While on Grand Turk for a few hours, we had a rental car and made sure to stop at this beach - so worth it! Absolutely beautiful beach (access was free), and, there was a great low key beach bar (part of the Bohio Resort) tucked at entrance to beach. To get there from Cockburn town, follow Front Street north... More

Great to walk barefoot on the beach. Water is clear and blue, as it is on all of the beaches in Grand Turk.

There was a lot of waves on the day we visited so I was unable to snorkel. The water was stirred up too much. Chairs are available for rent. The beach access was free. The cost for the taxi was $8.00 per person each way.

Our dive boat did a surface interval on Pillory Beach. It is a beautiful beach like most beaches on Grand Turk. The sand is soft and the water is crystal clear. I had read a lot on Trip Advisor about Pillory Beach and it lived up to the reviews.

This was recommended when we asked a taxi driver. Taxi fare was cheap.. Beautiful resort, geared to divers. They boast the "Third largest reef in the world"... However much for everyone.. Lay back and relax or go horseback riding, snorkeling or just swimming/sunning...

Our favourite experiences where in the morning! We would run into the water first thing every morning while we stayed on Pillory beach. then got our started. Staying at the Reef House made it so accessible. I would recommend sand slippers, there are lots of rocks, sea urchin, crab and right now lobsters. and right now.
