Just off the port on the beach. I arrived with a ship full of metal heads on January 30, 2013 and we were the only ship docked at this time. Since the long haired, bearded and tattooed people took over the bar and the beach they even started playing metal music for us.
Place was expensive though with 7 USD per beer, if you walked another 4 minutes up the beach you found the "Local Village & Bar" with beers for 4 USD each and free WiFi. Another 1 minute up the beach you had a little yellow shack that sold their beach for 3 USD a pop.
Typical tourist place with not a big beer selection, they had one of the Turks beers at this time though. Worth checking out some of the other bars as well, but this is the closest to the port for sure.
Very nice by the white beach and the perfect water, sun and heat, some shade available.

Had a Turkís Head Light for $5. A big party place but a bit pricey. Did not eat. I think pool is part of Grand Turk even though next to this place.

This is the main party place of the Grand Turk Island. Itís really huge and has a giant pool. Fun place.

Typical of most Carribean beach bars - Incredible location with sparkling blue water, white sand beaches, giant pool but incredibly crappy beer selection - only have the typical macros you can get anywhere - Corona (obviously), Heineken, Red Stripe and A-B/Miller products. You can get Guinness Foreign Stout though but NO Turkís Head beer (when I was there - hopefully that may change someday). The next place just north on the beach (I didnít find out the name of it and itís not online yet) said they occasionally have the local beer but were out on the day I was there (dammit!). As for the main town, only had one liquor store (on the main street - just north of stop 1 on The Guana shuttle bus, but they also did not have any Turkís head beer but did have plenty of Guinness Foreign Stout and Dominican Presidente beer. The main grocery store on the island, Ceeís, had no beer at all (despite what one website says). So if you go to Grand Turk in search of their beer, try the bar next to Margaritaville and keep your fingers crossed. Hopefully the availability will improve now there is a cruise boat dock.
