All the achorages are on the north east side of the island. Their is good holding and good protection. Behind West Caicos is a good spot to.

Our to 5 Turks and Caicos Anchorages are:

West Caicos

west caicos turquoise water white sand deserted island

West Caicos is one of my favorite spots in the Caribbean. This island is totally deserted and uninhabited. There are miles of beach on the east side of the island.


If you have wind anything other then east it's a good spot to go. The holding is good and the beach is amazing. If a storm pops up you can always duck around to the west side of the island and grab a mooring ball. I got stuck here during the worst night of my life. The Balls here are solid I promise.


Green Turtle

If you can stomach the entrance into this area then good for you. You must be an experianced navigator and helmsmen to attempt entry into this harbour. You are constantly snaking your way through reefs. Their is only a 30 ft wide opening between two reefs at one point. If you get it wrong your sunk.Their are no spots to bail out and regain you composure. The weather needs to be calm in order to enter.


Grace Bay

This is truly a dream anchorage. Having your boat hanging out just off of the world's best beach is something every boat owner dreams of. You have to be very careful in here. The entrance to the anchorage is difficult. Their is a high and low route. the high route has you dodging shallow water and sand bars. The low route is a narrow passage between two reefs.


In order to anchor here comfortably the wind must be south of east. Anything other then that and you will be exposed. The prevailing north swell is also something to account for since you need to tuck in behind the barrier reef for protection. The whole anchorage is maybe 1000 ft by 1000ft so it's tight.


French Cut

This is a tiny speck of a beach on your way out of Turks and Caicos. Its 16.5 miles bearing 117 degress of the end of West Caicos. If your leaving from Provo this is a great spot to cut some time off your trip to the Dominican Republic. Rest here for the night before making the passage.


Grand Turk

This isn't the best spot on the planet. Their are places i would rather be. It is on the list simply because it is a great place to clear in and out. It is well protected from the easterlies and if your in Provo you can split your Dominican Republic passage into two.


Clearing out of here or into here breaks up the very long voyage to or from the Dominican Republic. It's a bit of a tourist trap. The cruise ships dock up here.
