No venders here. Just a little public beach with a couple of benches and a huge shade tree. We really enjoyed the beach.

Not much to see and not even the place Columbus landed according to most scholars. Save your time and just hang out down at Jack's Shack....

This is a pretty big area (I might be wrong, but it seems to stretch from the Cruise Ship area down quite a ways) but there are a series of nice turn-offs with great beaches.

Columbus Landfall National Park is all around the island. The locals respect the water, reef and fish without question. Unfortunately on land they do not share quite the same respect of their surroundings. They were absolutely incredible people and great to talk to and share recipees.

The quality of the diving is superb. Water is crystal clear. The wall goes down in terraces with great coral displays and larger fish species and coral galore. If you enjoy great wall diving you have a treasure trove of excellent sites to explore in this stunning natural wonder of the undersea world.

We were diving along the wall running along Grand Turk; the corals and fish life were in good shape. The beach was clean.
