The World List of Natural Sites of Tourist Attraction
Found off the northeast coast of Providenciales, this pristine beach is the hallmark of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The recipient of many designations, Grace Bay currently holds the position of World Travel Awards’ World’s Leading Beach Destination, and Trip Advisor’s 2nd best beach in the world.
The entire beach is consistently excellent, with clean water, white sand and no rocks, seaweed or pollution. The barrier reef found a mile (1.6km) out protects Grace Bay from the ocean swells of the Atlantic.
Nearly all of the main resorts on Providenciales are found on this coast, and much of the watersport activity occurs in the area.
Many sources cite Grace Bay as being seven or twelve miles long, but in reality it’s only a little over three miles long (4.8km).
