Grand Turk is consistently ranked among the top diving destinations in the world, notably for its spectacular wall diving. Grand Turk is surrounded by marine reserves, historical wrecks and fascinating wildlife, including rare black coral, giant manta rays, turtles, sharks, dolphins and humpback whales. The resort also runs boat trips to other islands, whale-watching excursions (January – April) and day trips to encounter tame stingrays. The resort also offers fishing trips, with the chance to prepare your own catch under their chef’s expert guidance.
The Guanahani restaurant at Bohio resort is open daily to resort residents and non-residents alike, offering an imaginative fusion of wonderful fresh-caught local specialties and international flavors, complemented by an extensive wine list, fine Cuban cigars and Italian coffees and popular house specialty cocktails. Their popular Caribbean nights and weekly beach BBQs offer lobster in season and freshly caught fish, as well as the chance to spot our dive masters singing or playing in one of the local Grand Turk bands.
There’s plenty to explore outside the resort too, with charming Cockburn town just a walk along the shore. The region has a long history of colonial power struggles, pirates and slave ships, and was important for its cotton and salt trade. Some believe that Grand Turk was the site of Christopher Columbus’ first landfall in 1492. A national park on the island celebrates this claim. Now Grand Turk is the very essence of the dream Caribbean holiday, offering a relaxed and laid-back destination. It’s a peaceful haven for wildlife and water lovers, retaining all the sleepy charm of its colonial past, but coming alive at night, with its colorful beach bars and musical inhabitants.
