Default Gran Turk

Is it worth it to pay for an excursion to take you to Governers beach in Grand Turk?

If it's a beautiful beach with ammenities, I would say do it. The beach where the ship docks is certainly not an enticing one, but, it gets the job done

There is a large pool inside to use as well, with a Margarittaville too.

I can't answer on the Beach thing but I can say don't waste your time going into town....what a dump and a waste of money. We went and got off the bus stood there with our mouths open and in less than 5 mins jumped on the bus going back...waste of 10.00 dollars. And to boot the taxi was something from the junk yard, can't be any safety inspections done on them.
