When you're done enjoying the stingray entertainment, ask your guide about the trail that leads up to a high point on this little island. It's an easy walk and the views are amazing!

Great place to see sting rays in a non captive setting! Play with them and snorkel in the pristine waters around Grand Truk.

Worth while, just a few hours but a beautiful experience, going over in a boat with an excellent guide and also doing some snorkeling at the border of the ridge.

The water was warm, the beach was soft, the stingrays were friendly like little puppies in the water. The snorkeling was decent. The captain of our ship was hot! The music was wonderful and the weather perfect. It was definitely a good time.

I was on the Carnival Victory and as part of an excursion we ended up here. It was truly amazing. Beautiful waters, secluded, sting rays (all in a controller environment). It's everything you see in pictures and movies but in reality. It's probably the most beautiful beach i've ever seen.

Saw tons of fish, and petted a shark. This was one of the best sites we ever went to. We went with White Sands tours and liked it better than the cruise tours.

If you go to Grand Turk, be sure to make your way here. The sting rays swim right up to you, and it is not over crowded.

Captain Tim with Crystal Sea Adventures was great and allowed me and my family to take as much time as we wanted swimming with the sting rays and snorkeling. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever been to. I would highly recommend Gibbs Cay to anyone traveling to Grand Turk.

We did this as part of a Chukka Tour, and we had a positively great time! Our tour guides on our boat were great, and they took us snorkeling as well as out to feed the sting rays. They took care of everything we needed, and looked after the safety of everyone in the water. Tip: If you want to... More
