The Turks and Caicos before tourism was made up of settlements of people in different areas of the islands that mostly relied on fishing their local waters as a source of survival. Conch, Lobster and Fish was our islands’ main export to islands like the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Turks and Caicos offered seafood while Hispañola offered back their produce. At the time, this was the island’s only industry. Then Club Med Resort came along and built the first hotel on Grace Bay Beach in 1985. This started our tourism boom and eventually made the TCI into what it is today.
Our waters remain plentiful with fish, conch and lobster that our visitors now have the opportunity to catch on their own with an array of fishing charter options.
