful islands in the Atlantic, considered as part of the Caribbean. It’s an easy trip by private jet from LA to Turks and Caicos, which has helped to make this destination so popular.

The Islands are often just called Turks and Caicos for short. Technically, many are not islands, but cays: isles formed by sand or coral deposited on top of a coral reef. 

Of the 40 Turks and Caicos Islands, only eight are inhabited. They’re separated into two island groups by the Turks Island Passage. To the east are the Turks Islands: Grand Turk and Salt Cay. To the west are the Caicos Islands: South Caicos, Middle Caicos, North Caicos, Providenciales, Pine Cay and Parrot Cay.

What are the Beaches Like?

In short: glorious. If you’re looking for great beaches, Turks and Caicos is definitely the place to go. As you fly to your destination on your private Turks and Caicos jet charter, look down. You’ll see crystal-clear turquoise waters and white, pristine, sandy beaches that stretch on for miles.

The Turks and Caicos have the right beach for everyone. If you want plentiful attractions, restaurants and watersports at your beaches, Turks and Caicos offer the beaches on Providenciales. It’s the archipelago’s most developed island. But if you want peaceful, nearly empty beaches, Turks and Caicos can accommodate that too, with islands like Parrot Cay.
