BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The shore is Governor's Beach, the water is Columbus Landfall Marine National Park. Together, they make up Grand Turk's main beach area, within sight of the cruise ship pier and center.
  • Most historians believe Columbus made first landfall in the Bahamas, not Grand Turk, but the question has never been answered definitively, and a number of Caribbean islands lay claim to the distinction.
