Most BeautifulÂ Beaches
The following list provides a brief description of several of the most beautiful beaches. Make sure to visit as many as you can on your nextÂ vacation in Turks and Caicos.
Grace Bay Beach
This twelve mile beach on the northeast coast of the island will thrill guests with its soft white sands and sparkling waters. Grace Bay Beach, a popular spot, is known as one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, however, its length makes it easy to find a secluded spot and lounge along the shore.
The southwest coast of Grand Turk is home to Governor’s Beach, with its white, powder-soft sands and clear blue Caribbean waters, which make this beach one of the nicest on the island. Vacationers who are searching for a pretty beach away from the crowds should consider going off the beaten path to Governor’s Beach.
Long Bay Beach
Long Bay Beach is a large stretch of coastline on the south shore, with beautiful white sands and hardly any visitors. The water is warmer on this side and the waves are shallow and calm, providing excellent swimming opportunities.
Sapodilla Bay Beach
Sapodilla Bay Beach, on the west coast of Providenciales (Provo), is known to the locals as the children’s beach because of its heavily protected waters. The shore is filled with soft white sands leading into the crystal clear, calm, and shallow waters that are perfect for the whole family.
Malcolm’s Road Beach
For the adventurous traveler, Malcolm’s Road Beach on the northwest coast of the island is worth the journey. Miles of off-roading on a rocky trail leads to a beautiful beach with powder white sands and excellent snorkeling. The tiki huts that line the shore are the only trace of mankind and shield loungers from the sun. This beach is only accessible with a four-wheel-drive vehicle but its seclusion and serenity are worth the trip.
Big Ambergris Cay
Named after the waxy substance that comes off the migrating humpback whales, Big Ambergris Cay is an island in the southeast area of the Turks & Caicos chain. Because of its relatively new popularity as a tourist area the island has a kind of wild beauty that has been virtually untouched. The seclusion of the island’s gorgeous beaches draws an elite crowd of tourists and homeowners.
Big Sand Cay
Big Sand Cay in the Turks & Caicos Islands is an unihabited paradise whose beautiful shores are usually only visited by boaters exploring the Caribbean seas. The extreme seclusion and crystal clear waters allow for exceptional snorkeling and the discovery of all forms of underwater life, including the migrating humpback whales. Discover the untamed wild at Big Sand Cay.
Salt Cay, the island time forgot, is the southern most Turks & Caicos island that is mostly uninhabited and has the most beautiful unspoilt beaches. This tiny island is about six to eight miles around and has a rich history in the production of salt. It is possible to tour the remains of this industry or just sit along the shores and enjoy the secluded waters teeming with colorful fish.
