Welcome to Grand Turk
Happily lacking the modern development that has enveloped Provo, Grand Turk is a step back in time. At just 10.5km long, this dot amid the sea is a sparsely populated, brush-covered paradise. Cockburn Town, the main settlement, has narrow streets frequented by wild donkeys and horses. Grand Turk is the port of call for most cruises coming to the Turks and Caicos Islands, thanks to a huge facility at the island's south end. On a busy day, two ships will be in port – off-loading nearly 7000 people.
Beaches rim the land and calm blue water invites you in for a refreshing swim.
