The Best places for snorkeling

 

There are several places with good norkeling on the Caribbean island of Grand Turk:

  • Governor's Beach: snorkeling on Governor's beach is right off the beach
     
  • Pillory Beach: the best snorkeling at Pillory Beach is about 400 yeards offshore
     
  • White Sands Beach: on calm days, about 700 ft (213 m) and 900 ft (274 m) feet from Boaby Point to the East

Governor's Beach is located directly by the cruise port.

What you will see
 

You will share the beach with hundreds of other people on days when a cruise ship is in town.  Once you swim less than 100ft off the beach there will be only very few people and anorkeling there will be fun.
