The accommodations offered on Grand Turk are generally confined to small hotels and vacation rental villas. Many of the hotels and villas offer additional amenities, such as breakfast or the complimentary use of bicycles, snorkel gear and water sports equipment.

Accommodation Locations

Grand Turk is a relatively small island, and many accommodations are situated on or near one of the island's beaches.

The majority of lodgings are found on the central west coast, often quite close to either English Point Beach, Cockburn Town Beach, or Pillory Beach.

Several vacation rental villas and guest houses are found the bluffs off of Light House Road. This area is located on the northeast side of the island, and offers a bit more seclusion.

If your chosen place to stay is located in or quite near to Cockburn Town, you’ll likely be able to do without a rental vehicle or taxi for at least most of your stay. However, most of the other regions on Grand Turk are a bit too far of a walk from the restaurants and supermarkets to be pleasant, so a rental car is typically necessary.

How to Get the Best Rates

You'll likely get the best rate if you directly contact the accommodation via email or telephone. Before doing so, it however definitely makes sense to do a bit of online research on the prices so as to have a bargaining point.

Deposits will usually be required upon booking (up to 25%) and the balance on arrival. Daily rates range from about $90 a night for a simple villa up to $300 for a full service hotel room.

Keep in mind that some vacation rentals may simply be a single room or suite, whereas others are a full-fledged and stand-alone villa on the beach.

Rental car rates are comparatively high on Grand Turk. Some vacation rentals include the usage of a vehicle, which can potentially save about $80 per day in rental car fees.

What’s the Best Time of Year to Stay on Grand Turk?

The answer depends on how you’d like to spend your vacation. Due to the freezing weather to the north, the Turks and Caicos is the busiest during the winter months. Room and activities rates are lowest in early and late summer.

For divers, the winter months tend to have better sightings of the larger sea creatures such as manta rays, leatherback turtles, whales and sharks. However, the summer months experience calmer weather (at least when a tropical depression isn’t near!), which is definitely optimal for snorkelling and diving.

For some outdoor activities, the temperature during the peak summer months of July, August and September can be oppressive.

Unlike some of the other islands in the Turks and Caicos, mosquitoes are rarely an issues on Grand Turk do to the island’s small size and the lack of sheltering heavy vegetation.
