Beautiful beach, just steps from the cruise ship. The area on the left has nice sand, and is much more crowded. The water is swallowing, crystal clear, and warm. The beach on the left is more natural looking, and has rocks close to the waters edge. Both sides have plenty of sun or shade from the palm trees.

Grand Turk without question is beautiful! The beach is less than a three minute walk from the ship. The beach was crazy busy with two ships; Carnival Glory (our ship) and Carnival Sunshine. All the lounge chairs were taken or appeared to be taken. My friend and I decided we would walk a little further down to the non-busy part... More

Our experience was perfect. Ours was the only cruise ship in the port, and it seemed very few people were here. We had taken a snorkel boat excursion, and weren't ready to go back to the boat yet, so we hung out here for a while. To me the sand was clean, soft and powdery.. of course, with just a... More

Could not be more convenient. Just off the cruise port pier. A very short walk. Everything you need. Just take a towel. Lounge chairs are available. Food close by. Bathrooms close by. Vendors selling beer, rum punch, snacks, renting snorkels and masks. Clean beach. Seemed very safe. No one bothers your belongings. Great snorkeling. Lots of colorful fish to see.... More

This beach is right off the pier at the cruise port. Ok, it gets very busy with a couple of ships in port, but you can walk right into the gorgeous water and do a swim or snorkel without taking a taxi anywhere or even walking but a few feet off the pier. It's right next to Margaritaville in the... More
