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.

Usually I prefer to head away from the cruise ships doc, however, the beauty of these beaches kept me close by. They're perfectly located at the end of the pier, and the water is beautiful. As you walk off the pier, with the ships behind you, going to the beach on the right will guarantee loud music, crowds and a fresh water pool. It also has beautiful sand and it's a very gentle lovely walk in to the water.
The beach on the left is alot quieter, few less people and rockier. The water is just a beautfiul, however, it's harder to go walk into the water because of the large amount of coral, so bring your swim shoes. If you take the time to walk past all the beach chairs onto the more rugged area of the shore, you'll find many beautiful, empty conch shells littering the sand. Whichever direction you choose to go, you'll find beach chairs waiting and welcoming you to sit down, relax, enjoy the sway of the coconut trees and the sound of the waves as they hit the shore. I lovely port I hope to visit again soon!
