• Princess Alexandra National Park, a marine preserve, includes the reef and encompasses two of the small cays off the northeastern tip of the island; the park’s waters are home to bottlenose dolphins.

    Taylor Bay is found off the south coast of Providenciales, near Chalk Sound and west of Sapodilla Bay. This scenic beach isn't extensive at only about 2000 feet (600 meter) long. Sheltered by the small Ocean Point peninsula from the regular southeast trade winds, the water here is very shallow, calm and clear and is consequently an excellent beach choice when visiting with small children. This beach can be very interesting during very low tides as due to the very shallow water, large patches of sand with intricate patterns are exposed at times. Quite a few rental vacation villas are located in this area, but the beaches rarely sees any crowds. There’s no decent snorkelling nearby. The low sea cliffs that continue on both ends of the beach where the sand stops do shelter a few small fish and soft corals, but you’ll won’t find much more than that. Found nearby is the equally nice Sapodilla Bay, along with the Sapodilla Bay Hill Rock Carvings and Chalk Sound National Park.

    Found off the south coast of Providenciales near Chalk Sound, Sapodilla Bay is a 900 foot (275 meter) long stretch of sheltered beach. The water here is very shallow, calm and clear, and is an excellent choice for families and those visiting with small children.

    This beach is a 10 mile (16km) drive from the central tourism region and resorts of Grace Bay.

    Sapodilla Bay offers an interesting setting. There are luxury vacation villason the beach and surrounding coastal cliffs, private yachts anchor in the bay, and the nearby Chalk Sound area is beautiful..

    The ocean water temp in the Turks and Caicos is always great, yet the sheltered coast of Sapodilla Bay and Taylor Bay tend to have even warmer water due to localised heating by the sun.

    The world-famous Grace Bay Beach of course sees far more guests, however, Sapodilla Bay can feel a little more crowded on busy days due to the limited extent of the beach.

    Malcolm’s Road is a beautiful and secluded beach that’s found off the remote west coast of Providenciales. This beach is about 1.3 miles long (2 km). The exclusive Amanyara resort is found at the southern end of the coast, and the northern side eventually becomes low limestone ironshore cliffs as it leads towards Northwest Point.

    One unique aspect of Malcolm’s Road is that it’s located close to the wall, which is the sheer drop-off on the edge of the underwater Caicos Islands plateau. The feature surrounds much of the Caicos Islands group and offers some of the best scuba diving in the region, yet nearly all other beaches on Providenciales are quite a distance the wall, and are protected by the barrier reef as well.
