Although renting a cabana seems to be very popular for many at Half Moon Cay, we opted not to. The beach is very nice, probably one of the nicest beaches we've ever been to. Don't do like I did and forget to put sunblock on your face. I got a mild sunburn on my forehead, and it was kind of pink for a couple of days.
This was our third visit to San Juan, one of our favorite ports. We opted to explore Old San Juan on our own, visiting several of the shops, and admiring the architecture of the old buildings. One short day in port just doesn't seem to be long enough.
This was our first visit to Grand Turk, but hopefully not our last. We, along with some other friends, rented golf carts and explored the island on our own. I was really fascinated with the little island. It is very "rustic", like the rural areas of West Virginia (only flat) in the Caribbean. The gift shops at the port are typical of what you would find at most ports (jewelry, clothing, duty free items such as alcohol and tobacco products, magnets, key chains, etc.).
