When it comes to lodging options, Grand Turk has a limited supply, as in just a handful outside of rental villas. This little resort is one of the island's best. Bohio has a lot going for it, including a smashing location on pretty Pillory Beach, in a semi-secluded spot on the island's northwest coast. It has a terrific restaurant in Guanahani, overseen by a talented South African chef, and a palm-fringed beach bar facing the sea (with a Saturday-night Reggae BBQ starring a local rake 'n' scrape band). It has a first-rate, inhouse PADI dive staff, and hands-on owners who are warm, congenial hosts. What it doesn't have are rooms approaching any level of poshness—while well-maintained and comfy, the 16 units have a sort of generic sameness. Still, all have patios or balconies with ocean views, and Beachfront King Superior rooms come with kitchenettes and full-size fridges. And at these prices, who's complaining? For divers, who flock here to explore the mile-deep Grand Turk Wall, and beach lovers in general, this is a terrific option.
