Beaches

During your stay at Fleur de Lys Villa, you will have access to several breathtaking beaches. While ALL beaches in Provo are public, there are some that are less public than others. And we point out the best of the best for you, right here:
 

Grace Bay Beach is the beach that is closest to Fleur de Lys Villa, and it is also known as one of the Top 3 most beautiful beaches in the world, with its white sand and clear turquoise water. Grace Bay Beach has many (“public”) access points, and one of the more secluded (and “private”) access points is located within a short, 2-5 minute walk from your Villa’s front gate. Other access points that you may use include those that are near or at the various resorts. We suggest another little-known Grace Bay Beach access point, just to the East of The Sands Resort, as another part of Grace Bay Beach that is not to be missed.

 

Sapodilla Bay Beach is the southernmost beach, and you’ll need a vehicle to get there. Head towards the Airport, but then turn off Leeward Highway onto South Dock Road and head towards Chalk Sound Drive (a right turn) near the Police Station. It’s hard to find, but it’s a gem of a beach to “get your sun on” in solitude. Sapodilla is a quarter mile long of white sand beach with gin clear shallow water, which makes this beach a true favorite gathering spot, as it has no waves, making it perfect for small children and a yacht anchorage.

 

Long Bay Beach is home to some of the newest (and most expensive!) construction taking place on Provo. Magnificent new beachfront mega-mansions are sprouting up every day on this previously undeveloped side of the Island. With its shallow waters, and crisp breezes Long Bay Beach is more secluded than Grace Bay, but shares the same calm water and beautiful bright white sand as its sister beach to the north. This southeastern beach is also 3 miles long and it is accessible by several (somewhat hidden) paths from the Long Bay Hills Road. Beautiful and isolated, with cooling eastern breezes bringing treasures in from as far away as South America, Long Bay Beach is also one of the most sought after Kite Boarding beaches in the entire world.

 

Leeward Beach is on the far, northern end of Providenciales and has access to Mangrove Cay and Little Water Cay, famous for its endangered rock iguana and beautiful wildlife.

 

Pelican Point Beach is a quiet, beautiful area that’s perfect for swimming and spotting unique conchs.

 

Five Cays Beach has beautiful, luscious scenery perfect for photographs or a little rest and relaxation.

 

Taylor Bay is very kid friendly due to its shallow, warm water.

 

The Bight Beach is one of the best beaches for snorkeling, especially at Turtle Cove, the Bight Reef, and Smith’s Reef, and has access to the children’s park. This is one of the more heavily accessed of the public beaches on the Island. But be sure to not miss the weekly “Fish Fry” for one of your Island “Bucket List” to do’s while you are visiting us here in Provo!

 

Attractions

The Turks and Caicos Islands are home to a variety of unique family friendly attractions:
