Less than 600 miles from Miami, is a quirky little island called Grand Turk. It is the historical and political capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands but much smaller and more laid-back than our bigger sister island, Providenciales ("Provo").  


Also known as "the Rock", Grand Turk is a quaint, idyllic Caribbean Island.  Here, you will feel completely removed from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  Without a single traffic light, Grand Turk runs at its own pace.  The people are very welcoming and make you feel like you’ve ‘come home’.

 

There are no big shopping centers or clubs in Grand Turk.  With the exception of the Margaritaville at the cruise centre, most businesses are small, family run establishments, like Island House.

 

Grand Turk surrounded by white sand beaches and warm, turquoise waters, which makes us an ideal place for divers and non-divers alike.  Whether you are looking to have an exciting dive vacation or to simply relax, you will find what you’re looking for in Grand Turk.
