Carnival - Day VI

Grand Turk - The beautiful Island of Grand Turk is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos. Take the time to explore Cockburn town’s wonderful selection of historical buildings including many Bermudian and Colonial style buildings and ruins. That’s just the beginning of all the things to see and do in Grand Turk. And now, as part of a $5 million renovation to the island, the one-of-a-kind Grand Turk Cruise Center features the FlowRider, an artificial wave created for both body boarding and stand-up surfing.

The FlowRider attraction is operated by Grand Turk’s Margaritaville restaurant and bar, and is currently available for all cruise ship calls at Grand Turk, including Carnival Imagination, Carnival Liberty, Carnival Triumph. Come see for yourself. This beautiful island is getting even better every day!

Grand Turk Island is an island in the Turks and Caicos Islands. It is the largest island in the Turks Islands (not the Caicos) with 18 km (6.9 sq mi). It contains the territory's capital, Cockburn Town and the JAGS McCartney International Airport. The island is the administrative, historic, cultural and financial centre of the territory, and has the second largest population of the islands at approximately 3,720 people.

Grand Turk gained international attention in 1962 when John Glenn's Friendship 7 Mercury spacecraft landed in the vicinity of Grand Turk Island off the southeast shoreline. A replica of the Friendship 7 is on display in Grand Turk at the entrance to the Grand Turk Island airport. Source: Wikipedia
