Grand Turk travel information

A cruise in the Caribbean is everyone’s dream. The services are excellent and you can’t expect anything but top quality accommodation and food. The entertainment possibilities are also among the best.

Whether you are on board of the ship or on land there are plenty of organized activities to suit your taste and make you feel good and fill up your time. If you are an active person and you don’t plan to lie in the sun all day, you are sure to find a diversity of activities from the more relaxing ones like a massage to the more involving ones like swimming. The activities you will find on a cruise are always fun.

The beautiful ambience of the ship is inviting you to spend as much time out of your room as possible and socialize. The fact that you are together with so many people on a ship gives you a sense of belonging and people bond more easily. It is a quite different feeling from that of staying in a hotel.

The destination you choose is up to you and you can choose one or more itineraries as the offer is quite flexible. Of the many ports you can consider Grand Turk Island and Half Moon Cay.

Grand Turk Island

Located 30 miles south of the Bahamas, the island is one of the many islands from the British Crown Colony that numbers 40 islands. It is the most important of the 40 because it is the government seat for the colony. It has 3,700 residents that enjoy some 350 days of sunshine per year and a mild climate that makes it a perfect year round destination. Its fine beaches, snorkel sites, excellent diving opportunities and the crystal clear water make it a popular stop.

You will feel quite at ease here as the main language spoken is English and U.S. dollar is the official currency.

The activities both on water and on land abound. The island is interesting to visit and among the attractions you can see the historic down town area of Cockburn Town that hosts a great variety of historic buildings and other places of historic significance like the Columbus' landing site. Wildlife watching at the natural lagoon is a much appreciated activity. Off land the water based activities abound and there’s plenty of wildlife watching here, too among which we can mention whale watching.

Grand Turk Island is definitely a stop worthwhile.

Another atop along the route in an East Caribbean tour is Half Moon Cay, part of Little Salvador Island. Once a refuge for the pirates, Half Moon Cay is a pretty tropical unspoilt island where you can really feel like you are in paradise, a touristy paradise though that offers its tourists all the necessary facilities for having a great time: private beachside, children's aqua park, plenty of bars, shops, ice cream shop and frozen drink bar, a casual wear shop, a straw market, post office, first aid station and a chapel. They are all within easy, walking distance.

Children will have a great time here as they have definitely been taken into consideration when the playground called "Club HAL, “was built.

Being a significant nesting area for waterfowl, wildlife watching is very good here. Water based activities are numerous: fishing, watercraft adventures, personal watercraft course, swimming attracting all water sports enthusiasts. The place where you can get equipment to rent and information is The Watersports Center near the Welcome Plaza.

You will be able to enjoy all the activities as liners usually stop here for a day.

It is also an attraction for wildlife lovers and for all who would like to see a locals free island.

If you think of having a bite here head towards the Food Pavilion for a lunch in a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. Both islands offer a great variety of activities for all tastes.
