The first port of call on the Southern Caribbean Cruise leaving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida is Grand Turk. After spending two nights and a full day at sea,we were so ready to go ashore and explore. We decided not to take an excursion since there was a nice beach, shopping, and a Margaritaville with a nice pool at the port area.
Welcome to Grand Turk!
The beach in front of the shopping area provides plenty of shade and chairs for relaxing. All of this is free to use.
A massage on the beach. It doesn't get much better than this! The massages we got were wonderful!
The boats waiting to take people on their excursions. The boats leave pretty quickly leaving the beach clear and free for swimming.
The water was clear and clean.
We snorkeled from the beach. There is not much coral, but fish and other sea life are abundant in this area.
We walked a good ways down the beach and came upon this beautiful site.
This is the only port on this cruise that has a beautiful beach where we docked.
There are quite a few little shops in this area. We found cute dresses, shirts, and a few other tings really cheap.
We had a nice relaxing day at this port.I would love to go back and maybe see more of the island next time.
