Half Moon Bay

Water Cay, TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands, TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands

If you’re willing to go the extra mile for the perfect beach, point your kayak toward Half Moon Bay. The beach is actually a sandbar that stretches between Water Cay and Little Water Cay, creating a Cast Away–like setting between two uninhabited islands, just a short paddle from the east end of Providenciales. The north side of the sandbar sits along the ocean, while the south side fronts a shallow lagoon protected by another spit of sand. If you’re comfortable in a kayak, you can easily reach Half Moon Bay on your own, but it’s also a popular stop for local day-boat charters.
