Avoid the beaches close to the cruise port, as they are rockier than those on other parts...

About Grand Turk Island

Don’t go to Grand Turk looking for a bustling shopping district; despite housing the capital of Turks and Caicos, this quiet island feels like a casual small town, where locals know each other by name.

No excursion necessary. Just walk off the boat and sit in the sun, snorkel, walk down to Jack's Shack, etc.

This is my 3rd trip to Grand Turk and love it as a really nice beach right off the boat, (technically you could jump off the boat and you're in the swimming area-I don't recommend it). We like to get off the ship and go to Jimmy Buffets for a nice lunch. I usually get the calamari and a burger, with a very nice and strong pina colada. After that we secure a free chaise lounge chair and bask in the sun while taking periodic dips in the water, usually nice and warm where I dive in all the way. I don't care to take any excursion, but the pools at Jimmy Buffets are really nice and there are a few things to do there for a few hours. It's one of my favorite places, so it gets a 5-star.

Wonderful snorkeling directly off the ship. The beach and pool are all free and chairs/umbrellas are free. Did not need to spend a fortune on excursion.

Be sure to go to Margaritaville. The pool was beautiful along with Jimmy Buffett's music and the laid back feel. Be sure to order the LARGE margarita!

The best part about Turks is the fact that you walk off the ship ... and the beach is right there. No taxi hassle or worries of making it back to the ship. The views are amazing .... and awesome snorkeling.

By far my favorite! This island is paradise. Last year we rented Hummers & did that excursion touring the island. This year I did a beach day. I hung out at Margaritaville & the beach. It was the best day ever! My friend did Snorkeling with Reef & Ray's Beach Getaway. She loved it & had a fantastic time.

Get your passport stamped at the 'post office' or the 'police station'. It's an experience!

Margaritatville is very nice but very expensive !! I would take a left off the ship and spend the day at Jack's Shack about a 3 block walk down the beach and play with Topher the dog.
