Grand Turk Cruise Port

January 2011

Grand Turk is a sleepy little island which has a "made for cruise" tourist port.

The water was crystal clear. There is a beach with numerous free lounge chairs within walking distance of the ship. It was a very nice free beach.

There is a very large Margaritaville at Grand Turk. There is a large swimming pool, cabanas, etc. But beware the prices. We were told that a Corona is $9 USD.

We walked down the beach, to the left, to a place called Jack's Shack. Nice little beach bar. Nothing fancy. Just a bar with a few tables and a limited menu. Beers here are $5.

We spent the afternoon talking with some fellow cruisers and enjoying some local beer.

The local beer is Turk Head. We had the "light" and it was very good. We also got a free shot of local rum, which was actually not bad. Janet was a really nice lady and fun to talk with.

What a beautiful day in paradise. Oops, it is 4:00, we gotta get back for champagne in the cabana....
