This is a great free way to spend the day off the ship. The chairs are free as well as the bathrooms next to Margaritaville. The swimming is wonderful and there are lots of fish to see. There are people that will bring you drinks if you want. The cruise ship docks in front of the beach but there is... More

A group of 8 of us stopped here while on a cruise. The sand is wonderful and the water is absolutely crystal clear there are some large rocks out in the ocean so be cautious as you walk out not to cut your feet but the rocks aren't everywhere and you can see them to avoid them. The fish swim... More

This is a picturesque beach located just steps from the cruise pier. The water is crystal clear and it's the perfect temperature. Yes the cruise ships are docked in front of the beach, but it’s how you got to the island--and it's a great beach. We didn’t think the ships ruined the view though. We took some great pictures of...

It is wonderful to find a public beach so close to the Cruise ship and free to use. The water is beautiful & clear. While I could see why some would complain about the cruise ship being in the way of the views -but it is free with lounge chairs. Plus, their are lots of shops close by and Margaritaville... More

The beach is okay, not the greatest beach of the Islands, but decent enough for an afternoon if you're on a cruise ship. There's sunbeds, but some of the locals will quietly walk by and ask you if you're interested in drugs. If the cruise ship is in, well it just towers the entire beach and spoils what could be...

You are immediately on a near-perfect beach. Thick, white sand with free lounge chairs all up and down the beach. It's beautiful. The arrival terminal is a group of delightful buildings - new structures - that are filled with nice shops, a duty free store and a Margaritaville restaurant. There isn't much else around this location. It was clearly recently... More

The beach is just off the cruise terminal, with all the services (including food, bathrooms, and shopping) nearby. The water is guaranteed to please you, transparent and just the right temperature. It is possible to do a short walk on the beach. There's also a swimming pool if don't like to step on the sand.

This is a public beach, if you are on a cruise ship, just walk right off of the pier and plenty of people will sell you an umbrella set up. The water was clear, restrooms were close, and the sand was lovely. Yes, there will be a cruise ship directly in your view, but unless you are going to someone's... More

My wife and I are beach lovers and frequently will avoid the adventure tours to go lay in the sun and sip fruity drinks. Having not sailed to Grand Turk before, we were unsure of where to go, so based off Trip Advisor we chose this beach located directly outside of the cruise terminal. It is a decent beach, but...
