Our kids are too young to spend money on excrusions, they just want to make sandcastles on the beach ... so our excursions are pretty-much pre-determined.
For St. Thomas, I've been to both Trunk Bay and Magen's Bay before and I'm not sure which we'll go to. On our last cruise, we heard about a young boy (cruise passenger) being shot being caugth in gang wars. I've yet to google and verify any details. If you have any info to share, please do. Is either beach in a particularly safer area? For Magen's Bay, we can do the Beach Getaway, which woudl run about $86.00. Would anyone recommend taking a taxi as opposed to the cruise excursion? There are four of us - 2 adults and 2 kids under 4. In Cozumel, earlier this year, we took a cab ride which was safe and cost effective. I'm just not sure about doing this on St. Thomas.
For Grand Turk - pretty much same question. I've never been before. Is a nice beach within a quick cab ride?
