Grace Bay rightfully ranks as one of the world's most alluring beaches, with an idyllic tropical setting playing its part. It is at the western end of the Turks and Caicos Archipelago, on the north shore of the island of Providenciales, known less formally as Provo. Cuba lies to the west and Miami to the northwest. At Grace Bay, the placid turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean gently caress dazzling white sands, forming a narrow strip of pristine beach stretching for more than twelve miles. What more could the avid beach enthusiast desire, once they sample what is on offer here?
While comparisons may prove inconclusive, it is no coincidence that this award-winning beach packages itself as one of the finest anywhere on the planet. Grace Bay offers unrivalled outdoor excellence, together with all the refinements that a grand destination ought to boast. It has fabulous shops, great restaurants and 5-star accommodation offerings right on the doorstep.
Popular activities include leisurely kayaking or snorkelling, assuming, of course, that you prefer to engage in more energetic pursuits in preference to sun, sea and beach worship. Stiffer challenges await those who enjoy Hobie catting and parasailing. Most arrive here simply to relax under a colourful beach umbrella - with all those miles of sand to choose from, you won't have any difficulty finding your own exclusive zone.
Aside from the beach, one of the great attractions at Grace Bay is the Princess Alexandra Marine Park. This important marine reserve serves to protect coral reefs between two islets close to Grace Bay. Special visitors include bottlenose dolphins, eagle rays, sharks and whales. While sun, sea and a stunning beach will likely remain high on your list, the main thing in abundance at Grace Bay is natural beauty. Arguably, the ultimate tropical beach experience, this one will stay forever in your memory.
