Hollywood Beach, North Caicos.

Hollywood Beach

Our Opinion
Along with Whitby Beach and the nearby Pumpkin Bluff Beach, this is one of the nicest beaches on North Caicos. Sea grass does grow in patches not far off the beach, but overall this beautiful area is generally sheltered, has clean sand and is always secluded.
4 star rating for Hollywood Beach by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
The beautiful beach and ocean at Hollywood Beach, North Caicos.

Found between Three Marys Cays and Pumpkin Bluff Beach on North Caicos, Hollywood Beach typically offers some of the calmer waters on the island.

There are patches of seaweed growing at some spots in this area, but the beach tends to be cleanest on its west end. Casuarina trees line much of this coastline and provide ample shade.

As is the case with all beaches on North Caicos and Middle Caicos, and in stark contrast to its Florida namesake, Hollywood Beach is quite quiet and secluded, and you’ll likely have the entire beach to yourself.

What’s on the Barrier Reef?

A strange shape can be seen jutting above the barrier reef off of Hollywood Beach. This feature is the bow of the River Arc, the sole remaining piece of a freighter that mysteriously grounded itself on the reef in 1985. This vessel was likely used by international drug traffickers, who abandoned it.

Other Sights and Attractions in the Area

The path to Hollywood Beach, North Caicos.

When visiting North and Middle Caicos on a day trip, we advise planning the day’s route so as to fit in as many scenic sights as possible.

Depending on your interests, consider visiting Three Marys Cays, the birdwatching sites of Pumpkin Bluff Pond and Mud Hole Pond, and the small yet exquisite Pumpkin Bluff Beach, which is nestled between two coastal limestone ironshore bluffs.

Getting to Hollywood Beach

Access to Hollywood Beach can be a little confusing due to none of the many roads in the area having names. We recommend approaching from the Whitby side of the beach. If you continue west down Whitby Highway (northwest of the T junction with Kew Highway) the road becomes unpaved and you’ll pass a round-about and the abandoned Prospect of Whitby Hotel. A short distance down this road is Pumpkin Bluff Pond and accesses can be found nearby in a largely undeveloped residential lot project.
