Found between Cockburn Town Beach and Governor’s Beach, this section of coastline is typically a bit quieter than the other popular Grand Turk Beaches while still being easily accessible. There are rocky spots, but the beach here is quite nice.
4 star rating for English Point by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
Casuarina trees line parts of English Point Beach.
English Point Beach is a .8 mile (1.3km) beach on the west side of Grand Turk. A bit rockier than the adjacent
Governor's Beach and
Cockburn Town Beach, this coast is however sheltered and generally secluded.
Casuarina trees line the shore in places and offer shade. Several
vacation rental villas are found at the northern end of this beach.
There’s very little decent snorkeling here. A rock shelf is found off the beach in many areas, but is largely devoid of live coral. The northern end of this beach has the best reef in the area, but much of it is further than 200 feet (64 meters) off the beach.
Getting to English Point Beach
English Point Beach isn’t located far from the
Grand Turk Cruise Center. However, due to the typically intense Turks and Caicos sun and the lack of sidewalks, it isn’t really feasible to walk the distance.
If you don’t have a
rental vehicle (we generally recommend that visitors rent a car or golf cart for their stay), it’s possible to
take a taxi. Rates should be $4 per person each way.
