Great cruise port beach

SunRay Beach is a great spot to spend the day while on a cruise. There are a few stony areas near the dock, but you only have to go a few steps down the beach to avoid them.

This is an excellent beach. It's right next to the cruise ship pier. There is plenty of chairs to lay on, sand to dig in and water to swim in.

We got off our ship. Chilled out on the sunbeds. Had a rum or three. Enjoyed the various bars on the seashore. There were a few shops too. Chilled out relaxed place. Great day

Easy access right from your cruise ship, after you've gone through the "duty free". There's numerous stores and restaurants close by. Depending on how many ships are in dock the beach can be crowded but it still a lovely place to swim, kick back and catch some rays.

Wow, what a great beach and super easy access from the ship. Use common sense. Don't bring your passport and leave it on the beach when you swim. One lady on our ship lost her's on this beach. Margaritaville makes a killer Pina Colada. Don't miss it.

As people at the forum advised to go to other beaches, I did not expect much of this beach. BUT: right across the cruise ship (for lunch at the ship just a few minutes walk back), the sand is a bit rocky but no sandals are needed, free chairs, a lot of shade underneath the trees (just must move your...

We stopped here for a part of a day as part of a cruise. Nice beach to swim and snorkel. The beach goes on for many miles so a long walk is possible. While walking, I came across one of the snorkeling excursions and just jumped in the water where they were and there was a nice reef with amazing... More

This is my place in the world! The best place ever. The right temperature of water and the weather is excellent. I would be back over and over again. We spent a great afternoon here last week.

Grand Turk isn't much, but this nice little beach right by the Cruise Ship pier makes for a good spot to lounge in the sun and get served right there on the sand. Take this cruise port stop for what it is, a nicer swimming pool than the boat! ;)
