Have you ever been on a Grand Turk night dive?

We don’t mean diving into the cold, dark depths with a flashlight – we mean diving into a sea of bioluminescence, the surrounding kaleidoscope of sea life lighting the night with phosphorescent illumination.

There’s nothing like it. And if you’ve never been (or are only now just finding out), we have to say: this is one life experience that needs to be on every bucket list, especially if you’re a diver!

Our instructors can take you on one of these magical journeys through a Caribbean Sea of stars. Sometimes you need a guide to take you through this unique space, like on The Wall, a drop off from a depth of 25 feet to 7000 feet in a heartbeat, just a stone’s throw away from Pillory Beach.

It’s one thing to experience Grand Turk by day; it’s quite another to experience it by night. We can’t recommend it enough.

Grand Turk Travel Keeps Getting Better https://www.bohioresort.com/grand-turk-travel-keeps-getting-better/ https://www.bohioresort.com/grand-turk-travel-keeps-getting-better/#respond Fri, 10 Mar 2017 19:32:51 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=2197

Read More]]> The skies above Grand Turk are spectacular, but these days we use them for more than just beautiful views – they are also the best way to get to and from the Turks and Caicos Islands.

We have WestJet offering direct flights from Toronto to Provo (Providenciales) and even better regional connectivity between islands than we’ve ever had before. If you’re Canadian and wishing it was easier to escape to Grand Turk for the ultimate dive vacation, your wish has been granted!

Wake up to the sound of snow falling, enjoy some Tim Hortons on the way to the Pearson International. A quick flight to Provo and a short hop to Grand Turk later and you’re sipping ice cold drinks on Pillory Beach at the best bar in TCI: the Ike and Donkey Beach Bar.

Of course, it’s not just Canadians who get direct flights to Provo. American Airlines, Delta, United, British Airways, and many more – the choice is yours!

Grand Turk In Autumn https://www.bohioresort.com/grand-turk-in-autumn/ https://www.bohioresort.com/grand-turk-in-autumn/#respond Fri, 22 Apr 2016 18:01:06 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=1834

Timing is everything when it comes to having the vacation you’ve always dreamed of – and the timing couldn’t be better to visit Grand Turk than in early autumn.

As our summer ends and the fall season begins, we have this perfect traveler’s sweet spot: the temperature drops from the mid-high 80s that we see in August to the comfortable low 80s we see the rest of the year, and at the same time, many of the travelers hoping to escape their respective winters have yet to arrive.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to ‘fall’ in love with Grand Turk; and the best time to enjoy the Best of Bohio with family or friends, learning to dive in small groups, intimate dining, and lounging on the pristine sands of Pillory Beach.

Treat the family to a Fall Vacation they won’t soon forget!

Grand Turk Kayaking https://www.bohioresort.com/grand-turk-kayaking/ https://www.bohioresort.com/grand-turk-kayaking/#respond Fri, 12 Feb 2016 15:07:23 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=1745

One of the best ways to explore off Pillory Beach and around Grand Turk is by kayak, and luckily for you, Bohio has complimentary kayaks and lifejackets on-site for you to use on your visit.

Grand Turk isn’t a large island by any means, but there are a number of notable locations within easy-to-more-ambitious kayaking distances around the island. If you’re up for a few miles of kayaking, you can head up around the north end of Grand Turk and down into North Creek, right in the heart of the island. It’s about 2 miles (3.5km) north to the mouth of North Creek, and then you can kayak another couple miles inland. It’s beautiful.

Of course, maybe a shorter trip is more your speed, in which case a short journey south down by the Grand Turk Museum is more your speed – only about one mile (2.2km) for the round trip.

Whatever your preference, all you have to do is walk down to the beach and your chariot awaits!

Igloo Island? https://www.bohioresort.com/igloo-island/ https://www.bohioresort.com/igloo-island/#respond Sat, 19 Dec 2015 18:09:57 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=1617

Read More]]> The Turks and Caicos is the last place on earth where one would expect to find an igloo – but the flag of this tropical island actually had an igloo on it for quite some time…

In 1870, a flag maker in England mistook a pile of salt for an igloo, so he added in a door. That igloo appeared on the Turks and Caicos Islands flag for the next hundred years.

That’s just one bit of the rich, diverse cultural history to be found here! While you’re down here at Bohio for your winter holiday getaway, we encourage you to set out and explore this amazing history for yourself.

Our residents are descended from a wide array of peoples, and an incredible, storied history has developed before and since Bermudan adventurers started to make extensive use of the natural salt here in the 1660s- an industry that lasted for almost 300 years. Today’s Turks Island people are their descendants.

The Turks and Caicos National Museum has so much history to offer, and while you’re here we invite you to visit it and find out even more about what makes “TCI” such a remarkable and interesting corner of the world.

For more information, please visit: tcmuseum.org

Careful of the Reef! https://www.bohioresort.com/careful-of-the-reef/ https://www.bohioresort.com/careful-of-the-reef/#respond Sat, 28 Mar 2015 09:54:59 +0000 https://www.bohioresort.com/?p=1216

Read More]]> At over 150 years old, the lighthouse on Grand Turk has been helping ships steer clear of the delicate, but deadly, reef. The structure is located on Lighthouse Road on the coast of Grand Turk. It is situated on a small limestone hill overlooking the shallow reef that extends from the northern end of the island.

The building overlooks North Creek which is said to closely resemble the description that Christopher Columbus gave for the first island he stumbled upon in the search of the New World in 1492. Donkey trails lead from the lighthouse to the beach beneath the bluff as they have since the lighthouse was first built.

Mangrove trees on the coast nearby help prevent erosion by retaining the sand. It’s a constant reminder of the history of this idyllic island, how wrecks were prevented, and how the reef was preserved.

Come and see it all for yourself!
