Grace Bay Beach is easily one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. (I travel a lot, and I’ve been to many places!) The water color is absolutely gorgeous. When it washes up on the beach, it’s crystal clear. I can go out to my knees, and still see my colored toe polish perfectly! A little past that, is a beautiful turquoise, then farther out is a deep blue.

The sand is very powdery and soft, not too hot. You can easily walk barefoot anywhere on the beach. Since there is a reef out, Grace Bay Beach is protected from harsh ocean waves. The water is extremely calm. So much so, that you can lay on your back in the sand, and feel the tide wash up on you, without even breaking over your face!

There are resorts up and down the beach, but not completely lining it. I’d say the beach is the most populated in the early afternoon, thanks to the after-lunch crowd. If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, I’d advise going in the early morning (when most vacationers are catching up on their sleep in their hotel rooms!) Most people at the beach respect that people are here to relax, so even when it’s considered ‘crowded’, it’s not too bad.

Hi little fish!
