Fun Facts About Turks & Caicos

Conch is the biggest export in Turks & Caicos. The amount of conch in Turks & Caicos is absolutely crazy. The shells are beautiful and the meat is quite tasty! We recommend trying it at Da Conch Shack, you will not be disappointed.

The Turks & Caicos Islands are an archipelago of 40 coral islands just south of the Bahamas. There’s a reason the world “islands” is plural in Turks and Caicos Islands! There are tons of tiny islands (and big islands) that make up this gorgeous destination. We highly recommend taking advantage of the many little islands and spending a romantic day on one of the many deserted islands!

Providenciales is home to the world’s only commercial conch farm. You already know conch is their biggest export, but did you know there was such a thing as a conch farm? Well there is, and Providenciales is home to the only commercial one in the world!

You can take shelter dogs for a beach day. Potcake Place, a local non-profit organization in Turks & Caicos allows visitors to stop in and take a dog out to the beach.  The potcake dogs, which are dogs born in The Bahamas or Turks & Caicos, are constantly in need of socialization and of course, adoption. Stop by and take one of these cuties out for a day at the beach. If you’d like more information on taking a potcake dog for a walk, you can visit their website for everything you’d need to know.

Have our fun facts about Turks & Caicos convinced you it’s the place for you? Or maybe you just want to take one of the adorable little potcakes for a day at the beach. Whatever your reason, head over to our Turks & Caicos deals page to check out our awesome vacation packages!
