The Charm of Turks & The Bohio Resort

Bohio is a Turks and Caicos Resort that promises a hassle-free vacation with a personal service and warm welcome – all in one idyllic spot.
Grand Turk is a safe island to wander around, just look out for the local donkeys, cows and horses that roam the island as well Bohio Resort provides bicycles for guests to use. The people of Grand Turk are friendly and welcoming and after a week here you’ll feel like part of the community.
As well as the activities mentioned above, be sure to check out the Lighthouse at the northern point of the island which offers spectacular views along the length of Grand Turk and the famous reef, which was the cause of many shipwrecks in olden days. A Grand Turk vacation is not complete without a visit to The Turks & Caicos National Museum. It is packed with lots of story boards, artifacts and historical background on these fascinating colonial islands.
Cruise ships visit Grand Turk approximately three days each week, and when there is a ship in port it’s fun to browse the local art and craft stalls which open on Front Street. You can visit the Grand Turk Cruise Centre which has lots of high-end shops, and even Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville where you can people-watch and enjoy a delicious cocktail. It’s the Caribbean version of a French cafe!

What you can expect diving TCI
The Turks and Caicos have kept tourism high end and low rise, and divers love to come to these islands to see what untouched natural beauty looks like. Conditions are ideal for any experience level, with mild sea conditions and a huge variety of conditions, from safe sandy shallows to dramatic drop-offs. And with a dramatic wall, plunging into a deep ocean trench between the two groups of islands, those of different abilities can share the same dive site and yet experience things on a completely different level.
As far as sea life, you’ll never be bored. With colourful coral and shallow reef life in such close proximity to pelagic visitors and migrants you can see something new every day.
- Soft and hard corals in hundreds of hues, brain corals, anemones, and sponges
- Angelfish, groupers, snappers, barracuda, jacks, parrotfish and so many more
- Lobsters, crabs, turtles, seahorses
- Eagle rays, stingrays, nurse sharks and manta rays
The Turks and Caicos are made up of 40 individual islands and cays, each hosting unparalleled beaches and translucent, turquoise waters teaming with diverse wildlife. Surrounded by one of the most extensive coral reef systems worldwide (65 miles across and 200 miles long), the islands are truly spectacular. Grand Turk is surrounded by walls covered in sponges and corals starting at 25 feet (7 meters) before plunging 7000 feet (1230 meters) straight down, it is guaranteed to take your breath away.
As a result, Grand Turk’s scuba diving opportunities are some of the best in the Caribbean. Our boats are ready and waiting for you only 1000 feet (300 meters) from the resort, primed to transport you to the spectacular reef that hugs the west coast of the island.
