Best of the Best Beaches

Caribbean

Golden sands, rugged coastlines, clear blue waters—this year’s winning beaches are traveller faves for everything from lazy beach days to underwater adventures.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


Grace Bay Beach is a scenic spot with powdery-white sand and bright blue waters. Relax on the shore, swim in the calm sea, try some water sports—you can really do it all. Its barrier reef creates perfect conditions for diving and snorkelling (you might even spot some turtles!). At the end of the day, go for a walk along the beach and catch the breathtaking sunset.

    Thank you for a top notch trip. The service was exceptional. Our concierge was Austin/Patrick who aimed to please. We would also like to give a shout out to Ugeye from the beach. Freddy and Gregory from The bar and Amie and Beatrice from the grill. They all did a fabulous job. Thank you for a great trip!

    Beautiful water colors like milky blue, different than in Maldives. One of the most beautiful beaches we ever saw! This beach has waves and sometimes strong ones, and we and our 6 years old loved it! When the wind is very strong just rent a car and switch to Sapodilla Beach, there was always calm and no waves but the beach looks different than Grace Bay, different colors!

    The beach is absolutely stunning! With its soft, powdery sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters, it's like stepping into a postcard. The gentle sound of waves crashing against the shore creates a soothing ambiance, perfect for relaxation. The panoramic views stretch for miles, offering a sense of serenity and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether you're lounging under a palm tree or taking a leisurely stroll along the shoreline, every moment spent on this beautiful beach feels like a dream come true. It's a paradise worth visiting time and time again

    We chose to stay in the Turtle Cove area to avoid the large throngs of people that converge on the Grace Bay hotels and, subsequently, the gorgeous 3 mile expanse of Grace Bay Beach. We are happy to share that the west end of Grace Bay Beach (Bight Beach that is close to Turtle Cove) with its white sand beaches and turquoise waters was peaceful, quiet, and was virtually secluded. We spent hours enjoying the sun, sand, sounds, smells, and sight of the bay. We treasure our memories of beautiful Grace Bay Beach!

Kleine Knip is the perfect place to kick back and relax all day—with its emerald waters and powdery shores, it's easy to do—but there's so much more to see. Snorkellers will want to explore the reef and check out the marine life, and thrill-seekers can get their adrenaline pumping by jumping off the low cliffs. There aren't too many amenities available, but there are a few food and drink options and even umbrella rentals if you need a break from the sun.
