Beautiful clear blue water to swim in but not my favorite beach. Its very crowded since it is right off the cruise ship and just outside of margaritaville. You get to stare at the cruise ship you came in on. It is pretty rocky, water shoes would be a good idea. Overall its okay if your just looking to cool... More

This beach has lots of rocks in the water and in the sand. Make sure you wear water shoes. Not overly crowded and nice to have shops in the same area. Not really the best if you are into snorkeling but the watery is pretty nice. The best part is that is right next to Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville.

This is our second time in Grand Turk via Carnival cruise and I must say that we all love coming back here. This beach is just right by the cruise port and having Margaritaville on site is a plus! A shopping center andFlorider is in the area too. We will come back again

Must say that this beach was a disappointment. I didn't think about swimming there due to the huge crowd (2 cruise ships were docked that day) and the uninviting water full of black see weeds. The deeper waters looked quite nice but those were beyond the cordoned swimming area. There are many beach chairs on the beach, but those are... More

Many historians believe that Grand Turk is possibly the first island Christopher Columbus reached during his discovery of the New World in 1492 After having done a Carnival tour of this 18 km2 island we spent most of our time shopping in the Grand Turk cruise ship terminal (my wife’s favourite past time)! Before returning to our ship we relaxed... More

We stopped her and was able to do some snorkeling. We went out and followed the buoy line and saw a barracuda!! It was awesome. There was a guy selling coconuts for a few dollars which were delicious. We did a picture stop next to the Drunk Bird Statue. Mark as helpful if you read this :)

We visited the beach after getting off of our Carnival cruise last week. The water was clear. There were a few rocks under the water along the beach which the sea urchins like to hang around. The locals are on the beach selling water, beer and soda, water excursions and also Horse rides. We had no problem finding chairs as... More

This location was so so convent coming off of a cruise ship. The water had lots of seaweed in it, the sand was rocky, and the sand remained stirred up in the water, affecting visibility, but my kids still enjoyed snorkeling there. It got really crowded when the 2nd ship docked. The pool was really nice, but the wifi wouldn't... More

This beach is right by the cruise ship terminal. It is a little rocky along the shoreline so I definitely recommend wearing aqua socks but the water is comfortable and if you have a water camera you can get some great pictures of the cruise ships
