Turks and Caicos
Turks and Caicos are a group of coral islands that are a British Overseas Territories area in the Atlantic Ocean. They are famous for their sandy white beaches, coral reef and turquoise blue waters which makes them a popular tourist destination. They are great diving and snorkelling spots, with thousands of aficionados visiting to take part in these sports every year. Whether you want to take part in water sports or visit a few exotic places on the island, the following are the best spots to make the best of your holiday:
- GRACE BAY
Grace Bay in Provo is easily the most popular vacation spot in the group of islands. It has a great beach and is close to recreational facilities such as a golf course, restaurants and shopping facilities. All these are within walking distance so tourists can fit in a day of fun in the water and finish up with shopping and dining out in the evening.
- BRIGHT REEF
Bright Reef which is also known as Coral Gardens is the most popular snorkelling reef in the Turks and Caicos Islands. It is popular for its wide variety of brightly coloured fish and other marine life. The creatures in this reef are used to snorkelers and are thus less likely to attack. Popular marine life that you can view on this reef include: green turtles, Nassau groupers, nurse sharks, spotted eagle rays and many others.
- TURKS AND CAICOS NATIONAL MUSEUM
- If you are looking for a quieter excursion away from the liveliness of the beach, then a trip to the Turks and Caicos National Museum should be just the thing. Located on Front Street in Grand Turk, the museum showcases the natural history of the islands in addition to chronicling the lives of the slaves who first lived on the island. There is a museum shop and island as well as several exhibits of vessels that have been shipwrecked off the island.
- CHESHIRE HALL
- A former cotton plantation, Cheshire Hall is a popular attraction for history buffs. While it now lies mostly in ruins, tourists can still see what life on a plantation may have looked like and view a few native and cotton plants that still grow on the plantation. The plantation’s main house sits on a hill providing panoramic views of the area.
