Travel Information for Grand Turk Cruise Ship Guests

The beautiful Governor's Beach on Grand Turk.

All cruise ships to the Turks and Caicos stop only at Grand Turk. It’s not feasible for cruise ship guests to visit any other main island in the country due to time constraints.

Very little pre-planning is necessary for cruise ship arrivals. All visa and entry matters are handled by the cruise lines, so landing is simple.

Before You Arrive at Grand Turk

Shops at the Grand Turk Cruise Center.

Before you stop at Grand Turk, we recommend that you see Guide for Cruise Visitors to Grand Turk and Things to Do on Grand Turk to determine how you’d like to spend your day. Depending on what you choose, you may have to pre-book an activity or a rental vehicle.

Restaurants and Dining

See Grand Turk Restaurants and Dining.

Two restaurants are easily-accessible from the Cruise Center: Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville and Jack's Shack.

There are quite a few restaurants and grocery stores in the Cockburn Town area.

Gift and Souvenir Shopping

See Grand Turk Shopping.

Much of the Cruise Center consists of tourist-oriented shops. Unfortunately, almost all of the merchandise available is mass-produced and re-branded items from Asia, or generic jewellery and Caribbean gifts.

If you’re looking for an authentic gift or souvenir, the best choices are had at the Salt House, at the rather limited National Museum shop, or at one of the smaller stores in the oceanfront area of Cockburn Town.
