Snorkel and Beach Escape
Snorkel and Beach Escape
Escape the crowds as you snorkel and relax at a small, intimate Grand Turk resort offering beach, bars, water activities, and the best restaurant on the island. After taking a taxi from the port area, you will arrive and be welcomed as a guest on your Grand Turk tour.
At check-in, the staff will schedule your lunch and snorkel departure and then point you to your included beach chair on the white-sand beach next to the turquoise blue water. There are hammocks under palm trees, an uncrowded beach to comb, and a small beach bar where you can relax with a rum punch or just sit and let the world melt away.
At the appointed time, you will meet your snorkeling boat at water's edge and head out in your small group, usually fewer than eight, to the famous Grand Turk Wall, 300 yards directly off the beach. Total time for the boat snorkel is approximately one hour. You will have the chance to see colorful sponges, coral, an abundance of tropical fish, and you may even catch sight of an eagle ray, stingray, turtle or dolphin. Your snorkeling gear is included.
Back on shore, if you are still looking for adventure on your Grand Turk shore excursion, there are several types of equipment, including kayaks ($15 US for 2 hours) and other activities available for rental.
In addition to a welcome drink, your program also includes a seafood sampler lunch of the best local seafood offerings available that day, which may include conch, lobster, fish and chicken prepared fresh by the Executive Chef. Meals also include yummy side dishes (depending on local availability). If you do not eat seafood, just let the staff know upon check-in. Additional drinks can be purchased from the bar.
As this special site is not designed for crowds, there is a maximum number of spaces available each day. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Tour duration is up to guest's discretion based on when they arrive and depart. It is the guest's responsibility to return to their ship by the ship's posted all aboard time.
We booked this online. It was easy to find transport to the resort & driver Jack Daniels Was very friendly & asked what time we wanted pick up for transport to ship. He was very punctual. Resort owner was very friendly! Our lunch, snapper w conch fritters, beans and rice was excellent! Snorkeling ( cost $45 pp if not booked w package) was very good. Our group was escorted in the water by one of the crew. We saw a lot of fish..no sharks! Would recommend this place. Water & beach were beautiful w no seaweed! Small pool was only for guests staying there; lodging was a small, tidy, modern looking 2 story bldg. if you want a quiet relaxing vacation I would recommend it.

This was a great beach, very beautiful. The boat ride to snorkeling was small but a fun ride. The area we went to at the wall was nice and the wall was neat to see. The lunch was good outdoor dining area right on the beach which was nice. highly recommended.

Very nice beach, a lot of fish and corals and very good food. The only thing I disliked was that there was no shower to take the sea water of after snorkeling.
