Map of Grand Turk
Grand Turk makes up in stature what it lacks in size. At barely seven square miles, (6.5 long and 1.5 wide), it is the capital island of the Turks & Caicos. The only settlement, Cockburn Town, is home to several excellent examples of Bermudan architecture, the Turks & Caicos National Museum and the Grand Turk Cruise Center.

Map of Salt Cay
As small as it is, Salt Cay IS the second largest of the Turks Islands. Triangular in shape, each coastline is barely two miles long and there are fewer than 100 full-time residents. In the 1700s, it boasted a thriving salt industry. The demise of that economy, in about 1930, saw the island’s population decline steadily. Today, Salt Cay is renowned for fabulous whale watching encounters, both in and out of the water, miles of pristine, deserted white sand beaches, small town friendliness, and very fresh local seafood in the three restaurants. This is the perfect island for nature buffs, bikers, snorkellers and SCUBA divers, and for those who just wish to relax and unwind.

Map of South Caicos
South Caicos, despite its relatively unknown status in the current tourism hierarchy, is an eden for eco-tourists, fishing and water sports adherents. The landscape and waterscapes of this 8.5 square mile island are sweeping, and the beaches untouched. Several luxury, yet ecologically friendly homes have been built and more are planned. A new resort will open in early 2015. There are approximately 1,100 residents on South. Visit the Big South via TCI Ferry service or InterCaribbean flights from Providenciales.
