This area offers very interesting Karst limestone cave and sinkhole formations along with a nice beach at low tide, but large amounts of trash and the associated crime risk suggest that the area should be avoided.

Sand, sea and cliffs at Cooper Jack Bay Beach.
This page is for Cooper Jack Bay Beach. For the residential region see Cooper Jack.
Found off the south coast of central Providenciales is Cooper Jack Bay Beach. At about a 1000 feet (300 meters) long, this beach is at the bottom of a small limestone sea cliff and can be quite small during very high tides. There’s no snorkeling here, but the beach can be ok for swimming during calm conditions.
Sinkhole with a natural bridge at Cooper Jack Bay Beach.
The cliffs above the beach are an excellent location for showing off the small caves and sinkholes formed by the Karst erosion process. Previously, a small sort of nature park existed here, with paths around some of the formations and stone carvings of animals and pirates.
Litter at Cooper Jack Bay Beach, Providenciales.
Unfortunately, over the years the area has become a literal dump as lowlifes have completely saturated the location with alcohol bottles and litter, and even throw full garbage bags along the road nearby. Due to this reason, we recommend avoiding this (otherwise nice) beach.
The only access to Cooper Jack Bay Beach is found near the end of Seaview Drive, off of Cooper Jack Bay Road. A footpath leads for about a 100 feet (30 meters) through the vegetation to the top of the small sea cliff with the beach below.
As the trash suggests, this beach probably has a greater crime risk than many of the other beaches on the island. See Safety and Crime for more information.
