Grace Bay Turks and Caicos Review
Beach Personality: Upscale Beachy Perfection
Grace Bay Beach is a 12-mile stretch of pristine white sand running along the northeast coast of Providenciales. Although Providenciales is the Turks and Caicos’ primary center for tourism and Grace Bay Beach is its most well-known beach, it’s easy to find a secluded spot due to the beach’s length.
With its plethora of water sports, convenient amenities, and beautiful setting, it’s no wonder that numerous sources have called Grace Bay Beach one of the world’s best beaches. According to Lydia Fisher, everything about Grace Bay Beach is utter perfection: the gorgeous water, sparkling blue sky, clean white sand, and lack of crowds. She goes so far as to call it, “paradise on earth.” Given all this, how can any beach lover resist a trip to the Turks and Caicos’ Grace Bay Beach?

Most people get to Providenciales by air. Multiple US and international airlines provide service into Providenciales International Airport (PLS) including American Airlines, US Airways, Delta Airlines, Air Canada, British Airways, Bahamas Air, and Air Turks and Caicos.
From the airport, taxi service, rental cars, and rental scooters are available. Remember, in Turks and Caicos drivers drive on the left side of the road!
