Grand Turk Shopping

Turks and Caicos souvenir mugs
Souvenir mugs from Grand Turk.

Grand Turk's shopping is largely limited to tourist-oriented souvenirs and trinkets. Although there are a few stores that sell locally produced wares, the majority of stuff for sale is imported souvenirs that are common across Caribbean tourist destinations, with the main difference being the 'Grand Turk' stamp instead of 'Jamaica' or 'Bahamas'.

The small gift shops and art galleries found in the old part of Cockburn Town tend to have more local and handmade souvenirs, although there are many newer stands selling mass-produced trinkets.

Shopping Areas

Grand Turk Cruise Center

The Grand Turk Cruise Center is the center of attention for tourist shopping on the island. This complex was opened in 2006 and along with several bars and restaurants, has about 15 chain retail and duty-free outlets on site. The vast majority of the goods sold at the cruise center are the common imported items found at most tourist destinations, and include items such as jewelry, alcohol, t-shirts and mass-produced trinkets. For Starbucks fans looking for a souvenir coffee mug, it's also the site of the only Starbucks store in the Turks and Caicos.

If you buy shells, see Buying, Collecting, and Exporting Conchs, Shells and Corals.

Front Street, Cockburn Town

On days when a cruise ship is in you'll find a wide range of stalls and stands along Front Street. There's a few permanent shops on Front Street, but lots of shops are closed when there isn't a cruise ship in port.

National Museum Gift Shop

The Turks and Caicos National Museum on Front Street has a shop that stocks many authentic gifts and books relating to the islands, along with a great selection of postcards (both vintage reprints and modern ones). This is also the Grand Turk retail outlet for the Middle Caicos Co-op.

The Middle Caicos Co-op is an organization that represents more than sixty local artisans that produce baskets, hats, model sailboats and other souvenirs, so you'll likely to find something actually made in the islands.
