Grand Turk Golf Cart Rental Excursion Reviews
Another familiar port, Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos was a lot of fun. We arranged beforehand to rent a golf cart so the four of us could tool around the island at our leisure. Being a relatively small island, and having visited there before, we were easily able to navigate and find our way around. Even driving on the left-hand side of the road was much easier in a golf cart! In fact, I would recommend taking a golf cart rather than a regular tour if you’ve been to the island before, as it truly does have a good bit of charm when you view the historic spots up close and in person rather than from a bus window.
We visited the lighthouse on the northern point, the History Museum which was a kick because the lady working there was an ex-pat from the States. Also the John Glenn Friendship 7 memorial and the Grand Turk Inn were all charming. The architecture and street design reminded me a lot of some of the Florida Gulf Coastal communities that I’ve visited (accounting for a difference in income levels).
The Grand Turk cruise port was built specifically by and for Carnival, and includes a giant Margaritaville restaurant that features a pool and swim-up bar as well as large outdoor dining area. We relaxed, grabbed a couple Cheeseburgers in Paradise and swam in the beach area near the ship before returning onboard.
