Grand Turk's west coast is known for having the best beaches, where the sand is soft and the surf is nice. To the north, the beaches are also nice but can be crowded, and along the east coast you'll encounter waters that are riddled with seagrass and other debris that make swimming difficult. Finally, the south coast is rocky and ideal for watersports.
There are several beaches to enjoy on the island. Snorkeling is available at some locations, if some members of your party are so inclined. To get additional information about any of these beaches simply click on the names of the ones you would like to know more about.
If you enjoy snorkeling, a location with that option is Governor's Beach. Governor's Beach can be accessed via Columbus Landfall National Park.
Another option worth considering is Murray Beach. Visitors can gain access to Murray Beach by driving just off nearest main to road to a smaller dirt road. Find parking along the road, then make your way through the trees, where you will find the beach.
Pillory Beach: Located on the island of Grand Turk beside the more crowded Governor's Beach, Pillory Beach is well known amongst avid divers and snorkelers as one of the top spots in Turks and Caicos to do both. Just 400 yards offshore, you'll begin to encounter a whole new world of underwater sea life that you will never forget.
