Heaven on earth!

Our cottage we rented was right on the beach of this National park. Smith's Reef was a great place to snorkel and the sands were as soft as powder.

I just love staring out over the ocean and seeing this beautiful sea park. You can gaze where the surf hits the coral reef that lines the island. Very relaxing. If you do nothing else on island, just take some time to take your mind off your worldy problems and give thank you are lucky enough to enjoy the beauty... More

We walked several days of our week long stay along one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the world that forms a part of Grace Bay and Princess Alexandra National Park. The dazzling shades of blue colours of the water and the powdery soft sand beach were breathtaking.

We went snorkeling at Smith's Reef and had a lot better luck this time than we did a year ago. If you are down by the boat canal area, you have to swim way out to see anything. We went the opposite direction (to the right if you are facing the ocean) and found fantastic fish in front of the... More

This is all part of Great Bay. You can go to the main area of the National Park. There are facilities and parking. As the park has many resorts and some homes on the beach, there are numerous access ways onto the park as all the beaches are public. Very clean.

Imagine walking into the water and then swimming in an aquarium. That's what the snorkeling is like here. You'll need to bring your own gear or get some from your resort, but if you like to snorkel, this is the best way to do it on Providenciales without hiring a tour! We have been out on boats, but I have... More

Walked down here to take a glimpse of the corral and fish swimming around. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of fish in the area, but amazed on how close and shallow it was! My 7 year old daughter isn't the best swimmer, but she was able to enjoy the scenery as well making it one of her favorite... More

We rode our bikes here from our resort. We were able to lock our bikes and walk down to the beach. It is so peaceful. A must see while you are here
