Five Cays Beach is a 5000-foot stretch of clean sand and water located on the south coast of Five Cays, one of the three original settlements on Providenciales. For a long distance out, the water depth is quite shallow (only a few feet deep). There is no good snorkeling in the vicinity.
The beach does not usually have large waves, but it is exposed to the regular southeast trade winds and can be choppy at times. Since it is located in the village of Five Cays, privacy can be an issue at times. The popular Bugaloo’s Restaurant is located at the beach’s southwest end.
