Stretch out on fine white sands and marvel at the intense turquoise blue of the Caribbean waters on this pristine and photogenic stretch of shore.
Extending along the northeast coast of Providenciales, this fabulous strip of sandy beach is about as close to perfection as earthly beaches go. Sunbathe on the flour-soft sands and swim in the clear, clean waters.
Sibonne Beach is named for the adjacent Sibonne Beach Hotel and is part of the larger 3-mile (5-kilometer) long Grace Bay Beach, which was itself named after Grace Jane Hutchings, the wife of former Turks and Caicos commissioner, Hugh Houston Hutchings.
Stroll the length of Grace Bay Beach and pass by additional beachside resorts, some of which offer watersports activities, such as parasailing, wake boarding and banana boat riding, to non-resort guests. Lots of bars, cafés, restaurants and shops can also be found along the beach’s edge, providing diners with stunning sea views to admire while they eat.
Among the most appealing aspects of Grace Bay Beach is the total absence of rocks, seaweed and pollution. With no dangerous waves or currents, this beach is particularly well-suited for swimming, with an off-coast barrier reef providing shelter from the wilder Atlantic swells. Travel out to the reef by boat for snorkeling and diving excursions.
Sibonne Beach is part of Princess Alexandra National Park. If you are staying at Sibonne Beach Hotel, make use of the private access and simply stroll down to the sands. Alternatively, Grace Bay Beach can be accessed via several turnoffs on Grace Bay Road. Free parking is available. While the beach is open to the public, parasols and sun loungers are typically reserved for resort guests’ use only. Though there are several resorts here, the beach is usually fairly quiet and tranquil.
If you want to explore farther afield, walk east along Grace Bay Beach to reach Leeward Beach or west to access Bight Beach.
