Top Answers To Grand Turk Travel Questions
Governor's Beach in Cockburn Town is probably the easiest spot, giving you good access to the beachfront bars and restaurants here. More pristine stretches of beach line the side of the island that comprises Columbus Landfall Marine National Park, a 1,280-acre preserve that covers the entire western flank of Grand Turk. And given that the island's only six miles long by a mile wide, you're never really that far from a great beach spot.
I would recommend the Reef Snorkel and Stingray Safari, it is a little more expensive,but definitely worth it.
According to CruiseCritic.com, Governor's Beach is the island's most secluded stretch of sand. The site also recommends Pillory Beach for its great shore-diving. Site is also a good resource for local transport info, location of the cruise terminal, etc. http://bit.ly/9Yl4oc
