With a beautiful stretch of pristine white sand, calm turquoise waters and a relaxed atmosphere, it’s no wonder that Long Bay Beach is such a popular spot to invest in property. Turks and Caicos is currently experiencing a very strong real estate market, and Long Bay Beach real estate in particular is highly sought after. Whether you’re looking to purchase a finished beachfront villa or home or buy a piece of land and build your dream home, there are plenty of real estate opportunities in the Long Bay Beach area.
Turks and Caicos Real Estate
Turks and Caicos consists of 40 islands, of which eight are inhabited. These include Providenciales, Salt Cay, Grand Turk, North Caicos, South Caicos, East Caicos, West Caicos and Middle Caicos. The island of Providenciales is the most developed island in Turks and Caicos and this is where you’ll find the vast majority of real estate opportunities. That being said, the lesser developed islands also have vacant plots of land available as well as residential properties.

Buying Real Estate in Turks and Caicos
Turks and Caicos is a British Overseas Territory that does not place restrictions on foreigners owning property. Individuals can purchase vacant plots of land as well as finished villas, single-family homes, condominiums, townhouses, duplexes and commercial properties. However, foreign corporations and trusts cannot own property in Turks and Caicos.
Buying a Beachfront Home on Long Bay Beach
Long Bay Beach is the ideal area to buy a beachfront home because it has not been as intensively developed as other areas on Providenciales such as Grace Bay. Therefore, you can still find many oceanfront properties and plots of land. Moreover, Long Bay Beach is the perfect locale for a family home or vacation property because it features a beautiful three-mile stretch of white sand, calm shallow waters and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities such as kiteboarding, kayaking and snorkelling.
Building a Home in Turks and Caicos
If you’re planning on building a home in Turks and Caicos, there are a few steps you will need to take. First you will need to acquire planning permission and a building permit. Once you have those, you can begin working with an architect and project manager to construct your home or villa. When the project is completed you will need to have your home inspected and obtain an Occupancy Certificate before you can connect the utilities and move in.
How Much Does a Luxury Beachfront Home Cost in Turks and Caicos?
The price of property in Turks and Caicos varies depending on a number of factors including the location, size of the land, and previous developments. Like anywhere in the world, beachfront property is more expensive than inland property. Real estate on Providenciales is typically more expensive than real estate on the other islands. However, no matter which island you decide to build on, you will have to pay taxes and fees including a stamp duty to the government that ranges from 0% (for properties under $25,000) to 10%. In addition, real estate agent fees range from 6% to 10%.

Keeping the Entire Family Entertained in Turks and Caicos
One of the great things about Turks and Caicos is that there are activities the whole family can do together. Whether you have young children or teenagers, you can find fun things to do that will keep kids entertained for hours on end and give you some quality time together.
Horseback riding along the beach is one of the quintessential Turks and Caicos activities. Companies like Provo Ponies can set the whole family up with friendly ponies for horseback rides. Rides take place along the white sand of Long Bay Beach and even through the water. The tours include safety equipment and guides.
The calm waters surrounding Providenciales are teeming with marine life, which makes them perfect for snorkeling. Bight Reef and Smith’s Reef are popular with families because you can access them directly from the beach. Both reefs have an abundance of sea creatures including sea turtles, eagle rays, parrotfish, and seahorses.
Boat Trips to Remote Islands
A boat trip is a fun day out for the entire family. As well as a great way to see more of Turks and Caicos. Big Blue Unlimited and Island Vibes both offer family-friendly boat charters. Trips include exploring deserted beaches, snorkeling, food and drinks. You can also customize your trip with a beach BBQ or your preferred water sports.
Eco tours are unique excursions that involve kayaking through mangrove forests to see interesting wildlife and pristine nature. Kids can learn about the geography of the islands. As well as see interesting animals above and below the water like iguanas, nurse sharks, and seabirds.
Keeping Kids Entertained at a Private Villa
Your private villa also offers plenty of activities for little ones. In fact, Triton Luxury Villa is perfectly set up for families. The villa is equipt with toys for young children, as well as a crib and highchair for an infant. Two bedrooms on the lower level are ideal for families with small children. We can also rent bouncy castles and outdoor play toys for children of various ages.
Activities at Triton range from indoor fun like art classes to outdoor play sessions on the villa’s lawn area. The villa can arrange swimming lessons with instructors in the pool. As well as tennis camps with instructors who will come to the villa for private lessons. For older kids, kayaking, kiteboarding, and paddleboarding lessons are available right on Long Bay Beach. Guests can also go on bike riding trips around the Long Bay area.
Another enjoyable aspect of staying in a private villa is that your chef will prepare meals that appeal to everyone. Triton’s resident chef has a great deal of experience cooking healthy and delicious meals that kids love. You can also plan a cookie making class with our concierge. Dining out is an option, as there are many restaurants that cater to little ones. Favorites are Turkberry for frozen yogurt and Da Conch Shack for ribs, chicken, steak and more.
