This location is basically shut down now so the trip over is not worth it. Although the sign pole with the location directions and mile markings makes and awesome family picture. The old boat is also a good photo op as well but outside of that don't bother.

It sadly closed about 2-3 years ago and is slowly rotting away....sad because it has some of the most spectacular views of the ocean and surrounding Cay's islands...exspect a bumbpy ride as it is all rocky road but worth the view

So well done! The presentation was first class and the people very friendly and helpful. To bad Carnival Cruise lines did not support this local undertaking and it's work!

Conch World was set up to support and preserve the conch population around Grand Turk. it is surprisingly interesting. as conch is about the only cash crop here, it is also extremely important. Well worth a couple of hours, and with great views of the eastern reefs.

My family and i were looking to see more of the Island, we had read the reviews and figured we would check it out for ourselves. Don't Bother! We arrived and met "Denver" our "tour guide". Once our twelve bucks (cash only) per adult was secure in his cash register and after a brief explanation of the farming process, Denver... More

If there was a tour, it was all closed off by the time we got there. We sat down at the Naked Conch as we were pretty hungry, and waited a while and then ordered. Nothing available - no fish! - except for conch fritters and salad and cheeseburgers, so we ordered those. There were maybe 10 other people there.... More

Got to Conch World and waited about an hour between 8:45am and 9:30am and no one showed up to give us a tour. We left and went down to the Light House where I talked to a taxi cab driver. He stated that the generators were broke there and they have been closed for about 2 weeks waiting for repair... More

Conch World was one of the highlights to our trip to Grand Turk. We rented a moped just outside of the cruise center, and toured the island on our own. I had read about Conch World, but didn't want to spend the $60 for the tour offered by our cruiseline...so we found the place on our own! Turns out, it's... More
