This is off the path. You will fill like you are at Chalksound. Great for beginners as I felt safe with the water levels. Great for families. Not as crowded as the other beaches. Pack a lunch and drinks you will be here all day.

Entering Princess Alexandra National Park gives you a glance at the Beauty that encompasses Providenciales. Nothing short of stunning.! Take a walk, swim, snorkel, or just sit back and take in the view.

This tops all beaches I have seen. It is clean, walkable and lots of chairs to sit on. The sand is almost white.

This is a beach region you've got to experience with your own eyes. Period! We snorkeled at Bight Reef and we saw turtles and tons of fish.

There is a central area that can be snorkeled around with views of various tropical fish and coral. We always bring an underwater camera for video and photos.

There is no bank. The protected area iis accessed from the beach. Any fishing near this area is illegal. To fish in Provo you basically need to do it from a boat.
