Taylor Bay Beach is a small but gorgeous beach on the south side of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. Some people have difficulty trying to find Taylor Bay, but it’s actually pretty simple.
Quite the opposite of the north shore’s world renowned Grace Bay Beach, Taylor Bay Beach is small, shallow, calm and as warm as a bathtub. It’s absolutely perfect for families with small children, or people who are content to sit and/or float for hours (really, if I had a tube that day, I’d probably still be there!).
There are some private residences nearby, but that’s it. Don’t expect lifeguards, chaises, fruity drinks, washrooms or even shade, unless you tote it in yourself. There’s also no security, so just be mindful that while the area is quiet and isolated, and you’ll probably have no issues, you don’t want to be leaving your valuables around.
Now, how to get there… near the end of South Dock Road, you will turn right onto Chalk Sound Drive. After about 1.3 km, take a left onto Ocean Point Drive. After about 300m, you will notice a very small parking area on your right with a trail leading into the brush – don’t worry the path isn’t too long, only about 100m or so around a corner. I’ve read in the past there were signs, but I didn’t see any the day we were there (Oct ’15). Directly across the street from the parking area (so on your left) there is a quite modern/contemporary villa being built… this might help 😉
Our morning at Taylor Bay Beach was one of my absolute favourite times during our vacations in TCI. If you are looking to get off the beaten path and explore the natural beauty of Provo, you will love this spot.
