|About these ratings|
Dive companies will no doubt try to sell you on a snorkel off Pillory Beach of Grand Turk. By all means, let them -- professional travel writers and real life travelers advocate for the excellent swimming conditions and bevy of stingrays, spotted drums and eagle ray fish visible just about 300 to 400 yards off this northwestern Grand Turk coast. And if you're only on Grand Turk for the day, keep in mind that Pillory Beach is a quieter beach to enjoy than Governor's Beach, which sees a lot of cruise traffic.
You can enjoy Pillory for free, but snorkeling and diving trips will cost you money. The nearby Bohio Dive Resort can also help you arrange a trip and provide you with diving gear: Visit the hotel's website for more information on prices, or you can arrange a snorkel or diving trip with an outside dive company. Some of the island's most popular include Blue Water Divers, Cecil Ingham's Sea Eye Diving and Oasis Divers.
