Beaches on Providenciales

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.

Beach Choices In The Area

There are a large selection of beaches to visit on the island. Snorkeling is an option at some of these beaches, if some of the people in your group enjoy the underwater scene. Just click on the beach names for a detailed guide to that specific beach.

Grace Bay Beach

A nice beach where snorkeling is popular is Davy Bight Beach. Not far from Northwest Point Resort on the island of Providenciales is Davy Bight Beach. Because the resort overlooks the beach, it is often guests that are found spending their time lounging along the shores, however, the property is open to the public and all are welcome.

Another top pick for those who enjoy snorkeling 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.

Malcolm's Road Beach: The journey to the beach is a new experience especially for guests seeking an adventure while Malcom's Road Beach itself offers a perfect Caribbean setting and ultimate seclusion. Snorkeling is great here but remember to bring equipment for there are no facilities at the beach.
