Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos

The first stop on our cruise (recap part 1 & part 2) was the beautiful island of Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos islands. This island was stunningly beautiful, all white sand and clear beautiful beaches.




When we arrived here we went for a little walk down the beach before we were going on our trolley tour. I would highly recommend this tour, it took just over an hour and a half but you got to see almost all of the island and it was reasonably priced ($30 approx). With a short tour then you get to spend the rest of the day at the beach! Plus you get to ride in a trolly, who doesn’t want to do that?




The island has some beautiful historic homes right on the beach. We also got to see the old salt ponds that are no longer in use. It was a very interesting and informative tour.




Of course no trip anywhere is complete without trying the local brew, I highly recommend this one!




After the tour we headed to Margaritaville for lunch. I know Margaritaville is cheesy and overpriced but they make a strawberry margarita to die for and best nachos in the entire world. I am going to attempt to recreate the volcano nachos but I doubt I will come close!

After Margaritaville we headed to the beach for some swimming and snorkelling and then headed back to the ship.




Anyone visit Turks & Caicos before?

Any Margaritaville fans?

What’s your favourite Margarita flavour?

  1. I love Grand Turk, was just there in March and did a 6km run around the salt ponds, there are trails for hiking/running, we saw wild horses and donkeys, they were following us for a while while we ran. It was awesome! Sounds like you had a great time!
