As we continue sharing the USA Today article on the Best Beaches in the Caribbean today we are featuring Turks and Caicos. Let’s jump right in to the warm sand and turquoise ocean fun!
Turks and Caicos Islands
Grace Bay Beach lives up to the hype. Twelve miles of beach perfection on the eastern crook of Providenciales, or Provo as it is known, Grace Bay is the Louboutin of beaches and one of the top beaches in the world, according to TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2017. Spectacular from end to end with soft ashen sand and wide-open Tiffany blue box waves, the busiest beach on the island is also the backyard of a slew of resorts. Part of the Princess Alexandra National Park, nature-friendly water sports like sailing and snorkeling are popular, while water skis and jet skis are strictly off-limits. To see the most dramatic underwater life, snorkeling is best at Smith’s Reef and Bight Reef.
Popular with kite-boarders and blissfully devoid of everyone else, Long Bay Beach on Provo’s southeast coast is 3 miles of delicious solitude. Four-foot water depths going out thousands of feet are ideal for languid swims and the beach is so wide open, you may not see another soul. What you will see is the blue sea meeting the blue sky. Stop at the stunning Shore Club, which so far is the only resort even close to the beach (the easiest access is the north entrance next to the resort where a boardwalk leads to the sand). On the northwest shoreline, wild and windswept Malcolm’s is the quietest beach on the island, accessible only with a four-wheel-drive but well worth the trip for the superb snorkeling.
