Beautiful beach with crystal waters. Some areas are rocky in water. Quick taxi ride from cruise port $8 each way/person. All of the amenities needed for a great beach day. Some shady areas along with plenty of beachfront. Rentals for chairs, snorkel gear, paddle boards are available for purchase.

A naturally beautiful beach, about 20-25 minutes from the cruise pier. Nice white sand and clear water. Nice for young children to play. It costs $8 per person each way in a taxi. The ONLY bar on the beach has expensive food and drinks. $16 for 2 beers and a soda. I didn't order food, but it looked about $40... More

We rented a golf cart at the pier and drove along the coast and ended up at a dive resort on Pillory Beach. The beach was perfect. Soft sand and crystal clear water. No seaweed. You can get great food and drink and snorkel equipment at the Bohio Dive Resort there. You can pay for a dive or snorkel excursion... More

If I had to compare the beauty to governor's beach, I would absolutely pick governor's beach by the cruise port. The good thing about this beach is the nicer chair rental and clean bathroom facility compared to governor's. That may have changed since we last visited so check the reviews there. The food was decent here (fried fish, conch salad... More

This beach is so beautiful. One of the best beaches I have ever been to. It was so crystal clear and the sand was soft to the touch. The weather was hot. The island was pretty and the people were nice.

Easily accessible from the cruise ship terminal. Make sure you budget at least a couple of hours, especially if you plan to snorkel/snuba/scuba. The water is crystal clear and the sand powdery. Suitable for all ages and palm tress provide shade for those who seek it. There is a beach bar that serves up a variety of alcoholic and soft... More

While on Grand Turk for a few hours, we had a rental car and made sure to stop at this beach - so worth it! Absolutely beautiful beach (access was free), and, there was a great low key beach bar (part of the Bohio Resort) tucked at entrance to beach. To get there from Cockburn town, follow Front Street north... More

Great to walk barefoot on the beach. Water is clear and blue, as it is on all of the beaches in Grand Turk.

There was a lot of waves on the day we visited so I was unable to snorkel. The water was stirred up too much. Chairs are available for rent. The beach access was free. The cost for the taxi was $8.00 per person each way.
