Grace Bay Beach at The Sands

As most visit the Turks and Caicos for our spectacular beaches, it’s important to be on a perfect white sand beach.

The Sands ideally situated on a great stretch of beach and is bordered by undeveloped parcels, so the beach fronting the resort tends to be less crowded than what is typical at other hotels in the area.

The entirety of Grace Bay Beach is amazing, yet the coast does vary a little across its 3 miles. The Sands is located just west of Forbes Point (where Point Grace resort stands), a very slight peninsula, so the spot is often sheltered from the constant eastern trade winds, and consequently the water close to the beach is calmer than at other locations.

As is the norm for Grace Bay, and the adjacent Leeward Beach and Bight Beach, The ocean water is incredible, clear, and of course a breath taking turquoise.


The Sands is located on the western side of the main Grace Bay region, yet does offer a bit more seclusion than many of the other hotels in the area.

The shopping and dining at The Saltmills and the Regent Village are a 7-minute walk away (1800 feet/550 meters). These plazas are home to many boutiques, restaurants, and essential services.

Graceway Gourmet supermarket is a bit further away, at a 14-minute walk (.75 mile/1.1km).

Providenciales International Airport (PLS), which welcomes all international flights to the Turks and Caicos, is less than 15 minutes away by car from The Sands.
