The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago of the Atlantic Ocean and northern West Indies. The island was unmanned when Juan Ponce de León discovered, but in the subsequent centuries, Bermudian (British) salt collectors settled the Grand Turk Island and British colonization proceeded. The economy of Turks and Caicos is dominated by tourism, offshore finance and fishing.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
