“Only if You're Kite Boarding or Wind Surfing”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

By far the best waves on the island and it was deserted (only one other person) the day we were there. That said the beach itself was really narrow and the sand had seaweed all over it and the water had a bunch of seaweed in it too. If you are just going to relax at the beach not Kite Board or Wind Surf then don't waste your time. Go to Grace Bay or Taylor Bay.

“Long Bay Beach is worth the trek”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We loved Long Bay Beach! We stopped here for a day, getting away from Grace Bay, and had a fantastic time. It's a windier place than Grace Bay. The seas are choppier - really a lot of fun - not quite waves but not calm either - but at unbelievably relaxing temperatures - it's just fun bobbing up and down. I'd love to learn to kiteboard, because it really looked amazing - maybe next time. Only thing is that signage/parking is not what it needs to be - it can be a little difficult to find the public access - I wish the TCI did a better job of this in general - but at Long Bay Beach in particular - it can be a little challenging to figure out where you are supposed to enter. It's worth the effort, though, you will be rewarded by its beauty!

“Windy, narrow beach, loved by kite surfers”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

A new luxury property (starting prices $1.4m) is being built at one end of this long bay, which directly faces the trade winds off the Atlantic. So if you want to see some amazing kite surfers, and enjoy a permanent cool and often strong breeze with waves to match, take a drive, but don't expect to do too much swimming, kite surfers rule the roost here.

“Beautiful and Quiet”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We rented a villa on Long Bay Beach for two weeks. It is a beautiful beach with no people on it ever! It is very quiet and secluded although it is very close to Grace Bay (less than 10 min. drive). We stayed here to get away from the crowds and we rarely say another soul for the two weeks we were there. The only caveat is it's beach is rather slim and crushed conch shells are buried in the sand. Two of us got some pretty nasty cuts on our feet but the rest of us didn't get any. I wore my water shoes when walking along the beach though. It is on the windy side of Provo so the water is not exactly calm but it's not very rough either. Kite boarders are a frequent site here. It's more of a rustic beach with lots of pine needles and rocks but beautiful nonetheless. There are no hotels, restaurants, etc. out there so unless you are staying in a villa, you will need a car to get there.

“Fantastic beach for kiteboarding”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I took lessons from Kite Provo at Long Bay Beach and it was amazing. The water is waist deep for about 4 miles out and super warm. The wind is constant and makes for great kiteboarding conditions. I can't wait to go back!
