Filled with the charm that only a centuries-old Caribbean town can claim, Duke Street in the heart of historic Cockburn Town, Grand Turk is an attraction all by itself. Duke and Front Streets comprise the main thoroughfares of this ancient colonial landscape, and it’s also here where most things in Cockburn Town are happening. Filled with boutique hotels, and ancient colonial buildings – this tree-lined street is a step into history as well as being the main commercial center of Cockburn Town.
Explore the streets, and slip back into the slow ways of island living. Spend more than a day or two here, and you’ll likely find everyone’s face familiar – such is the draw of this small island chain. While on Duke Street, walk the avenue and see the various ancient picket fences overgrown with grass and bougainvillea, discover what relentless time and weather have done to these once great, ancient buildings made with limestone and wood, and explore beachfront bars and boutique bungalow shops.
This is what Caribbean vacation is all about, and if you’ve come to the Turks and Caicos to find it – you’ll find it all on Duke Street.
