Situated in the serene tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea, Grand Turk, the capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, is a real paradise destination. Just eight of the forty islands in the chain are inhabited and the port itself welcomes only smaller lines, perfect for those seeking luxury cruises with Hapag Lloyd, Silversea or Regent Seven Seas.
If you’re looking to learn about the history of these fascinating islands, a trip to the Turks & Caicos National Museum is a must. Explore the maritime history, including a unique insight into the oldest found shipwreck in the western hemisphere, dating back to 1513, believed by some to have belonged to Christopher Columbus. The 150 year-old Grand Turk Lighthouse offers breathtaking ocean vistas from a historic landmark.
Alternatively, the Hop on/Hop off Island Bus is a fantastic way of seeing Grand Turk’s highlights, but at a more laid-back pace. For those hoping to relax on Grand Turk, a trip to the recently-built tourism village will provide all the necessary amenities. Visitors can enjoy local restaurants, as well as access to a picturesque stretch of beach.
