The wind season here in the Turks and Caicos is the longest in the Caribbean and unlike the rest of the Caribbean, the wind speeds increase in the summer months extending our season from Winter through the late summer months!
Long Bay Beach on the island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos boasts one of the longest and best wind conditions you can find anywhere
Here is why!

- Super stable wind – Smooth winds because they are unobstructed from the ocean. Very little gusts aid in your progression.
The Winds and the Weather
- Onshore to Side Onshore Winds – Long Bay’s kite beach wind conditions are ideal with a side onshore winds. This means you will never worry about getting blown out to sea! Combine that with the massive shallow water Caicos Banks and you can easily walk in waist deep waters at low tide for 1 mile from the shore making it ideal for your safety.
