The Bight is a quiet community in central Providenciales that’s found between Grace Bay and Turtle Cove. The beachfront side of this region is home to luxury resorts and villas, and the interior supports several low density and traditional residential neighborhoods.
The Bight Beach is an exquisite and calm coastline, with a wide white sand beach and lush seagrass beds further out in the ocean. Several small yet beautiful snorkeling reefs are found in the area, including the popular Bight Reef (also known as Coral Gardens) and many smaller reef systems. Directly to the west of the Bight Beach is the Smith's Reef coastline. The Bight Beach is a popular coast in that it combines incredible beach and water with interesting snorkeling, unlike many of the other top beaches in the country, which don’t quite have the equivalent reefs near shore.
The Bight is a convenient place to stay at. There are many restaurants in the area, and Grace Bay, the expansive Graceway IGA supermarket, and Turtle Cove is only a few minutes away by car.
