Grace Bay Beach
Grace Bay Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are not enough words or awards that can be given that will do justice to the beauty of Grace Bay. From the stunning clear blue waters to the powdery white sugar sand, Grace Bay provides that perfect beach destination.
Grace Bay is three miles long and protected one mile out from the shore by the third largest coral reef in the world. This reef helps keep Grace Bay free from waves, debris, seaweed, pollution, rocks, or anything else that might cloud the waters.
Grace Bay is within Princess Alexandra National Park. There are few power boats on Grace Bay and the legal speed limit for boats is 15 mph due to being part of the national park. Jet skis are not allowed in Grace Bay. This helps keep Grace Bay quiet, calm, and relaxing.
Grace Bay is the main tourist area of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. Most of the islands resorts are located along this beautiful stretch of beach. The resorts are fairly spread out so the beach never seems crowded. This is a public beach (as are all beaches in Turks and Caicos) so you can stay anywhere on the island and visit Grace Bay.
Grace Bay does not have reefs close enough to shore for snorkeling. The closest snorkeling is on the west end of Grace Bay at The Bight Reef and Smith’s Reef.
Many of the resorts have non-motorized watersports available including small sail boats (Hobie Cats), stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, and other floating toys. You can easily take a morning walk and make it from one end of the beach to the other and see all that Grace Bay has to offer.
One visit to Grace Bay and you will understand why it stands as one of the top beach destinations in the world.
