10 Best Outdoor Activities in the Turks and Caicos Islands

You’ll see all kinds of birds throughout the Turks and Caicos. Even the busiest island, Providenciales, is still undeveloped enough that it is a haven for migratory and nesting birds. But for incredible birding opportunities without having to go too far off the beaten path, spend a day or two in Grand Turk. The Salinas (salt flats) there are home to osprey, herons, brown pelicans, and yes, flamingos. You’ll get so close, you won’t even need your binoculars to get a good look. The Turks and Caicos National Museum on Front Street has developed both walking and driving bird tours. They are self-guided, and you can purchase the maps from the museum.
