Turks and Caicos Islands climate overview

The British, Spanish, and French have all previously settled this collection of islands to the southeast of the Bahamas. Today the Turks and Caicos are a crown colony of Britain, although largely responsible for their own internal affairs. Since the collapse of its lucrative salt industry, today's economy relies on offshore financial services, tourism, and fishing.

The archipelago is made up of more than 40 islands and cays, many of which are uninhabited. Beaches are a main attraction here, notably on the island of Providenciales with both developed tourist areas and deserted shoreline, all with blindingly white sand, palm trees, and calm blue sea. Occasionally the coastline becomes rugged enough for bays and coves with impressive caves.

Because of poor soil the interiors of most of the islands are unspectacular and support a mixture of pine trees and scrub. The most interesting features are the occasional creeks, lagoons, and swamps.

Most of the islands are surrounded by coral reefs, which attract an exotic array of marine life, with whales and dolphins in the deeper waters offshore. There are also many shipwrecks, underwater caves, ledges, and walls, making it a popular scuba diving location.

The tropical climate has an extended dry season running from January to August, during which time the islands experience very little cloud. The short wetter season lasts from September to December, although even during these months, the rain is confined to short downpours during the afternoons. There is little seasonal variation in daytime temperatures with the archipelago remaining warm throughout the year. Occasional hurricanes are possible from July to October.
