Providenciales, Turks & Caicos
The Shore Club
Oceanfront getaway on a pristine beach
What it is
Spanking-new white palaces overlooking one of the world’s top beaches.
What it isn't
In the thick of things. Long Bay Beach is much more secluded than resort-lined Grace Bay.
What we think
Even on beach-blessed Providenciales, Long Bay Beach is a gem among gems: a long stretch of pristine white sand, waveless turquoise water, and very little development. The Shore Club is the first hotel on the stretch, its two white waterfront towers looking out to small sailboats and kitesurfers hovering over the crystalline waters. Indeed, this is a favorite spot for kitesurfing, and the resort lends out everything from paddleboards to hobie cats to snorkel gear. The rooms have a white and cream color scheme with splashes of blue to create a stylishly beachy look; all have private balconies. The smallest, a junior suite, starts at 640 square feet; families can combine up to three (there’s also a kids’ club). Wellness is a focus here—beyond the watersports, there’s a mid-sized spa, yoga pavilion and lap pool, plus tennis courts.
You're here because
You want a more secluded alternative than busy Grace Bay, and you’ve always wanted to give kiteboarding a try.
Fresh out the pool, you meander over to Sea Grapes bar and eye a seductive row of fresh coconuts. But you opt for something sexier: Nothing quite like a frozen mojito to accompany the wavelets lapping the beach two steps away.
