Long Bay Beach
This beach on the Southeastern coast of Providenciales is one of the island’s best-kept secrets—but not for long. For years, the only people who ventured over came for kite surfing and other water sports. The area was deemed undevelopable because of the number of conch shells that had piled up on the sand. But hotelier Stan Hartling fell in love with the area, figuring out a way to clear the shells. He’s added coconut trees along the beach and opened a hotel, the Shore Club. It will certainly bring many more people to this area, though the beach is still a relative haven compared to Grace Bay. The waters are fantastic for all types of sports, and the adventurous should head out to the shipwreck two miles off the shore—it happened in 2008 and has become an attraction for the adventurous.
