Best of Long Bay Beach
Why swim when you can surf and why surf when you can kitesurf? If you’re up some on-the-water action, Long Beach Bay is the place to do it, a beautiful beach that’s perfect for kitesurfing. Long Bay Beach is generally uncrowded and quiet while still being fairly close to Grace Bay and less than ten minutes from our Turks and Caicos resort. A long, expansive beach, visitors can also wade out well over a hundred yards from the shore, which only serves to make it more attractive for kitesurfers. If you’re ready to give one of the most popular watersports on the island a try, we definitely recommend getting an instructor for your first time out rather than just renting the gear. Lessons can be had from Turks and Caicos Kiteboarding, KiteProvo, and Kitesurf Turks and Caicos Islands, to name a few. Lessons are typically one to three hours long and once the basics have been mastered, you can hit the water on your own and start tearing up the waves. If you’ve really got the skills, you can even take part in the Windvibes Kiteboarding Tournament, an annual Providenciales event since 2007 that includes not just kitesurfing but also kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, log-throwing competitions and tug-of-war, making it a wild and fun event for kids and adults alike. This year, WindVibes will be held on July 10th, so visitors have some time to brush up on their kitesurfing at Long Bay Beach before the tournament! After you’ve spent the day surfing up and down the shoreline, relax in the luxurious comfort of your suite at the Seven Stars Resort.
