Places to See in the Turks and Caicos



Places to See in the Turks and Caicos

The Turks and Caicos are beautiful to visit with several places to see and enjoy. The best time to come here is in the winter when the weather is warm and pleasant. On the island of Grand Turk, Cockburn Town, the capital, is definitely worth a visit. Home to many colonial buildings and homes, this town offers some wonderful sights. Front Street and Duke Street provide plenty of colonial architecture and historical buildings to enjoy. In town, the National Museum is a great place to visit with an eclectic mix of exhibits and life on the coral reef.

While on Grand Turk, visit the offshore isle of Salt Cay known for its great diving. On this island, cattle and iguanas outnumber the human population with some great offshore dive spots to explore. This cay is also a key nesting site for hawksbill and green turtles.

On the island of Providenciales some sights to see include the ruins of Cheshire Hall, Malcolm Roads, a superb beach and Pigeon Pond, a large salt water lake which attracts migrant birds and waterfowls in the large numbers. The Chalk Sound National Park roughly 3 km from downtown Providenciales is also worth visiting for its tranquil blue waters, which are eerily calm and are of unvarying color.

Nearby there are also several offshore cays to visit as well. The French Cay is a wildlife sanctuary protecting thousands of nesting and migrating birds ranging from frigate birds to ospreys. Little Water Cay is home to over 200 rare and endangered rock iguanas, while Pine Cay offers some great bonefishing to enjoy. A private cay, this island’s more notable residents include Denzel Washington and Bill Cosby. Fort George Cay is known for its good diving and snorkeling, while Dellis Cay is a wonderful place to come shelling.

North Caicos is a great destination for eco-tourists with a number of national parks, two ponds and several gorgeous beaches to enjoy. The entire south shore of North Caicos is a Ramsar Site protecting a series of wetlands that are home to waterfowls, conch and lobster.
