Just walk off the ship and turn right. Walk along the shore to a sandy cove loaded with conch shells. Take a snorkel and mask and you have a free excursion

Folklore has it that Columbus landed at this spot on Grand Turk. Perhaps he did, perhaps he didn't. It is still a national park but one in need of repair. The wharf has been closed due to deterioration. The view and the beach are spectacular.

Spectacular beach, secluded, shaded with wooden benches to sit on, crystal clear water, even had a stingray swim past me in the water! Watch the Passenger ships arrive and leave Port.

Great place - also called Governor's Beach - to collect sea glass and shells. There is an old abandoned ship on site too.

We were looking to have a nice relaxing beach day and most everyone gets off the ship and heads to the beach and pool offered at the nearby Margaritaville. With two cruise ships in port, it was extremely busy and loud so we went for a walk and ended up at the Columbus Landfall National park where there is a... More

The beaches near the cruise terminal are packed with people, grab some people, rent a taxi and relax in a quiet setting where you can actually see sand instead of just people!

This was by far the best part of our trip. There was a gentleman, Trevor, who was selling beach loungers and umbrellas. My sister and I rented one and took turns walking the beach. We each found empty conch shells and sea glass. Humpback whales were frolicking out at see, too. The water was gorgeous and was a wonderful way... More

Even for the beach, it's not worth the taxi drive. STAY NEAR THE CRUISE TERMNINAL you'll save the taxi bill. The beach are much more clean and anyway there is absolutly nothing to see in "town".
