Grace Bay in the Turks and Caicos Islands
Grace Bay is perhaps the most famous beach in the Caribbean.
As Conde Nast Traveler says, it is ‘Frequently voted the best beach in the world; it is an absolute peach: perfect white sands, crystal-clear water and not a rock or bit of seaweed to be seen. It’s kept this pristine by a barrier reef a mile out, which ensures that the waters are beautifully calm, making it perfect for family swimming.’
In 2022, TripAdvisor users voted Grace Bay as the ‘Number 1 Beach in the World.’
Located on the main island of Providenciales, the 3-mile-long beach is only a 20-minute drive from the international airport that has direct flights from London, New York, Toronto, and many other US and Canadian cities.
