Question walk from Governers beach to town??

Were going to be in G/T next monday and was wondering if we took a cab from the port to governers beach for a few hours if we could walk from there into Cockburn for lunch, at I think it's called Waterside or something like that, would it be a far walk? and if anyone has ate or drank there is it a good place to kick back and enjoy atmosphere and view for a bit? do they have conch also? thanks so much

My Sister In Law has been diving in Grand Turk before and she told me that is too far away (and hot) to walk to town, but you could take a taxi or rent a scooter outside the Cruise Center.

You probably meant "The Water's Edge", which is a restaurant that is currently closed but she recommended me "Turk's Head" as the best restaurant in town, although the view is better from "Ospreach Restaurant" or something like that.

I will be there next week, so I will be able to tell you more.

By the way, Do you know how much are the helicopter rides?
I have done it in Vegas and Grand Cayman and it's awesome. I will try to see some whales, since we will be there for the Humpback Whales Season and there is a good chance to see them from the air.

Enjoy your trip!
