Grace Bay Beach

Widely acclaimed as one of the most stunning natural beaches in the world, Grace Bay Beach is a haven of clean turquoise water, soft white sand, and no rocks, seaweed, or pollution. Located on the north coast of Providenciales, Grace Bay Beach is the home of several upscale beach clubs and has easy access to world-class shopping and dining.

Leeward Beach

As part of the Princess Alexandra National Park, Leeward Beach is one of the most unspoiled and beautiful stretches of sand in Providenciales. Found toward the northeast of the island, the beach is significantly less developed and is an ideal spot for spending a day in absolute peace and seclusion.

Sapodilla Bay Hill

When compared to the vibrant northern coast, the southern coast of Providenciales provides a more peaceful and romantic setting. The small sheltered cove is a locals’ favorite due to its calm, shallow water that is perfect for children and bathing.

Long Bay Beach

Located on the quieter southern coast of Providenciales, Long Bay Beach is a stunning white-sand beach that is known as a kiteboarding hotspot due to its constant east southeast trade winds. The 3-mile (4.8km) stretch of beach is also ideal for simply laying back and watching the action or heading to Long Bay Hills for scenic horseback riding.
