When you think about a vacation in the Caribbean, you may think all the region is the same. But the experience on each island is unique. But what makes Grace Bay Bach different from the other beaches?
A World Top Beach
Grace Bay Beach always is fighting for the first position between the World Top Beaches. This 13-mile-long beach is described often as the hallmark of the Turks and Caicos Islands because of the amazing natural features and the luxury amenities.
Located in British overseas territory, the Turks and Caicos, the beach is part of a national park open to the public and a very desirable beachfront real estate. You can walk around the whole length of the beach and find several restaurants and bars.

But above all, snorkeling is the best activity you can do here. The recommended site to practice snorkeling is at Bright and Smith Reef, two lovely places to enjoy the whole underwater world.
If you want to explore more of nature, Iguana Island, inhabited by up to 3000 iguanas, is a must to visit.

Tips for Grace Bay Beach
- If you go snorkeling, buoys are surrounding the protected reef. Passing that you’ll find turtles swimming.
- Take into consideration that Providenciales has a small airport, so it may take time to pass to get through customs. But there’s a Fastrack service for $65 a person to skip the line.
- If you want to save some money on accommodation, you can look for a hotel on Grace Bay Road.
- Sometimes it may become windy and will restrict you to practice water sports, so please check the weather reports before.
