    Beautiful Views & Warm Waters
    Great couple of hours relaxing in the warmer water. Easy path to follow onto the beach. Two dogs with collars were on the beach and moving from group to the next. Both looked friendly enough, however, one of the dogs started barking at us and came running towards us. The dog slowed down when it got closer and just walked passed up and then return to its original position under a tree. Less than 5 minutes later two people showed up and were setting up when the dog did the same thing. We decided to depart immediately after that happened. I became fearful the dog would do something and the owner was no where to be found. Be careful of the dogs.

    Favorite beach!
    Still my favorite beach in Provo! Taylor Bay is quiet and secluded and not overbuilt or overcrowded. I love the beautiful shallow water! We did not encounter any dogs while on the beach so we cannot confirm or deny the existence of “Ron’s dogs.” We love the peacefulness of Taylor Bay. If you are looking for amenities stick to Grace Bay!

    Lovely beach in front of villas
    Lovely quiet beach when we went. Make a U turn when you reach the end of Ocean point drive and park next to sign tennis court path. The narrow path is where the big sign says Ocean Point Drive. It has a green chain link fence. Do not use the tennis court path as it is wrong. The water is warm and shallow. I saw the 5 dogs on the beach. As I was leaving, the white big dog bark at me. I love dogs but I don’t like dogs barking at me. Be careful not to go near them as I am not sure they are friendly. Bring your own mat/chair/umbrella and a picnic. So worth the visit.

    Loving it a little less cause of people.
    Was there Friday 11/10 still beautiful but......nothing good lasts forever.....been going there for at least 12 years. Two changes this year which were disheartening. First was a tour boat pulled up by entrance & picked up group of 8. Second jet skis from sapodilla bay pulled in & were canvassing for business. Most crowded I've ever seen it probably 80 people Also some class less people approaching 50 guzzling beers on a mission & had to fit the f-word 3 or 4 times into every sentence & not a prude I grew up in Brooklyn.

    stunning, quiet beach!
    Worth the drive to get there - it's quiet, mostly empty, no vendors, calm water, nice views. Bring your own shade, lots of water, and a garbage bag to do a beach clean. The sand was really clean but the vacant lots behind it hold the storm refuse, I filled a grocery bag in about 30 mins of picking. We ate on the Chalk Sound afterward which was stunning, made for a nice late lunch end to a lovely, quiet, perfect caribbean beach day. There are crowds at the east end, so go all the way down the sketchy, potholed road about 1/2 mile to the west end of the beach and park the car off to the side and walk the paths to the beach. easier than it looks once you park.

    Small and lovely
    We went in the morning to just chill. We walked the whole beach which was lovely. I really liked the pine trees on the beach, I had not see them before. Google directions got us right to the path to enter the beach. We were there until noon and herds of people with kids where coming in. Which makes sense because there a no waves, very kid safe.

    A MUST
    It's a little tricky to get here so ask a local. From the road - where you must part- It's a 1 minute walk. Bring your own chair or just a towel. Gorgeous- you can wade out quite a way but I wouldn't do swimming beyond your footing.

    Sun bunnies beach, if quiet atmosphere is what you are looking for
    Great quiet beach, off of Ocean Point drive, access is off the right hand side of the road, near Moonshadow residence. Park on the street. Beautiful green colour to the sea, and shallow depth, can walk our forever (no snorkeling so don't bother bringing equipment)

    Shallow beach, stay for the sunset
    This is a phenomenal beach. We got here late afternoon and parked on the street off Ocean Point Drive. The water here is really shallow so you can't really swim. You can walk out really far and still be only up to your knees. My kids really liked it (I did too.) We stayed to watch the sunset on the beach. It was really pretty, even though it was a pretty mellow sunset that day. The beach was really clean and we felt like we had way more space to spread out away from people than at other beaches we visited. We brought our own chairs and umbrella. There are no vendors on this beach, so you need to bring your own stuff.

