Grace Bay Attractions

Before the island of Providenciales became a popular tourist destination in its own right, and long before Grace Bay turned into the luxury resort strip that we see today, there was one attraction in the area that stood out among them all: the Bight.  Today it remains an important sight to see, and tourists are adding more and more to their list of must see spots in Grace Bay each time they visit.


Grace Bay Beach

There are a large selection of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, for those who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on the name of each beach for a detailed guide to that beach.

A beach scene where snorkeling is popular is Grace Bay Beach. This twelve mile beach on the northeast coast of the island will thrill guests with its soft white sands and sparkling waters. Grace Bay Beach, a popular spot, is known as one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, however, its length makes it easy to find a secluded spot and lounge along the shore.

Another place that beach-goers can consider is Long Bay Beach. The main attractions on Providenciales are the beaches with their stunning sands and waters that are perfect for playing in, and Long Bay Beach offers both. Its seclusion, however, is one of the main attractions.

The Bight Beach: There is a bit to see at the Bight Beach. The beach is more natural than Grace Bay, and beach fauna will be easy to spot for anyone exploring the area.

Fortunately, you'll be able to find a full range of beaches in and around the area. To navigate to our detailed page about beaches, follow this link.

Although most travelers have heard about the beautiful coastline, that isn't the only way to experience the area's natural beauty. The one example is The Hole. It is found in Bringamosa, 1.5 mi. South of central Grace Bay. The Hole is just that -- a hole in the ground on the island of Providenciales from which visitors are lowered down by rope to swim in the waters of Long Bay. This can be dangerous, so only the adventurous need apply.
