How To Get To Turks and Caicos

How one gets to Turks and Caicos might seem obvious: Airplane. However, there are numerous ways, including many direct flights from the US. In this post, we’ll touch on each of them while saving the flight information until the end.



Cruise Ship: Six different cruise lines (Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises,Crystal Cruises, Holland America Line,Princess Cruises, and Silversea Cruises) include Grand Turk as a destination during cruises ranging from 5 to 21 days.  Depending on how much excursion time you are permitted you could check out one of the local beaches on Grand Turk or catch a quick 30-minute flight on InterCaribbean Airwaysto Providenciales for a visit to the world famous Grace Bay Beach.



Private Boat: Perhaps you are a sailor at heart and island hopping is your calling.  If so, be sure to include some time in the Turks and Caicos Islands.  Did you know the Turks and Caicos is comprised of approximately 40 islands but only 8 of them are inhabited which leaves plenty of quiet beaches and calm coves to cruise around.  Once you arrive in the islands, be sure to check-in at a port-of-entry.  There are many marinas on Providenciales and Grand Turk, and one each on North Caicos and South Caicos. The harbormaster at the port of entry has the authority to grant entry for one-week.  If you wish to stay longer or cruise among the islands, you must get a Cruising Permit (valid for 90 days), and/or visit one of the immigration offices on Providenciales or Grand Turk.



Airplane: Providenciales International Airport (abbreviation: PLS) is serviced by 5 US airlines, 2 Canadian airlines and 1 European airline.  The first flights start arriving around 9am and these are local flights from nearby Caribbean islands.  The majority of international flights arrive between Noon – 3PM.

Fantastic time in Turks and Caicos ..we were 2 couples for a week at this wonderful condo with a million dollar view . Waking up and having breakfast with that wonderful view was the best. Having the beach right outside your back door was wonderful. Best location . Most relaxing trip ever! Everyone at Coral Gardens made our stay great. We had everything we needed in the condo.  Thanks for a great stay. Looking forward to visiting again.

My husband and I have traveled to many Caribbean Islands and definitely have ranked Turks and Caicos as our favorite!!! Our room at Coral Gardens was very nice and had beautiful views! The condo was also very spacious and was equipped with everything we needed. The whole entire staff was incredible and so eager to make our vacation so relaxing and fun! We had the most fun just spending time every day on the beach snorkeling, swimming and meeting so many nice people from all over the world! Somewhere Café which is right on the property was awesome! The service, food and staff was wonderful!!!

We have been to Turks & Caicos 3 times and have loved it each time. it’s our favorite place to visit. Coral Gardens was a great location and a beautiful property. We had a very nice condo and all the services and amenities you could ever need. The staff at Coral Gardens was wonderful to us and went out of their way to make sure all our needs were met with grace.

Lovely Spacious Condo in a Idyllic Grace Bay Location
5 of 5
The Coral Gardens has the good fortune to be located directly on the best snorkeling reef in Grace Bay, and that central location on Grace Bay is just the beginning. Grace Bay is world renowned for it’s beauty for many good reasons. The warm, crystalline blue waters, the calm surf, the pristine white sands make Grace Bay a “must do” experience. In order to enjoy your stay the accommodations need to be comfortable and relaxing. This Coral Gardens condo has that in spades. The entire facility and beach area was immaculately maintained. The spacious condo was very tastefully decorated, well furnished, and equipped with every necessary item for vacation. The floor plan allowed this one bedroom to live much larger than you would expect.

The property was perfect! The view from room was amazing, overlooking the ocean. Everyone that worked at Corel Gardens was extremely nice and helpful! The location was great. We walked everywhere! Somewhere Cafe was convenient and the food and drinks were really good. The beach was fantastic!! The ocean was gorgeous. We loved having the reef right there. We went snorkeling each day and saw some amazing sea creatures. We will definitely recommend this place! And hope to be back!
