Grand Turk lies to the east of the Caicos Islands and is separated from them by the abysmally deep, 22-mile-wide Columbus Passage and a 7,000-foot trench in the west known as the Turks Islands Passage or the Columbus Passage. This trench is an ideal area for the movement of migrating humpback whales to the Silver Bank in winter. This topography also enables some of the most awesome wall dives along Grand Turk.

Another outstanding beach, is Pillory Beach on the northwestern side of Grand Turk, which is usually quiet and with dazzling, powdery white-sand, flecked with pink coralline skeletons.
