The beach and water were exceptional. However, the bottom was really rocky and hazardous. Saw a number of injuries to feet and ankles during the day. The Carnivsl crew did a nice job of moving people on and off the boat. Not an easy task. A few nice shops and of course a Jimmy Buffett's for a cold drink and food. Thankfully a port lacking a Señor Frog!!!!! It was a nice break from sailing. Not sure I would like to spend a lengthy stay on the Turks but maybe I didn't get a good enough glimpse to be fair.

I took a carnival cruise and this was one of the ports of call. I am so glad I did not book an excursion and just decided to hit the beach early and kick back. Servers from Margaritavlille walk on the beach if you want a drink. There is also snorkel, clam shell and other beach items available for rent at reasonable prices. The water is beyond gorgeous. We are avid snorkelers and we were amazed at how many different types of fish that were hanging out just a few feet from shore. Great snorkeling without an excursion necessary. What a relaxing day... Oh and the ship is RIGHT THERE, so you can get back on for lunch or whatnot.

This is a great beach just off the Cruise Ship terminal. A place to get away from the chaos of the pool at Jimmy Buffets and perhaps best experienced the last hour before final boarding of the cruise ship when the crowds are the lightest and you have this oasis to yourself.

The thing is with this beach is that you can just walk into the water and swim a few yards to see great fish. Try to visit when a cruise ship isn't in, and there are heaps of fish. All sorts, all colours. Try to find the old ship's anchor and the old cannon. Easy, accessible and great.

When our ship cruised into the Grand Turk island of Turks and Caicos, we could hear the music and beat coming off from this place across the water. You could dance your way off the ship to the these Caribbean tunes. After all the usual sightseeing (Lighthouse, College and a host of other places) narrated by a ex-traffic controller turned driver/guide, we found time to laze and snorkel diving off the coast of this Beach.

Absolutely fantastic place.
