Arrange for a car rental in Turks and Caicos so you can really explore Grand Turk Island. The Grand Turk Lighthouse was built in the 1850s to warn mariners of the shallow reef at the northern end of the island. The 60-foot cast iron structure was first electrified in 1972. Those with Turks and Caicos vacation packages often include snorkeling or scuba diving on their itineraries, and one of the best spots for snorkeling is at Library Reef on Grand Turk. In addition to all the colorful fish, there is a spectacular transition where the water drops from 30 feet to 7,000 feet at the edge of the reef.
In the late summer, the Turks and Caicos Music and Cultural Festival features local talent playing ripsaw music, as well as visiting musical artists from across the Caribbean and the United States. In the past, notable performers have included John Legend, Alicia Keys, Michael Bolton, and Lionel Richie.
In late May, the South Caicos Regatta features boat races, a parade, and unique maypole dances. Every February, the Valentine's Day Cup is a model sailboat race at Barnberra Beach. All entries must be crafted from branches of the gum-elemi tree. Right after Easter, the skies over Providenciales are filled with colorful and uniquely crafted entries in the Turks and Caicos Kite Flying Competition.
