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.
You'll discover a large selection of beaches to consider on the island. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, if some of the people in your group enjoy the underwater scene. Simply click on specific names for a detailed guide to that part of the coast.
