Here’s The Secret Recipe To Having The Best Beach Day Ever
Umbrella? Check. Floaties for lounging in the sea? CHECK.
There's nothing on Earth that quite beats the combination of saltwater and sunshine with sand beneath your feet, whether you're on Grace Bay or Taylor Bay. In fact, we'd venture to say any beach day is a good day — Mother Nature makes it effortless. All you have to do is show up. But there are still a few ways you can make a regular beach day in the Turks & Caicos an extraordinary one. Here are the five essentials to having the best. beach day. ever.
Make sure you have plenty of shade
TCI is known for its outrageously gorgeous beaches, but there's one area where we're lacking: Shade. You won't find many tall trees on the shore. A sizable beach umbrella is your friend.
Ever heard about our world-famous coral reefs? We have one of the longest contiguous reefs in the world that can be reached by boat, but beachgoers can also snorkel right next to the shore on certain beaches. If you're headed to Coral Gardens on Grace Bay or Smith's Reef by Turtle Cove, be sure to bring snorkel gear to check out the impressive coral formations and ocean critters. You're bound to see an array of tropical fish, sea turtles and more.
Sure, you could just plant your bum on the sand and call it a day. But if you really want to relax, a good beach chair makes all the difference. You can sit back and lounge on Grace Bay, or head to Long Bay Beach and have a front-row seat to the kiteboarding action.
We love a good swim, but sometimes you just want to float in the water effortlessly. That's where some inflatable help comes in, whether in the form of a ring or a lounger. It's one of those things you don't realize you need until you have it — and then you wonder why you never thought to bring one to the beach before. Let's face it: A water float takes beach day to a whole new level.
Don't forget the bodyboard
There's no denying the peace and relaxation found from lounging in the sun or floating in the ocean, but when you need to spice things up a little bit, a bodyboard may be just what you need. Catch a thrill by sliding along the water's edge on your board. Repeat until you tire yourself out. Then retreat back to your lounger.
