Our Opinion
The kiteboarding spot on Providenciales, this beach offers a huge expanse of clear shallow water exposed to the constant east southeast trade winds. A great place to either kite or watch the action.
5 star rating for Long Bay Beach by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
The direction sign at Long Bay Beach.

Long Bay is a three mile long beach on the southeast coast of Providenciales. The water here is clear with two to four foot depths going out thousands of feet. Due to being on the southern shallow Caicos Banks side of Providenciales, Long Bay does not get any of the larger ocean swell waves that the northern beaches do, and only at times experiences small choppy waves caused by local winds.

Kiteboarding

Long Bay Beach is by far the most popular kiteboarding spot on Providenciales.

Long Bay is by far the most popular kiteboarding location on Providenciales and dozens of kites can be in the air on windy days. Due to the northeast trade winds, Long Bay usually has onshore or side-on wind.

Accesses

Long Bay has several beach accesses, but the easiest to get to is the Long Bay North access, which is located in the Shore Club development. Here, paved parking is provided and a boardwalk leads to the beach. Although there are other accesses, they are hard to find with no parking space provided.

Dangers

The calm waters at the west end of Long Bay Beach.

The only main concern is speeding power boats and jet skis. These tend to stay farther out, but it’s best to be aware of them.

Old conch shells in the water can be an annoyance and painful when stepped on. Although the Long Bay North area has been cleaned out, shells can occasionally be found in the water off much of the rest of the three mile long beach.
