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

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
