The Turks & Caicos Islands in the Caribbean are famous for their beautiful unspoiled beaches, coral reefs and coral walls that plunge down from turquoise shallows to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean 7,000 feet below. In previous centuries the Turks & Caicos Islands have been havens for famous pirates and traps for treasure-laden ships. They were exporters of salt (the white gold), conches and lobsters. Now a stable British Overseas Territory, the high-lights are tourism and off-shore finance. Scuba divers and wildlife enthusiasts can see manta rays, iguanas, great whales and Jojo the dolphin, a wild Atlantic bottle-nose dolphin who has adopted Turks & Caicos!
