Cotton Bay Beach, Grand Turk (Turks & Caicos Islands)

Just returned from an eastern Caribbean cruise. The first stop was in Grand Turk. Part of the Island chain known as The Turks and Caicos Islands.

After snorkeling, we were taken to Cotton Bay Beach. We waded in to the beach, the first thing i saw when we got to the beach wasn't a seashell but a piece of sea glass.

With every wave there was more. In about 20 minutes I found 57 pieces.

Most were different shades off green and brown. Some frosted on both sides and others on one side with smooth edges.

I found 8 pieces that look to be dark frosted gray and about the same number off black frosted pieces all with smooth edges.

3 pieces of amber, 1 piece each of red,blue and orange. Only a couple of pieces have points to them but are not sharp.

I also found 1 top of a bottle that had all smooth edges and was partially frosted.

I would rate this beach as an EXCELLENT place to find sea glass..

Governor's Beach Sea Glass Finds
by: Mary Lou Powers

Was on a recent cruise to Grand Turk and went to Governor's Beach.

It was deserted and amazing.

I got so much sea glass along with a sea sponge, sand dollars and so much more.

You can walk to the beach from the cruise terminal.

I could download a picture of my prizes, but not sure where to put that!
