Turks and Caicos beaches are second to none, so spend your time on a Grand Turk tour that takes you to the sand. It just so happens this resort is located on one of the finest beaches in the area: Grand Turk's Pillory Beach. Here, the small island's stunning coastline is also the perfect place to relax and enjoy British High Tea.
Upon arrival, stop at the check-in desk to schedule your Tea Time. Then pick up a beach chair and enjoy the white-sand beach next to the turquoise blue water. There are hammocks under palm trees, the famous Pillory Beach to comb, and a small beach bar where you can purchase a rum punch or just sit and let the world melt away.
At the appointed time, return to the restaurant area, usually reserved only for hotel guests, where a selection of homemade assorted fresh sandwiches, sweets, cakes, scones and your choice of English tea or a glass of cold rose wine will be served at your private table. This is a truly unique experience in Turks and Caicos!
This Grand Turk excursion is not designed for crowds, so there is a limited number of spaces available each day. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Note: Tour duration is up to guest's discretion based on when they arrive and depart. It is the guest's responsibility to get to the resort and to return to the ship by the ship's posted all aboard time.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful day on Grand Turk. The resort was private and was away from the cruise port, i.e not a lot of people. You need to take a cab, it is not in walking distance. High tea was awesome, I had the rose. Food was delicious and filling for two. The staff was very friendly upon arrival. They told us that tea was waiting whenever we were ready just come and find them. They took us to the beach and set out chairs for us. The beach was clean and the water clear. Highly recommend
I am so happy that I decided to surprise my niece with this excursion. The beach was clean and the water crystal clear. The staff was very friendly too. The high tea was better than some of the ones I have been to back at home. You get a full pot of tea and the food was so filling that we couldn't finish the dessert. The only con to this was the port times meant that we couldn't linger longer. Also they may want to put a little less butter on the sandwiches but that may be a personal preference.

The word on the ship was that there isn't a lot to do on Grand Turk. We chose the day at the beach was outstanding. The beach was beautiful and relaxing. We met some nice people who became our cruise buddies. The high tea was also very nice, relaxing, plenty of time to just enjoy. My favorite tour of the whole cruise. Should I mentinon that there were no peddlers at the beach? Heaven.
First you make a reservation for your ""High Tea"", which is plenty for lunch, then you are given a beach chair, in good shape. Then you relax! Need to taxi to the excursion site; not difficult to arrange.
