The active and pretty beaches on Grand Turk are boasted as some of the most relaxing (or active!) spots that the islands have to offer.
Many guests are excited to learn that this property is right on the water and sand, so you won't need to go very far to experience first hand what makes the area such a popular vacation destination.

Obviously, since Salt Raker Inn is located directly on Osprey Beach, relaxing on the sand is a popular pastime at this property. Right in front of Osprey Beach Hotel is the beautiful Osprey Beach.
