THINGS TO DO ON THE ISLAND OF GRAND TURK:
Without a doubt the major attraction to Grand Turk is the spectacular diving and snorkeling but there are thing to do for the non-divers as well such as; bird watching, boating to uninhabited cays and feeding the Sting Rays, fishing, visiting the Turks and Caicos National Museum or the 150 year old cast iron light house or simply strolling the quaint streets admiring the colonial Bermudian architecture. But for some just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Caribbean Sea and nearly deserted beaches is enough.
