Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos

Grand Turk, the capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, is a small island bursting with turn-of-the-century Caribbean charm, retaining the look and feel of the Caribbean 40 years ago. Grand Turk was founded by Bermudan salt rakers some three centuries ago and its Bermudan-British-colonial architecture surrounded by colorful local dwellings make the island a treasure to visit. It is recognized as being one of the first places in the New World where Christopher Columbus landed and also gained worldwide attention when John Glenn splashed down near Grand Turk on his historic first mission to space. Grand Turk is six miles long and just over a mile wide with a population of only 6,000. It is blessed with miles of uncrowded, beautiful beaches and is close to several uninhabited cays such as Gibb's Cay, home of the stingray encounter. While there are many landside attractions to explore such as the Old Prison, Lighthouse Park, and the re-created salt salina, the real beauty of the island lies underwater. Grand Turk is world-famous for its healthy and beautiful coral reefs that surround the island, stretching almost from the coastline to the 7,000-foot vertical wall just offshore.

Dune Buggy Island Adventure Tour

2 hours | Grand Turk | GDT-525
  • Cockburn Town
  • Grand Turk Lighthouse
  • Outdoor Adventure

For the adventurous at heart, get behind the wheel of a sand dune buggy and explore the island. You'll head off caravan style, following your guide's buggy down the narrow marl tracks that skirt the beach around the island. Take a trek to the bluff, where you can capture the beautiful view of Gibbs Cay and the other Turks Islands that are visible in the Atlantic Ocean. You'll drive by a replica of the space capsule in which John Glenn splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean. You'll continue to the capital of Cockburn Town and travel off the beaten path to North Wells. Here, you might catch a glimpse of pink flamingos foraging in the salina ponds. Departing North Wells, you'll pass North Creek before driving to the northern tip of the island, where you'll stop to capture stunning views from the cliffs high above the Atlantic Ocean before returning back to port.
