A Brief History of Turks and Caicos
The history of the Turks and Caicos islands began with the Taino and Lucayan Indians, the original settlers. These settlers were known for seafaring, salt raking, and farming. For almost 700 years, these Indians were the sole residents of these islands. It was not until 1492 that the civilization disappeared. During the next 30 years, the salt-making industry was born, where Bermudians would come to rake the salt and then take it back to Bermuda. In 1874, the islands became the property of the British Crown Colony of Jamaica, until Jamaica won its independence from Britain in 1962, and Turk and Caicos remained a British Crown colony on its own. The islands became a tourism destination with the formation of Club Med Turkoise Resort in the 1980s and it has taken off since.
Grace Bay Beach
Relax in comfort at one of Grace Bay’s 5-star luxury resorts, a vacation villa, or even a budget hotel. Consider a snorkeling tour or choose a parasailing adventure while enjoying the soft white sand and beautiful blue waters. Grace Bay Beach offers it all, whether you are visiting for business or play.
Taylor Bay Beach
Taylor Bay Beach is the perfect vacationing spot if you have small children. This is because there are very low tides due to the shallow waters. This area also hardly sees any crowds because of its remote location, just west of Sapodilla Bay.
Turks and Caicos National Museum
The Turks and Caicos National Museum opened its doors in 1991. This museum highlights the Lucayan Indian culture as well as the history of these islands from the colonial era to the sea slave trade. This is a great place to visit for lovers of history.
