Turks and Caicos Islands Sights

Pillory Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/14/2015

Fodor's Review

Just north of Cockburn Town on the protected west shore, it's said that Columbus made his New World landfall here. And why not? This is the prettiest beach on Grand Turk; it also has great off-the-beach snorkeling. As you enjoy the powdery white sand, you may be visited by one of the many potcakes (donkeys) that pass by. The Bohio Dive Resort is on Pillory Beach, so you can enjoy a wonderful lunch or a cold drink while there. Amenities : food and drink; parking (free); toilets. Best for : snorkeling; swimming; walking.
