Long Bay Beach

The main attractions on Providenciales are the beaches with their stunning sands and waters that are perfect for playing in, and Long Bay Beach offers both. Its seclusion, however, is one of the main attractions.

Positioned in Bringamosa, Long Bay Beach is on the East coast of Providenciales. You might want whether or not you're staying very close. Peace and quiet is what you'll find at the majority of Turks and Caicos' beaches, but Long Bay Beach is a little different. You'll still find it has a calm, serene mood, but you can visit without sacrificing a fun and social atmosphere.

How to Access The Beach
You can find Long Bay Beach just one street south of Man of War Road West. A paved, but bumpy road, leads right to the sand.

Amenities and Ambiance

Long Bay Beach is a large stretch of coastline on the south shore, with beautiful white sands and hardly any visitors. The water is warmer on this side and the waves are shallow and calm, providing excellent swimming opportunities.

Lots of visitors here find that the on-site snack bar is just fine for lunch. On some days, it may be possible to try local specialties from one of the local vendors who set up shop at the beach.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. With most people staying on Grace Bay, Long Bay Beach stays relatively unpopulated, while the length of the shore makes it easy to find a secluded setting.
