need help first time cruiser
 
My husband and I have decided to take our 6 year old on a cruise in March. We will be stopping in Nassau, Grand Turk, and Amber Cove. In Nassau, I figured we would do an excursion just to keep it simple. On the other two ports, are there beaches around that we can just walk to? The main purpose is for us to be able to relax on the beaches during our days at port. Can someone give me sone advice? I have a 6 year old and do not want to drag him around everywhere. We would really just like to find a beach quickly and get onto it to relax for the day.

Also, my husband and I do drink but don't think we will be drinking much. Maybe 3-4 drinks a day. Is it worth it to get the drink package?

Sounds like Grand Turk is exactly what you're looking for - there's a free beach right next to the port. Here's what it was like before the hurricanes, not sure of it's current condition
