Restaurant Selectios and Crime Rate

OK, two totally different subjects, but after reading some posts, wanted to address both.

Is it true that on Saturday and Sundays (unless a cruise ship is in port) the only restuarant open on the island is at the Osprey Hotel? How many total restaurants are there on the island?

I read a (only one) post that crime against tourists is getting out of hand on Grand Turk? The US advisory does not state anything alarming. And we know, of course, to exercise common sense when traveling abroad.

Off the issue, can you rent a golf cart on Grand Turk?

The Restaurant at Bohio, Saltraker Inn and Sandbar should all be open as well as others. I think the cruise port will be closed when no ships are in. I would not worry about crime on Grand Turk unless you plan to be in a more remote "locals" bar drinking or wandering a remote area after dark. Golf carts were available on my last visit. Horseback rides on the beach are also fun on "non" cruise ship days. Maybe by checking some business web sites you can get addtl info.

Some restaurants are nearly always open on Grand Turk but it is an art form to find the 'right' one. no Sand Bar saturdays, no Chinese sundays, music venues most nights. new deli, Joan's Place, is open with great salads and sandwiches and take out on Saturdays. You will never starve and the challenge is in finding the 'in' spot - not the same every week. Bohio now has band music and bbq on saturday nights. The Osprey Beach Hotel is the standby for a bbq dinner and good rake and scrape band music on Sunday night. Your best find though could be locals grilling conch on the seawall? When cruise ships are in check out Jack's Shack on the beach North of the cruise center.
