“Great beaches with free access”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

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!

“Lots to see in this protected reef”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

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

“Thank you for creating such a wonderful park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

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.

“Great snorkeling off Coral Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

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 vacation at.

“Go because it has the best beach on Providenciales……….”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

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 swimming. No jet skies allowed so it is a very quiet beach. Clean water with great visibility. If there is a storm you will get some waves , choppy water, and seaweed. Hope for calm waters and you will be impressed and will know why people keep coming to one of the top ten beaches in the world. I have been to almost every island and this is my pick. Search no longer!
