Turks and Caicos Souvenirs | What to buy in Providenciales & Beyond

Wondering what to buy in the Turks and Caicos on your upcoming visit? There are quite a few Turks and Caicos souvenirs to buy on your vacation. The first and probably most iconic as a conch shell. And yes, you can find them on the beach, and are legally allowed to export these products from the Turks and Caicos.

There are also plenty of other things to buy in the Turks and Caicos during your holiday. It does not matter where I go, I always like to buy a few souvenirs as mementos from my trip. I often would send myself postcards, but that is sometimes problematic in certain countries. But it is something you can do in the Turks and Caicos as there are post offices that are easy to find!

One of the nice things for American visitors to the Turks and Caicos is that their official currency is the US Dollar, although they are not part of the United States. They are a British Protectorate, and the British Flag is represented on their flag, just like many other countries such as New Zealand and Australia. They also drive on the same side of the road as those from the UK.

With those few facts aside, explore the stunning Turks and Caicos like Christopher Columbus did in 1492 and then keep reading to hear all about shopping in the Turks and Caicos and which souvenirs you should keep an eye out for on your visit to this beautiful Caribbean country.

Turks and Caicos Souvenirs

Rum

Bring home a bottle of locally-produced rum, such as Bambarra Rum. It’s a delicious way to enjoy a taste of the islands.

Conch Shells

These beautiful shells can often be found discarded on the beaches after fisherman have extracted the conch meat from inside the shell. You will know that you have stumbled onto one of these shells when you see a small hole at the pointy end of the shell.

You can also buy conch shells all over the island. From beach vendors to shops in town, there are a variety of sizes and prices. My favorites by far, are the ones we found ourselves on the beach. While worthless to a vendor (on account of their hole from the fisherman) they are priceless to us!

Before you bring conch shells home, ensure you read the rules on buying conch for export from the Turks and Caicos. It also covers information on collecting shells from the beach.
