Fodor's Expert Review Long Bay Hills Beach
On the southeastern end of the island, visitors will find this a lovely stretch to stroll. It’s not much of a place to swim, as the water is shallow and shells litter the floor. This is where you can pick up a conch shell to take home, as it is not part of the country’s park system. It's ungroomed, so you’ll find many along the shore. Long Bay is also where some will have their dreams of riding horseback fulfilled. The guides with Provo Ponies will also let them swim. Kitesurfers have also made this their mecca. On any one Saturday, there may be up to a hundred kiters enjoying the shallower waters and warm trade winds to advance their skills. If you’re not a participant, come out and enjoy the show. You can watch world-class boarders daily. It might spark some interest so that you find yourself checking in with one of the several instructors giving lessons out on Long Bay. Amenities: parking (free). Best for: kitesurfing; walking; windsurfing.
