SIBONNE BEACH HOTEL houses a spa, restaurant and bar open to the public. Long Bay is a quieter area than Grace Bay, ideal for watching the moon rise in the evening and sun rise every morning. The three-mile Long Bay Beach is a good spot to watch kiteboard-ers on a windy day. A five minute drive from Grace Bay. Chalk Sound, Sapodilla Bay and Turtle Tail are suburbs located on the south side of the island. The peaceful Chalk Sound National Park is a stunning lagoon of shallow turquoise water lined with luxury vacation villas and pictur-esque places to relax by the water’s edge. The lagoon is ideal for stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking, canoeing and pon-toon boat excursions. Sapodilla Bay Beach benefits from warm, shallow water perfect for little ones. All three areas are approximately 20 minutes drive from Grace Bay. See our map after page 104 for accommodation locations.
