Turks & Caicos Islands
Grand Turk Island is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos archipelago, in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s dotted with the remains of salt ponds and windmills from the island’s sea salt industry, prevalent from the 17th to 20th century.
The 19th-century Grand Turk Lighthouse is perched on a rocky bluff in the north. Beaches with clear water ring the island, which is home to wild horses and donkeys.
The island is called GRAND TURK. It’s singular, there is no “S” in Grand Turk, and Grand Turk is a proper noun. Not Grand Turks, grand Turk. It’s Grand Turk. Just like New York City. You don’t go to New York Cities or new York. (grammar Nazi kicking in here)

Grand Turk doesn’t have a ton to offer the cruise passengers in terms of restaurants, as there isn’t much on the island. There are a few options you have for food while you’re visiting.
