Grand Turk is a very beautiful little island. We got off the ship and walked left to the point of the island. It was very windy, but we saw lots of interesting things to photograph. Then we came back to Margaritaville for some entertainment. We took a cab right into Cockburntown. It's a very quaint town with lots of photography and shopping opportunities. There is not a lot to do besides enjoy the outdoors in Grand Turk. Margaritaville has a huge pool with a swim up bar and the Flowrider. The beaches in Grand Turk are beautiful. To the right of the ship is a little more wild - surf is rougher, beach is rockier. To the left of the ship - the beach is smooth and sandy with gentle surf. Just a short walk down the beach is Jack's Shack which is a must :-)
We loved San Juan. As both of us are avid photographers - we have decided to go back here for an extended visit. Old San Juan was very picturesque. The forts are a must see for anyone that loves history. There is so much to see and do that it can't possibly be accomplished in a short trip.
We love St. Maarten. It is probably one of our favorite ports. The guavaberry pina colada is to die for. We each brought home a bottle of guavaberry rum. This trip - we took a cab ride over to Maho Beach. It was amazing. Loved seeing, hearing and feeling the planes come in. Then we went back to Phillipsburg and enjoyed some shopping.
As we'd done an excursion on St Thomas previously. . .this time we decided to explore on our own. My favorite part of the day was the trip to Paradise Point. The tram ride up and back was scary for me as I'm afraid of heights. . .but it was well worth it. The view is amazing. And the bushwhackers were pretty darn good too. Got some great photos of an iguana who just posed for us too lol.
