About these ratings

Dive companies will no doubt try to sell you on a snorkeling excursion off the shores of Pillory Beach on Grand Turk's northwest coast. By all means, let them. Recent travelers advocate for the excellent swimming conditions and bevy of stingrays, spotted drums and eagle ray fish visible just about 300 to 400 yards from the beach.

If you're only on Grand Turk for the day, keep in mind that Pillory Beach — a short taxi ride from the cruise port  is quieter beach than Governor's Beach, which sees more cruise traffic. Travelers recommend the powdery sand and small waves for beachgoers seeking some quiet relaxation.

You can enjoy Pillory for free, but snorkeling and diving trips will cost you money. The nearby Bohio Dive Resort can 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.
