One of the most beautiful beaches that I have ever been on. The weather was great and the water was blue. The sand felt like I was walking on baby powder at times.
There are a few bars that are staffed by the Carnival crew from the ship.
The bars on the beach need to play the same music at the same time. There are a couple of the bars on the beach are close together enough that all you here is noise when sitting between them because they are both playing different music loudly. I say...play it loud if you want.....just play it from the same feed at both bars. If you can't do that, then you have to play it quieter at each bar.
Went on a Half Day Sail and Snorkel with the Turtles that we booked through shoreexcursionsgroup.com The crew was awesome and they ensured that we had a good time and they tried to avoid the other big excursions that were in the area so that we could have smaller crowds in the water.
San Juan is full of history and we took a visit to the fort. If you are interested in history that is a great place to visit. There is some shopping in San Juan and a few local bars worth checking out. If you want to just stay with tourists there is a Senor Frogs close to the port. Most of the other stops are beach and water related so this stop didn't really seem to fit the itinerary for me.
This was one of the best stops for me. We had a snorkel tour that we setup independently and there were only 2 other couples with us. We were taken to two different snorkel sites. We saw some nurse sharks on the reef that were very friendly and our guide swam down to the bottom and was petting them to put everyone at ease. The second stop was on the Grand Turk wall which was beautiful and there were several fish to see.
After that we returned to the beach and visted a bar called Jack's Place and had a couple of beers and some of the best jerk chicken that I have ever had.
After this stop we walked on the beach to Margaritaville's pool and swam up to the bar until it was time to reboard the ship. Beers were more expensive here than they were on the ship. If you can believe that.
