Welcome to Turks & Caicos.

Paradise, found. The Turks and Caicos Islands consist of 40 islands and cays, eight of which are inhabited. The islands are located 550 miles southeast of Miami, Florida, just below the Bahamas, in the warmest, bluest enclave of the Atlantic Ocean. Spoiled with warm, calm weather, the Turks & Caicos Islands rarely see rain, and enjoy 350 days of sunshine. Tip of the Tail is located on a peninsula called Turtle Tail, speckled with estate homes and celebrity mansions (including Prince’s palatial estate), and luxurious, private living.

Exploration doesn’t end at Tip of the Tail.

Tip of the Tail was designed to keep her guests entertained, invigorated and rejuvenated. But some of the best exploration is done in our neighbourhood — both on land, and at sea. Charter a yacht to tender you right from our dock, slice through the clear blue water on a thrilling jetski adventure, or have our driver bring you into town for shopping, dining and nightlife like you’ve never experienced before.

Strategically placed and designed, Tip of the Tail allows her visitors to experience the best of the Turks & Caicos islands, using the villa as your base for rest, relaxation and luxury. Explore the various excursions, events and destinations on-island that have made our guests fall in love with the island. 

Explore a majestic oceanscape.

Turks & Caicos is more than just a beach destination in the Caribbean. It’s a living, breathing ecosystem for adventure junkies, thrill seekers, and of course, sun and sand lovers. It’s an explorer’s paradise; in 2004, in the midst of Hurricane Frances, a privately-owned freighter broke loose from its mooring and drifted into the Caribbean Sea.

Today, the La Famille Express rests on a reef just five minutes away from Tip of the Tail, abandoned and desolate. It was built in 1952 by the Russian Navy as a cargo ship, the Fort Shevchenko. It was sold to an islander in the mid-1990s, but not before witnessing the Cuban Missile Crisis first-hand in 1962. Alone on the reef, rusting and decaying since the day it was wrecked, it serves as a visual landmark for boaters and a hidden attraction of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Whether you admire it from sea level or are brave enough to traverse its walls, this shipwreck is rarely visited by tourists despite its crystal blue, shallow surroundings — making it the perfect spot for a unique photo op. Our guests have exclusive access to our neighbouring marina, who can send a certified guide right to our beach to pick you up and explore the wreck.

Venture across Turks & Caicos by land, sea or air.

Looking to rent a car, charter a yacht or experience a seaplane or heli tour of the island? Just ask our VIP Sales Team or on-site Villa Manager to arrange these or any other island excursions for you. From private and party cruises, to snorkel and scuba day trips, to whale watching adventures, Turks & Caicos has something to offer for all. We recommend viewing these excursions on Viator.com.

Vivid, vibrant culture.

The Turks & Caicos is a beautiful, warm and safe island nation steeped in rich history dating back to nearly 700 years before Christopher Columbus first set foot on the island in 1492. The people of Turks & Caicos, called Turks Islanders, are happy, friendly people who are always excited to welcome visitors to their islands. Many North Americans call Turks & Caicos home thanks to its weather, investment climate, safety and proximity to the Untied States and Canada.

Today, Turks & Caicos stands on the threshold of an exciting future boasting the fastest growing economy in the Caribbean coupled with strictly controlled development to protect the islands heritage as a pristine sanctuary for both local residents and tourists to enjoy for the next thousand years.

Community Traditions — Fish Fry Thursdays!

If you’ve ever had a friend or family member who has visited the Turks & Caicos Islands, chances are, you’ve heard of Fish Fry Thursdays. Tourists and locals alike join together in the country’s biggest social tradition — a huge cultural gathering every single Thursday filled with mouthwatering food, Caribbean culture, and a Junkanoo dancing parade. A trip to Turks & Caicos would not be complete without visiting Fish Fry Thursdays!

Tip of the Tail’s breathtaking glass-wall pool is one of the villa’s most beloved features. Make a splash or wade in with the sunset and experience the sensation of being one with the ocean. The pool is equipped with LED lights that can be programmed to your exact favorite hue, or set to be in tune with the villa-wide music system. Pool party, or romantic midnight swim? You set the tone. Looking for the best seat in the house? Our 10-person cabana lounger is just the relaxation spot you’ve been searching for. Each of the four upper bedrooms feature access to seamless indoor/outdoor living on our expansive 2,000 square foot terrace. Perfect for sunbathing, reading a book or enjoying a seafood fare on, Tip of the Tail’s terrace is lined in glass and exudes an atmosphere that marries Miami with the Tropics. Step down the stairs adjacent to the pool into Tip of the Tail’s courtyard where you’ll find our 20-person fire pit enclave designed to ignite the senses in the heat of the night. The fire pit allows you and your party to create your own nightlife in a setting that is both intimate and extravagant, all in the same breath. Welcome to a villa whose backyard begs the question — ‘what kind of beach-goer are you?’. Tip of the Tail features two beach landscapes that join together as one. For the wanderlust traveller who dreams of blue skies, soft sand and blue lagoons, our beautiful white-sand beach is for you. Escape the sun on a lounger beneath our palapas designed to elevate your beach experience like never before. For the children, and children at heart, Tip of the Tail’s second beach landscape is filled with millions of shells – a treasure trove for every young explorer. Regardless of which landscape you choose, wade into the lagoon set amongst the most vivid and lush mangroves in the Caribbean. Warm, blue, clean and safe water awaits you. Next question: what are you searching for in — or on — the water? Tip of the Tail is equipped with kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and water toys to keep you active while on vacation, or to explore the channel that feeds life into the mangroves. Looking for a high-speed thrill? We’re partnered with our neighbouring marina — home to mega yachts and beautiful catamarans — meaning you can have a jetski delivered right to your backyard (or in this case, your lagoon). While the beautiful soft sand of Tip of the Tail’s private lagoon is breathtaking and inviting, some will always prefer the thrill of the open ocean. Tip of the Tail is unique in that it is both lagoon-front, and ocean-front. Step onto the warm wood of your private splash dock atop the villa’s coastal edge and dive into the clearest, warmest water you’ve ever experienced. Snorkel with the abundant marine life or allow us to arrange a tender to a nearby yacht. Our villa is one with the ocean, and we want our guests to be, too. In case you planned on spending any of your vacation inside, we’ve outfitted Tip of the Tail with the most sumptuous, luxurious and tasteful comforts of home. Contemporary in architecture and design, and warmed with hues of the ocean, Tip of the Tail was built by master craftsmen and architects to create seamless indoor/outdoor living. With everything from high-end kitchen appliances, silverware and wine glasses, to laundry facilities, to lockable storage and safes in each room, to a wine & spirits fridge and bar, Tip of the Tail was built for living. Prior to the construction of Tip of The Tail, Providenciales villa rentals consisted of colonial style homes with an emphasis on sleeping instead of experiencing. Tip of The Tail looks to challenge this archetype of Providenciales villas. Encompassed by nature, Tip of The Tail draws influence on lifestyle and architectural queues from destinations such as Miami and Mykonos to promote exploration and seamless indoor/outdoor transitions. With gleaming white walls and colorful outdoor lighting, Tip of The Tail insures that the standard for Turks and Caicos Villas will never be the same again.
