Turks and Caicos, Bambarra Beach - Middle Caicos

Turks and Caicos’ Bambarra Beach has been crowned the second best beach in the Caribbean, according to USA Today’s ‘10Best Reader’s Choice Awards’.

The beach on Middle Caicos was chosen by USA Today’s readers because of its “calm, clear, and warm water” alongside “plenty of room to spread out and relax”.

In a press relese, Minister of Tourism, Josephine Connolly, said she was delighted that the strategic marketing and promotion of ‘Experience Turks and Caicos’ had led to Bambarra Beach’s recognition. 

She stated: “We have been promoting the Turks and Caicos Islands as a multi-island destination, encouraging visitors to explore beyond Providenciales. The recognition of Bambarra Beach is the first of many more accolades to come for our multi-island destination as we continue to market and promote awareness for the diversity and natural beauty of our multi-island destination and enhance our product across the Archipelago for visitors to explore and create unforgettable experiences.”

Ms Connolly added: “This award underscores the charm of Bambarra Beach and complements the charm of Grace Bay Beach’s accolades which include Trip Advisor Travelers Choice Awards Best of the Best Beaches 2023.”
