A historic landmark protected by the National Trust, the Grand Turk Lighthouse sits on the northern tip of the island and at one time served to protect ships that traveled at night from wrecking on the off-shore reefs.

What to Expect

The lighthouse is a popular stop along hiking trails and donkey tours, where there is plenty of shade and a few picnic benches for those who have brought a lunch. This destination is also great for whale watching in February and March.

The historical significance of the lighthouse is that it was brought to the island in pieces from the United Kingdom where it had been built in 1852.
