Historically, the Turks and Caicos have followed Eastern Standard Time (EST), observing daylight savings time. The Government decided, due to the early sunsets during the busy tourist season, to change to Atlantic Standard Time (no daylight savings), which is also followed by several other Caribbean countries.
On March 8, 2015, clocks were moved forward one hour for the switch to AST. The Turks and Caicos Islands is a rather small archipelago, and all islands and settlements are in the same time zone (EST).
The Turks and Caicos Islands feature crystal clear turquoise seas, white sand beaches, and unspoiled Caribbean tranquility. The islands are relatively flat and consist of 193 square miles. On the north side, facing the Atlantic Ocean, a long barrier reef protects the islands while providing superlative scuba diving opportunities.
