So Beautiful.... So Relaxing.... This time we decided not to do an excursion and just lay out at the beach. It was so relaxing and beautiful. The water was so blue and peaceful to stare at. Luv it.

we visited this beach as it was right next to the ship port, small area of shops, mostly expensive jewellery. One side of the beach is sand, (we didn't visit this side as looked onto the ship), the other side is more rocky, but a lot quieter. the sun loungers and umbrellas provided by Grand Turk (have GTCC on them)...

This beach is right at the cruise terminal in Grand Turk! Nice clean beach with beautiful crystal clear water! It can get a little crowded if there are two cruise ships in port at the same time! Lounge chairs and umbrellas are available! Some are provided free of charge by Carnival while others are rented by local venders, Be sure... More

Reasonably newly built. The cruise port exit gives you access to the beach to the right or left. To the right from the duty free store, you will find a Mercury 7 display. Very educational about the John Glenn and his splash down near the island. Continuing around the plaza there are several shops. (the obligatory cruise jewelry shops too)... More

Absolutely the most beautiful beach I have ever seen and been on. The different blues of the ocean and the beautiful beach.

The ship docks right on to this beach in Grand Turk and is fairly new. When you come off the ship turn left and you are on the beach. All the green umbrellas and beds are free on 2nd and 3rd rows provided by the Cruise Centre. The locals set up their poor beds and umbrellas in first row and... More

Best place just to lay back and chill. Close to where the cruise ship stops. safe, friendly feel. Water is wonderful. Beach is very rocky in places so pay attention. but if you snorkel., the rocks are full of fish.

Lovely beach right at the cruise dock. Plenty of free beach chairs and umbrellas available (pick the green umbrellas with "Grand Turk" printed on them as these are complimentary). Be careful of those in the front rows that charge a fee of $20! We witnessed a fellow cruiser pay for their chair/umbrella, only to have a security guard come in... More
