Fodor's Expert Review White Sands Beach Resort

Grand Turk Cruise Terminal, Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Though these condos are next to the cruise-ship port with its almost daily action, you're still on a quiet stretch of beach made just for relaxing. All the units are identical, fully furnished one-bedroom apartments with full kitchens and a living and dining area; 12 units have direct views of the beach and ocean. A small pool is on the property, but you can also walk next door to use the huge pool at Margaritaville in the cruise-ship port when a ship is in. The restaurant here, the newly updated Captain Hook's Grill, has some of the best casual food on the island. You need a car or bicycle to get to Cockburn Town, but excursion companies will pick you up on the beachfront. A huge gazebo on the beach is the perfect place to watch the sunset. Amenities include the Santa Maria Gaming Saloon, as well as limited spa services on the beach by OceanScapes Spa.


  • on a beautiful stretch of beach
  • gazebo is great for watching the sunset


  • far enough from the main hub that you need a car or taxi
  • busy area when a ship is in port
