How big is the island of Grand Turk?

Grand Turk is a small island seven miles long and one and a half miles wide.

What makes Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos Islands so special?

There are many benefits that GT has over the main Tourist Island of Providenciales:

  • No high rises and throngs of tourists everywhere, just you and your loved one on the beach.

  • Prices for everything are much more reasonable since it is mainly an island of 4000 locals – no price gouging aimed at the tourists because there aren’t any.

  • The beaches are EMPTY and the whole island is very quiet and laid back.

  • Since there are 4000 permanent residents, there are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and general merchandise stores.

  • Crime is nearly non-existent since there aren’t many tourists to target and because it is such a small island, there isn’t anywhere to hide.

Things that Grand Turk is not:

  • There will be no cabana boy setting up your umbrella on the beach

  • Since you are renting our house, you will be arranging your meals yourself in our kitchen

  • We do not have a pool, however we do use the Cruise Center pool for free

  • There will be no loud music and dance clubs open all hours of the night

Our Beachsidebungalow is all about quiet relaxation off the beaten path where you can live like a local. It’s like you found your own private island!

You will need a Passport, and US citizens can have one expedited in 3 weeks if needed.

Electricity is the same as the United States, the currency is the US dollar, and you should bring a mix of cash and cards.

We have free bikes to use, or you can rent a golf cart for the week for $280. A car would be overkill and a golf cart is much more FUN on an island.

Getting here from the main island is easy, just an extra 20 minute flight on a local airline. ($80 round trip) When you land on Grand Turk we will have our driver waiting on you and he will take you to the house about 4 miles away.

Two of the 5 grocery stores are 100 yards from our house, we walk there everyday.

The nicest restaurant on the island is 300 yards down the beach from our house, walking back home after dinner under the stars sure can “fan the flames”.  6 other great restaurants within walking /biking distance too.

Our island is temperate, ranging from 75 to 90 degrees year round. People come to stay with us year round.

We have 2 internet sources for our WIFI so we are always connected.

Cell phones work fine, get an international travel package.

Each side of our duplex has 2 bedrooms and 2 private baths. Wonderful King beds in the oceanfront masters and twins in the 2nd bedrooms.

Paradise

This house is exactly as advertised; a haven from whatever's going on in your life. If you want to enjoy the luxury of a well-appointed, well-stocked beach house, with a spectacular view to greet you every morning and a perch to look for the green flash every night as the big ball of golden sun dips into the ocean, this is it. I stayed in this house for a month; a month of much needed healing and rest after a long, stressful career, and I can say it did the trick. Biking into town and all over the island, walking a couple blocks down the road to see what the fishermen brought in that night that I could cook up for supper, walking up the beach in the other direction to a lovely resort with a beachside bar and live music on the weekends, and just the sound of the surf right outside, what more could I have asked for? When I needed a teakettle, I made one phone call and it was delivered that afternoon. Drew and his caretaker were enthusiastic about making sure I had everything I needed and all the information I could use to make my trip everything I wanted. The location was perfect for peace and quiet, yet a 10 minute bike ride or 20 minute walk took me to all of the shops, restaurants and dive shops on the island. If this sounds like what you're looking for, look no further!

Get Away From it All

A group of four of us stayed on the larger side from April 5-12. We had a fantastic, relaxing time. The location is perfect for walking to get groceries as well as into town on cruise ship days to check out the vendors and people watch.

We had a great time lounging on the beach, walking, swimming and snorkeling. We even watched humpback whales go by one afternoon! There are a few good restaurants in the area. We ate at the Bohio (BBQ night on Saturdays is very good) and the Osprey (great views!). The bikes are great for exploring the island and we used them to check out the cruise ship terminal and the light house.

This is a very quiet island where the most activity we might see on the beach is a donkey strolling by. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is definitely the place for you!.
