Grand Turk Island
Grand Turk Island is the largest island in the Turks. It is the administrative, historic, cultural and financial center of the territory, and has the second largest population of the islands at approximately 3,720 people. Cockburn Town is the territory's capital.
The Turks and Caicos Islands as a whole are a British Overseas Territory consisting of two groups of tropical islands, the larger Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks.
The Turks and Caicos are a leading international investment center for the offshore investor. The islands are a (zero tax) jurisdiction and therefore have no taxes on income, capitol gains, corporate profits or estates.
In addition, tourism is a major business here; the seven mile Grace Bay Beach on the Island of Providenciales is rated by travel experts as one of the best beaches in the world, and all inclusive resorts, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving are major draws.
