The Turtle Tail area of Providenciales has several small beaches nestled between the rocky bluffs and hills on the island’s southern coast. These small beaches are generally beautiful, but they are not as suitable for swimming as the more popular north coast beaches of Grace Bay Beach, The Bight Beach, and Leeward Beach.
These beaches range in length from about 50 feet (15 meters) to a few hundred feet. Many of the tiny beaches here can only be reached by villas along the coast.
The water in this area is quite shallow, only a few feet deep for a long distance. Five small cays are found off the beach at the largest of the Turtle Tail beaches, and it is possible to wade out to the closer islands, but this is not recommended due to safety concerns.