    Perfection
    I could pitch a tent in live on this beach. You CAN snorkel here - just walk to the far end and go out around the rocky coast. Saw lots of cool fish. We initially came because Grace Bay was so rocky. Spent most of our time here just sitting in the calmest, clearest water we’ve ever seen.

In a nutshell. The beach has no signs. It is on left side on a bend in the road. Look for parked cars. Do not rely on Google Maps. The beach is surrounded by private property. Parking on the street is limited. Do not park in the restricted areas or you will get towed. You have to find an unoccupied piece of sand. Security patrols the area due to the nice houses in the area. Walk down a short path to the beach. Get greeted by a slew of locals trying to sell you drinks, chairs and umbrellas. We got stopped 4 times. The locals set up 3 small bars and play loud music of their choice. They are creating a party scene. The locals will also rent you wave runners or a couple of other water items. My family pushed past all of that and went to where a few people were at. Security came around every couple of hours making sure you are not using the private property beach house property. As for the beach, water is very shallow for couple hundred of yards. No waves. Sand is very soft. The water creates all these pits in the water like very small hills. Hard to describe. No wildlife even with googles. Great for small kids. There are no trees for shade. We met another family who told us they were here 7 years ago. Not as many houses and none of the local flavor was there. Very quiet and relaxing spot just to lay in the warm water. Not anymore. Once it became popular, the locals are capitalizing on it.

Entrance is a very short way down Ocean Point Drive. Look for the parked cars. Walkway is in between two cement garden walls. Recommend putting bug spray on your ankles for the sand flies. I got bites but wife had nothing.

Such a fun beach to visit!!! Water is very warm and shallow for a long distance. Great for little kids. We sat in the water for a few hours and just enjoyed the ocean. Must access it by the walkway from the road. It isn’t well marked but once you find it, the beach is worth it! We found starfish in the water here as well.

We were staying in a villa nearby, so had the convenience of a short walk or kayak ride to enjoy the beach. Amazingly fine, soft sand. Interesting beach front homes, which are somewhat sparse and have natural (bushes, trees) privacy between beach and home. Makes the beach seem more secluded. Beach was very calm during week, which had differing winds. Perfect place for kids to swim with exception of no facilities (unless you have access to tennis club somewhat nearby or villa).

We stayed at the Bamboo House on Taylor Bay, Turks and Caicos. There was 5 of us and it was perfect. Villa had everything we needed. A 3 min. Walk to a beautiful, quiet beach. You could walk out in the beautiful clear water for 1/2 mile. We had absolutely amazing sunsets. We had a great restaurant a 15 min. Walk away, Las Breezes. It was an great holiday and would highly recommend The Bamboo House

Previous reviews are very accurate about the beach, the water, the tranquility and the dogs! Taylor Bay is incredible!
Unfortunately, the dogs were running around and aggressively targeting various people making their way along the shore. We heard and saw them barking and lunging, forcing some to run into the water to get around them. I found that standing ground and yelling aggressively at them stopped them in their tracks for a bit so that I could make my way past. The owner, apparently named Ron, is identified on a sign taped to the wall that warns about the dogs.
We met others who loved the beach but wouldn't return because of the dogs. We too never went back to Taylor Bay during our stay and it's truly unfortunate that an irresponsible dog owner is allowed to have such an influence on others' enjoyment of such a beautiful area.

Taylor Bay Beach is a lovely crescent of a beach in Chalk Sound. We could walk there from our home rental, and enjoyed the lovely sand and warm water. One word of caution during busy tourist times: there is not a lot of parking on the street with public access to the beach, and we saw a car that was suffered some damage due to a collision in the overcrowded few spots that are available.

We love taking our adult children with their young children, the water is warm and shallow (knee high for a couple hundred feet out). The beach sand can be thin with rock underneath making it hard to set up beach umbrella. Beautiful homes surround it. Some really elegant vacation rentals.

We rented a villa on Chalk Sound. Several days were very windy and it was great to be able to walk over to Taylor Bay Beach, it is on the opposite side of the island and was sheltered from the wind. Great place to watch the sunset.
