Grand Turk

Introduction

Reaching Grand Turk is not that east. From Miami, an American Air Lines brings visitors to Providenciales. From there, a smaller plane fly to Grand Turk island is less than half an hour. For those who do not like crowded places and noise, this is the paradise. All four hotels have perhaps a maximum of 50 beds! It is really like going back into the past. Indeed, divers will enjoy plenty of free time, since even after three dives a day, they still will have the opportunity to visit the island by bicycle, for example - a cheap way to enjoy Grand Turk, only 5 US$ per day. Going around the island should take about half a day. And should someone be tired after such ride, the calm on the island should allow for a prompt recovery. Grand Turk is not a place for night life, as there are only two small restaurants outside the resorts. No night club, not even a bar. But Providenciales is only a short trip away, and there you will probably feel that you are back in Miami!

All diving takes place on the east side of the island. It is a protected area, the Columbus Landfall National Park. Unlike what you can read in some advertisements, there is no shore dive, but rather some beach dives. The wall is located about 300 meters from the beach, and can be reached by boat in five minutes. It is also possible to dive on the west coast, but the diving sites are less interesting.
