Grand Turk may not be the most lush and upscale place in the Caribbean but what you will find is an "Old World" Caribbean island.  The island is very laid-back, in fact the first day or so you might even find it a little frustrating, service is slow and everywhere you go they don't seem very tuned in to tourists.  But, in less than a day you will discover it really doesn't matter, giving real meaning to "Don't worry, be happy." and you begin to love the island for what it is not.  The local islanders are a bit slow to warm to you but once they do you will have made a friend for life.  Everywhere you go there are beautiful views of the lovely turquoise sea.  Almost every restaurant, the handful they have, are seated on the edge of the water, assurring you that you really are in the Caribbean.  You will feel like you have stepped back in time as you stroll the streets still lined with original colonial Bermudian architecture.  The island is not  some fancy fake imitation of what some designer thinks the Caribbean should be, it is the real thing.  Keep in mind, with the true Caribbean atmosphere there comes the lack of ameneties that many of the newly developed island getaways have to offer.
