24 Hours in Turks & Caicos

The Turks and Caicos Islands are divided into two groups: the Turks, which lie to the East of the Columbus Passage, and the Caicos, which are situated to the West.

The 7.5-square-mile capital, Grand Turk, and her 2.5-square-mile little sister, Salt Cay, are the only inhabited islands in the Turks group. The rustic charm of the isles, warm and friendly nature of the people, historic sites and spectacular array of natural beauty will keep you returning time and again.

Hidden Treasure

Comfortable and romantic, Pirates Hideaway Guest House By the Sea is located on Salt Cay, a short six minute flight from Grand Turk. This boutique resort offers peaceful privacy with spacious rooms, fully equipped with life’s comforts.

Turks & Caicos National Museum

The Turks and Caicos National Museum is housed in the Guinep House, Grand Turk, aptly named for the large Guinep trees that stand tall in front of the property. Inside, museum visitors will learn about the Molasses Reef Wreck – the oldest shipwreck ever found in the Western Hemisphere, the salt industry, the race to space, and the early inhabitants of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
