Amenities and Ambiance

Sapodilla Bay Beach, on the west coast of Providenciales (Provo), is known to the locals as the children's beach because of its heavily protected waters. The shore is filled with soft white sands leading into the crystal clear, calm, and shallow waters that are perfect for the whole family.

The concession stand on-site could come in handy, even if you plan to have lunch elsewhere. If available, you could also order lunch from one of the local vendors who set up shop at the beach.
