Grand Turk Lighthouse

Protected by the National Trust, this structure on the island’s northern side was actually imported. In 1852, pieces of the 18-meter-tall (60-foot-tall) lighthouse were shipped from the United Kingdom, where they were assembled on its current site. Until its electrification in 1972, the light was powered by kerosene; its storage house is adjacent to the tower, as is the keeper’s home. The entirety of the site is a pretty perch from which to gaze upon the ocean and, in season, spot whales.
