Overview Of The Port Of Grand Turk

About Grand Turk
Grand Turk is an island in the Turks and Caicos, in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Turks and Caicos Islands lie southeast of Mayaguana in the Bahamas island chain and north of the island of Hispaniola.

Diving and snorkelling are very popular due to the world's third largest coral reef being here. Columbus Landfall Marine National Park and the Grand Turk Wall, offer great views of coral and marine life.

In Cockburn town, Duke and Front Streets are lined with historic 18th and 19th Century buildings, Turks & Caicos National Museum outlines the history of the islands and has displays highlighting it's maritime history.

There isn't a lot of shopping opportunities here but souvenirs such as handmade items and picture frames made of shells and driftwood make nice gifts.

Gibbs Cay on the Atlantic side of Grand Turk is just a short boat ride away, here you can feed and play with the friendly stingrays which swim right up to the shore.

The Grand Turk Lighthouse is over 150 years old, and stands on the northern tip of the island opposite the cruise terminal. It was built in the United Kingdom and transported here piece by piece.

Governor's, Bluff Point and Pillory are all popular beach choices.

A traditional meal usually consists of grits, made with dried Conch or peas, local vegetables and chicken or fish. Rum is an important drink as well as being a flavouring for cakes and steaks. Fish, seafood dishes and international cuisine all can be found here.
