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.

Positioned in Sandy Point, in the same vicinity as Parrot Cay, this beach is on the North East edge of Parrot Cay. You might want to drop by regardless of whether you are staying particularly close by. Sandy Point Beach stands out from other beaches because it's one of the best spots for escaping the hustle of Turks and Caicos' urban areas. Many of the other beaches you'll come across in Turks and Caicos offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but are usually more cramped because they border some of the area's most popular resorts.

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.

Amenities and Ambiance

Sandy Point is crescent shaped with ivory sand and crystalline blue waters. The sand can be a bit rocky, but is great for strolling and birdwatching.

There are public restrooms at this beach——something you'll appreciate if you bring the kids along. Additionally, you'll have access to lounge chairs at this location. You will find the water here is clear and good for snorkeling, so bring your equipment if you want to see what lies beneath the surface.
