All beaches are open to the public. They're tidy, clean and a great example of T&C Caribbean islands

Over three days we made sure to access the beach at several different points (The Alexander, Le Vele, Seven Stars). Great that there was parking and it was free. We walked along the shore for about 4 miles each day. We stopped and set up our portabrella in between hotel areas (around Coral Gardens & Somewhere cafe) to enjoy the... More

Beautiful fish, clear water! Turtles, parrot fish, sergeant majors, angels fish . . . even a lemon shark one day. Then after snorkeling, get some guacamole and chips at Somewhere at the Coral Gardens. Yummy!

Playground with great views of the beach. Also has a bathroom, well maintained and creates a great atmosphere of imaginary play.

Wonderful stretch of sand and water along the twelve-mile Grace Bay. Love the fact that there are so many points of public access with FREE parking in between all of the expensive resorts!

Nothing to dislike. Follow the rules and stay just outside the ropes and you will still see amazing variety of fish. This includes a reef shark or too and barracudas

We dove in the Price Alexandra National Park and it was a very good experience. Unlike may national marine parks there were no set fees but there was an opportunity to donate at the dive shop. These parks keep the place pristine for others to enjoy and I appreciate the hard work.

This national park, especially the protected reef at Coral Gardens is a fantastic place to see a large variety of underwater life. Bring the family and kids. It's safe, easy to navigate, and very diverse. Stay for a meal at "Somewhere" restaurant, or even better book a room at Coral Gardens. It's a very nice place to spend your Providenciales... More

Grace Bay and The Bight are the two beaches that front Princess Alexandra National Park. The reef does many things. It stops the ocean waves so at times the water entry is as placid as a lake. Sharks like to be on the other side of the reef so you being on the other side by the beach= very safe... More
