NORTH AND MIDDLE CAICOS
These largely uninhabited Caribbean islands present an all-too-rare opportunity to discover their treasures by vehicle. The back roads are safe and easy to navigate, leading to countless beaches, coasts, and wetland sights. As the largest islands of the group, there are plenty of adventures to be had. A hired jeep will take you through the beautiful unpaved wilderness from the remote beach of Cedar Point to the village of Lorimers on Middle Caicos.
TURKS HEAD BREWERY
Based in central Providenciales and beginning operations in 2001 as TCI’s first and only brewery, Turks Head Brewery currently produces four varieties of beer and lager: Turk’s Head Lager, Turk’s Head Amber, Island Hopping Ale, and Turk’s Head Lite. The brewery occasionally produces a seasonal selection, including a St. Patrick’s Day stout. Even though it has recently expanded, it is still small yet interesting, with an on-site shop and taproom.
TURKS AND CAICOS NATIONAL MUSEUM
The country’s only museum resides in Cockburn Town on the historic Front Street, and as the only place to find artefacts and learn about the islands’ past and cultural heritage, it is well worth a visit. The primary exhibit is centred on the oldest European shipwreck excavated in the Western Hemisphere – the Molasses Reef Wreck. It also houses important physical evidence of Indigenous people, such as a canoe paddle, pottery, and bone tools.
