Grand Turk, Half-Moon Cay, and the Turks and Caicos Islands are just some examples of Eastern Caribbean Islands. They are fantastic vacation spots and offer a lot to all visitors. Grand Turk Island
is host to the Grand Turk Island Cruise Center. What is the Grand Turk Island Cruise Center, you ask? It's a world-class, beachfront cruise facility, nestled among nearly 14 acres of landscaped grounds. The island's position and surrounding geography allow ships to dock safely year-round, making this a great place to stop for all cruiselines. The walk to the cruise center is short and allows guests to embark and disembark with relative ease.
At the cruise center, guests can choose between swimming in sparkling ocean water, or in one of the largest swimming pools in the Caribbean. You can also take a relaxed stroll along the beach, just sit around on the beach, or rent a private poolside cabana.
And if you're looking to just have a good time (who isn't) you can go to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville bar. Half-Moon Cay
- You can visit Half-Moon Cay if you sail with Carnival Cruise Line. Located on 55 acres of the 2,400 acre Little San Salvador Island, Half-Moon Cay has been rated as "Best Private Island" by Porthole Cruise Magazine for the past four years. You'll also find a bird sanctuary (only 2 percent of the island is developed), and other breathtaking scenery.
Among the activities on Half-Moon Cay are horseback riding, stingray adventures, Half Moon Lagoon Aqua Park, hiking nature trails, or doing what you're supposed to do in the Caribbean - relaxing in an air-conditioned private beachfront cabana.Turks and Caicos Islands -
The Turks and Caicos consist of 40 different islands and cays, of which only 8 are inhabited. Each island is as different as the cultures of the people that inhabit them. What's great is that all islands offer year-round great climate, beaches, and underwater activities.
The best way to experience this archipelago is to visit each island and take your time while you're there. If that's not in the cards, you can make a few trips and see a few islands each time. Most islands are about 10 to 25 minutes by air from Provo (Providenciales - the tourist center), and most can be reached by boat as well.
Middle Caicos and North Caicos represent the best of the environment, with lush green woodlands, the biggest cave network in the Caribbean (on Middle Caicos), cottage pond and flamingo pond in North Caicos, as well as a large range of plant and animal life.
South Caicos is the fishing center of the islands. Products that come from South Caicos are fish, lobster, and conch. Parrot Cay and Pine Cay are privately owned islands and are home to the most exclusive resorts: Parrot Cay Resort and Spa and the Meridian Club.
