Nice cruise stop

Nice place with a nice group of shops. Surrounded by some nice beaches. There are some good places to get some food as well.

We were forced to walk through after getting off the cruise ship. A lot of cheap alcohol here if that's what you're looking for. Didn't notice much else. It doesn't take long to get through.

The cruise ships dock right by the beach. Walk into the cruise center and out the east side of the main building. There are limited shops to the north and south. Margaritaville is on the north. Also on the north and south sides are free beach chairs and umbrellas. A review that I read before my visit said to go... More

I found Margaritaville to be a kind of bizarre place shops full of stuff with Grand Turk written on it at inflated prices, I mean how many T-shirts do you need or key fobs ? The food is okay but expensive and the drinks would knock one of the local donkeys out they are that strong but again not cheap,... More

stop for carnival---it was nice to just get off boat on first stop of trip and walk to a free beach , then walk around the shopping area, walking thru a busy Maragaritaville just taking it easy. Beach was nice clean nice snorkeling--if you want just a couple chairs its free--all else there are minor charges for.

Paid about $40 for an island tour, which was offered on our Cruise Ship= HAL Koningsdam. All we saw were lots of cars on blocks-without tires, landfill, cemetery, slummy areas, unacceptable restrooms and some smelly donkeys. Guide kept telling us to be sure and come back, but I didn't see anything anyone else would want to see. Show us the... More

Went with young family on a Carnival cruise. Our first port stop was Grand Turk. We had no plans other than to use a beach. We'd heard this port has a beach walking distance from the ship. It couldn't be more true as its literally off the cruise ship dock! And wow, what a spectacular beach and atmosphere. It is... More

This was one of our cruise ship stops. First time and I was looking forward to it. Glad I went but won't need to go again! I was a little disappointed with the beach.The Cruise Center is located on Governor's Beach . Sand is fine, the set up is great but the water has a lot of coral. I love... More
