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.

Grand Turk is my favorite place to do nothing, we laid out on the beach under an umbrella eating a massive plate of nachos from Margaritaville, drinking 2 for $5 cups of rum punch and an order of jerk chicken from jack's shack. This was the perfect port for our last stop as all we wanted to do was just chill and unwind.

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.

Thought Grand Turk was good for shopping and the locals were friendly. I took a cab to the downtown and tried some conch fish and rum punch. Excellent! I was returned to the dock by local taxi man Daniel Hall (Hall's Taxi and Tour Services 1-649-244-6892) who gave my party great history and perspective abut the island. He directed us to many points of interest with historical value and put a personal spin on life on the island and Caribbean culture. I highly recommend him.

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.

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.
