Sandy Point Beach

Located on North Caicos, Sandy Point Beach was once nearly deserted, only known by boaters and locals who reveled in its isolation. Recently, however, several resort developments have brought the beauty that is Sandy Point to many a vacationer's attention.

Set in Sandy Point, in the same vicinity as Parrot Cay, this beach is on the North East coast of Parrot Cay. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by. Sandy Point Beach may be one of the few active beaches in Turks and Caicos that's usually not over-crowded. If you're not interested in Turks and Caicos' completely quiet and hidden beaches, but don't want to be inundated with noisy crowds, this beach offers a nice middle ground.

How to Access The Beach
Sandy Point Beach begins where Whitby Highway dead ends. Simply follow the road to the west and find parking as soon as you hit sand.
