The water is gorgeous! The beach was not crowed. Great place to snorkel. This beach is outside of the cruise port. Can take a taxi, walk or rent golf cart (recommend renting from outside of port - much cheaper).

We got local information about the beaches in Turks with clear water and great snorkeling...this was one of them. We saw all kinds of tangs, white and black striped fish, yellow and blue fish and they were playing in the purple coral. We didn't go...More

We went for the snorkeling. Not so good since the sandy bottom stirs up and clouds the water. However, the sea shells on the beach were beautiful! I think it was $16 round trip per person for the taxi. Maybe $10 to rent a chair....More

If you think a pool is clear just come here. The days we were here AFTER the cruise ships leave is nothing short of splendid. Have captain Trevor (aka captain Meat) take you on excursion to Gibbs Cay while you are at it. I simply...More

We were on the island for three days before making our way here. The water is crystal clear and the sand is powdery soft.

Pillory Beach is beautiful! Spent the day snorkeling with my husband and our friend. Beautiful white sand beach and clear water. We even caught footage of a sea turtle! We were on a cruise with Carnival and caught a taxi to the beach. It was...More

After our first plan to rent golf carts and tour Grand Turk failed, we found a taxi driver who recommended Pillory Beach. I'm so glad we found her. She gave us an informative narration as she drove us to the beach, and then picked us...More
