4 star rating for Turtle Tail Beach by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
The beautiful Turtle Tail Beach.
The Turtle Tail area offers several small beaches between the rocky bluffs and hills off the south side of Providenciales. These small beaches are generally quite scenic, but are not as quite as good for swimming as the more popular north coast beaches of Grace Bay Beach, The Bight Beach and Leeward Beach.
These beaches range in size from about fifty feet up to few hundred feet long. Many of the tiny beaches here are really only accessible from villas along the coast.
The water in this area is quite shallow, often only a few feet deep going out a long distance. At the largest of the Turtle Tail beaches, five small cays are found off the beach and it’s possible to wade out to the closer islands.
Unfortunately, there are no official designated public beach accesses to any of the Turtle Tail beaches at this time, but it’s not difficult to get to many of the beaches from the road.
Turtle Tail is a residential area with many rental vacation villas. No restaurants or stores are located in the region.
One of the small and beautiful beaches at Turtle Tail, Providenciales.
The largest of the Turtle Tail beaches is the easiest to access, and is found by following Venetian Road from Leeward Highway for three and three quarters miles to a large cleared space on the right. This area is between the two main stretches of beach and also offers an excellent spot for launching kayaks.
The beach and ocean at the Turtle Tail beaches is generally safe. The biggest danger to swimmers would hidden conch shells and rocks in the water and on the beach. These obstacles can cause lacerations if stepped on.
