Grand Turk Highlights
The historical heart of this famous cluster of islands, Grand Turk might just surprise you. Modern and yet distinctly Caribbean, Grand Turk is where Columbus first set foot on his 1492 New World exploration, and here you too can make some Caribbean discoveries.
Take Cockburn Town, the little historic center of Grand Turk that proudly boasts a wonderful selection of historic buildings with rustic, beach bungalow charm. Tour the sites to see how the locals have lived for hundreds of years, do some shopping, and grab some conch fritters before exploring the rest of Grand Turk which consists of many wonderful outdoor activities. Diving is an ever-popular pastime with many great dive sites, ship wrecks, and snorkel spots. Others head to Gibbs Cay to hold the smooth sea rays that populate the underwater area.
