|About these ratings|
Vacationers are almost always pleased with Grace Bay in Provo. One writes into Fodor's: "After 18 years of going to the islands, we have finally found our 'home'. The beach is stunning, the location for walking to restaurants excellent, very good golf course close by. … Another plus was the abundance of beach chairs and umbrellas, enough for everyone."
Meanwhile, a TripAdvisor user opines, "You will not find water like this anywhere else. If you are a beach bum, then this is your dream."
Located in an eastern crook of Providenciales, Grace Bay has 12 miles of soft ashen sand and open crystalline water to placate sunbathers. There's little shade, so come early in the morning to get your choice of umbrellas. Some of the island's most well-liked restaurants are sheltered along Grace's shore, as are the most popular hotels of the island.
You can ask your concierge about renting watersports equipment or arranging a day sail, if you're staying in a Grace Bay hotel; you can also solicit one of the tour operators that leave from this area. Grace Bay is a public beach that's open all hours of the day, any day of the week.
