The amazing thing about this beach is that you can walk out for a mile, and the water does not go above your knee. Great place to let kids loose in the water. We walked out to... read more

The amazing thing about this beach is that you can walk out for a mile, and the water does not go above your knee. Great place to let kids loose in the water. We walked out to Pelican Cay. - a rocky island - which took about 15 minutes, mainly because of treading through the water. The beach area was... More

Such a wonderful place!!! The beach is secluded and we saw exactly ZERO other people while here. It is a piece of heaven! I will say however....there was alot of trash on the main land area. This is due to the island having their crabfest here. They are not cleaning up the grounds afterward and it is disappointing to see... More

....because we were there alone and it was eerie at first but there is nothing to be afraid of! Bring your bug spray. On the beach you don't have mosquitos (if there's a breeze) but by the trees you do. The huts aren't worth using nor is the porta potty's....they're pretty dirty. This beach is not as hard to find...

My second time visiting Bambarra Beach. The first time was three years ago. Visited here early July with a family of six. The beach is as beautiful as any. The only part that took away from this was that there was a fairly large amount of garbage up away from the shore. It was clear that a recent event had... More

A little hard to find despite the fact that there is just really one main road through most of Middle Caicos, a sparsely populated key with just 168 people at last census in 2012. A small easily missed sign "Bambarra Beach," below a larger sign "Bambarra Bay," lead you down a dirt road that itself is forked without any direction... More

We visited this beach but did not get impressed due to the poor maintenance of the area. A lot of mosquitos makes this place not an enjoyable place for beach lovers like us.

We drove straight here from the ferry and had a little trouble finding it at first. Make sure to watch out for small sign off the highway- turn right and then turn right again and stay towards the right- look for the line of tiki huts that are in bad shape. There is a lot of trash out here so... More

Perfectly clear, turquoise water that seems to go on for ever! During low tide, you can walk to Pelican Cay and snorkel on the back side.

If you like Grace Bay, but wish it were even quieter - then this is the place to be. Pure white sand and a transparent turquoise sea. No need for Photoshop here! The beach is fringed by Caicos pines providing shade if the sun gets too hot. Midweek, you may actually find yourself the only person around. Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful!

My wife and I went here on a Saturday morning. We had the beach to ourselves! It's kind of eerie at first being the only ones there...but don't be nervous! Just relax and enjoy the view. It's a little hard to find but well worth it. Bring your snorkel gear and walk out to Pelican Cay. It's about a 15... More
