Turks and Caicos

As a British overseas territory, Turks and Caicos have an interesting political structure. The British were the first to colonize the island in the 16th century, and they have remained British possessions ever since. However, the islands’ closeness to North America makes them a popular vacation destination for Americans and Canadians, who help to keep the economy afloat. The island of Providenciales, which attracts at least 500,000 visitors each year, is home to about half of the population of around 45,000 people. We cannot claim traditional island culture to be extinct since the question is whether it ever existed in the first place.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a tiny but beautiful set of islands that vigorously cherish their traditions. The Big South Regatta, a historic boat race across the islands, is one of the many water-based celebrations and events in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Valentine’s Day Cup also pits miniature boats against their life-size equivalents in a race. Check out the Salt Cay Day or the long-running kite flying competition conducted across the islands for traditional island celebrations on dry land.
