The swank resort area of Grace Bay came to be such a sought after destination originally due to the popularity of Grace Bay Beach.  It is, in fact, one of the best loved beaches in the island chain, with its fine, soft sand and crystalline waters.  Lining the shores these days are a number of resorts which have their own beach chairs and watersports services in the sand.
