Turks and Caicos consists of 40 different islands and cays, only 8 of which are inhabited. The beaches on this island chain are pristinely beautiful thanks to the third-largest coral reef system on the planet. The reefs surround Turks and Caicos, protecting the beaches from ocean surges and keeping the coastal blue calm and clear.
