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.
