Top 3 Sites in the Turks and Caicos

  • HUMPBACK WHALES   Grand Turk

The entire population of North American Humpback Whales travel along the shores of the Turks and Caicos on their way to mate and calve a few miles south in the Silver Banks.

Whaling was outlawed in 1966 and today the Humpback Whale is still an endangered species, on its way back from the brink of extinction. The Humpback’s song is long and complex, and they are known for their frequent display of aerial acrobatics, making them ideal subjects for whale watching.

These annual visitors are very sensitive to outside pressure, and with the increasing tourism industry, personified on Grand Turk by an expanding cruise ship business, there’s no telling how these ancient mariners will respond. Balancing industry and nature is the challenge of any nation on the economic rise.


  • The CROSSING PLACE TRAIL, Middle Caicos 

This is an historical field road that was used by the people of Middle Caicos to travel across their island to Crossing Place, where, when the tides were low, people could walk to neighbouring North Caicos for trade, school, or love.

It’s a three hour hike along the most beautiful coastline in the country.  The coral reef that rings the north shore of the Caicos Islands sweeps close in to shore on Middle Caicos, resulting in a coastline made up of sweeping cliffs and white sand.  We see cranes and flamingos in pools along the way.


  • Wade’s Green Plantation. North Caicos: 

After the American War of Independence many British loyalists re located to the Bahamas  which included the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Some planters established slave plantations here and Wades Green is an evocative and eerie reminder of this dark.period of history, with many buildings remaining partially ruined .

Nearby  Kew was settled by the slaves of Wade’s Green, who were emancipated in 1850.
