Grand Turk Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Grand Turk Vacation Rentals

Grand Turk is the political capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, located in the Caribbean. Because of its tropical climate, it is a year-round vacation destination. If you have special interests, there are certain times of year that you’d most like to visit. In the summertime, there are several festivals that attract many party enthusiasts. The annual game fishing competition is one such event where the days are spent out on the water trying to catch the elusive big one and the nights are a grand celebration. Those keen on whale watching will want to visit Grand Turk between February and April. It’s during this time that the humpback whales migrate from Salt Cay to the Silver Banks in the Dominican Republic.

Grand Turk Travel Attractions

Like many of the islands that make up the Turks and Caicos Islands, Grand Turk has beautiful powdery white beaches. As a tropical paradise, it doesn’t get much better than this. While the island is developed, there is still a strong emphasis on nature and most recreation activities are enjoyed with a high level of environmental awareness.

Grand Turk is consistently rated as one of the world’s top dive sites. The magnificent walls, colorful corals and rich diversity of marine life offer diving at its best. Access to these phenomenal dive sites is just a short seven-minute boat ride from the shore. Most people enjoy two tank dives returning to shore for a short rest break in between. For those that enjoy staying above the water, the snorkeling is equally rewarding. Charters operate regularly throughout the year, allowing visitors to experience this wonderful underwater world for themselves.

In season, you can watch the migratory whales breach and play in the surf. Whale watching excursions are very popular and it’s advisable to book your space well in advance. Nature trails and bird watching are other popular pastimes on Grand Turk. Sea birds of all kinds can be found along the shores. Guided ecological tours will give you unique insight into their habits.

If you have an interest in history and culture then stop in and visit the National Museum on Grand Turk. Here, you can see relics and artifacts dating back to the earliest known inhabitants on the island. The museum takes a walk through history right up to modern times. There is a particularly fascinating stamp collection among other attractions.

For a relaxed outing, you can join a cruise charter or horseback riding excursion around the island. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views as your chosen mode of transport takes you sightseeing. For something a little faster, you can hire jet skis or go on a speed boat excursion.

Grand Turk is a popular port of call for international cruise liners because of its state-of-the-art luxury cruise ship center. The center consists of a 3,000-foot pier with a welcoming deck and recreation area and can accommodate two Panamex class vessels simultaneously. Many visitors come ashore to shop for souvenirs in Cockburn Town and see the beautiful old historical buildings.

Who Will Enjoy a Stay at Grand Turk Villas

Grand Turk caters to a wide range of interests. Scuba divers and fishermen make up a large portion of visitors that return each year. It’s a place where there is loads to see and do, yet you can just as easily spend the days relaxing at your villa and simply enjoying the island views.

Getting to Grand Turk

The JAGS McCartney International Airport receives scheduled and charter flights from a wide variety of North American and Caribbean airlines. You can also look into flights that route via Provinciales International Airport on Caicos if you can’t find flights from your region directly in to Grand Turk. There is a reliable taxi service which makes getting around on the island relatively easy.
