Excellent Beach Day in Grand Turk

Approx 500 yards up the beach from the cruise terminal, be prepared for great drinks, hospitality and beach time. Wish I'd heard of this place sooner. Topher and his friends are a riot and welcome all to the beach. Loved it! Oh, Note to next travelers: Bring and use your sunscreen !

I guess I'm in the minority here. Another reviewer said they weren't charged for chairs, but when we got there, they wanted $10 for each chair (not in the best condition) plus umbrella. We negotiated, but it turned me off. The beach was uncrowded but excursion boats were tethered there so you had to be careful. Topher the dog is... More

I've been to Grand Turk several times and just found out about this place last year. I wish I would have known about it all along! Great food, drinks and Topher is the sweetest dog you'll ever meet! Highly recommend checking this place out the next time you're in GT!

Definitely, NOT a tourist trap! Great food*/bar right on the beach! Greeted by Jack personally. Great staff. Beach volleyball, beautiful pristine beach. Free entertainment by "Topher" the resident Goldendoodle who will entertain you non-stop!!!! You can access Jack's Shack by taking a 15 minute walk from the Cruise pier down the beach, or by taxi. Don't be alarmed if you... More

When researching prior to our cruise, this was one of THE places to visit when on Grand Turk. After a loooonnng beach walk from the cruise dock, it was well worth it to make the hot pilgrimage. We were greeted by hospitable staff and two friendly beach dogs who were permanent fixtures of Jack's Shack. We were seated under an... More

Jack's Shack is one of our favorite places to visit since 2012. Jack is so hospitable and we love the Caribbean's most famous dog, Topher. So much fun every visit. Can't wait to go back again next summer!
