Visit Turks & Caicos – Transportation
Although Provo (Providenciales) is the most populated island in the Turks and Caicos, it doesn’t have a clearly defined city. It is about 15 miles long (25 km) and narrows at points to 2 miles in width. Provo is the resort center of the Turks and Caicos and the site for the international airport. Visitors love ther beaches, coral reefs and uninhabited islands. Turks and Caicos has become a world class location for hotels, spas and restaurants. Cruise ships stop at the island of Grand Turk instead.
