For those who simply seeking a quiet, uncrowded beach, don’t fret. Most of the kiteboarding on Long Bay Beach is contained in a small area of the beach. Don’t forget, Long Bay Beach is three miles long. Walk a little ways to the right, and chances are you won’t find another soul around. And who doesn’t love having a beautiful, pristine beach all to themselves?
The water depth in Long Bay makes it the perfect place for families and children in particular. Depths range from two to four feet. And its location along the southern shore protects the beach from the larger ocean swells often found on the north shore. The consistent tradewinds also provide a reprieve from the year-round warm temperatures of the Turks and Caicos. Pack a picnic and bring your family to a quiet, secluded spot on the beach—or take the kids to watch the kiteboarders in action as they glide along the ocean surface, their colorful kites flying high above.
Long Bay Beach is known throughout the Caribbean as one of the top kiteboarding destinations. Its shallow waters and consistent tradewinds create the perfect conditions for both seasoned kiteboarders and newbies. And you don’t have to be a kiteboarder to enjoy the sport. It can be just as fun to sit back and relax on the beach as a spectator as you watch the kiteboarders do their thing on the water—and the Turks and Caicos is home to some talented athletes.
