The third largest coral reef system in the world surrounds Providenciales, protecting the beaches that line the coast from rough water surges. This makes for calm surf that is great for young families and snorkelers. Additionally, the shores are kept clean and even beaches backed by large resorts and near residential communities are public.
There are a large selection of beaches to enjoy on the island. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for those who enjoy the underwater scene. Click on each beach name for more detail concerning that particular location.
If you are looking for a snorkeling spot, a place where that's an option is Davy Bight Beach. A long dirt road snakes its way right to the sandy beach, and visitors can park just steps from the shore.
Another good choice for snorkeling fans is Turtle Cove Beach. Turtle Cove Beach takes the form of an inverted crescent, wrapping around the land area that in turn wraps around Sellars Pond. The beach's sands are fine in nature and white in color, while the water that washes ashore is a deep dark blue.
Five Cays Bay: Five Cays is one of three main centers of population on the island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos island chain. Within this area is Five Cays Bay, where visitors can find occasion to get away from their busy days sightseeing and relax along the shore.
