#1 - Beaches Turks & Caicos

Voted the World's #1 Best Beach by TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice awards in 2018, Beaches Turks and Caicos sits on the pristine shores of Grace Bay. Here idyllic blue waters meet the softest sand you'll ever have a chance to sink your feet into.

Beaches Turks & Caicos offers panoramic beach views from three of it's four villages and exclusivity as one of the premier resorts in Providenciales. It offers an endless supply of restaurants, recreation and amenities along with some of the BEST diving you’ll do anywhere in the Caribbean.

Why is Beaches Turks and Caicos our #1 pick for the Best Beaches Resort?

  • This is a recurring theme and a testament to Beaches Resorts as a whole but it’s the people who work at Beaches Turks and Caicos that make this such an exceptional destination.

  • The food is excellent and there are twenty one restaurants to choose from including our favorite “The Jerk Shack”. The culinary team is attentive to strict dietary needs and will be more than happy to create a meal plan for any Vegan’s, vegetarians or anyone with allergies.

  • For those with young children, breakfast with the Sesame Street characters and even a night time tuck in with their favorite character is a must.

  • There are four villages, three of which are beachfront (Caribbean Village, Italian Village & Key West Village). For the best Oceanviews, consider a stay in the Italian or Caribbean. Want to know the best locations? Chat with us below and we'll help you find the perfect location!

  • The Red Lane Spa at Beaches Turks and Caicos is one of the best and we always recommend the Lavender Scalp massage.

  • There are 10 pools at the resort. The main pool at the Italian Village hosts a swim up bar and it’s where most of the activity takes place. The playmakers are a blast and will keep you and the family entertained but if you’re looking something more relaxed there are secluded retreats around the resort. Tip: Quiet pools are in the Key West Village

  • The beach is beautiful and ocean water is the perfect shade of blue. If you’re into snorkeling you can take short 10 min walk to Bights Reef which is a natural marine reserve where you can see everything from turtles to rays.

  • There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pools and on the beach, you'll find the Caribbean Village side has more chairs than the Italian or Key West Village.

  • The Water Sports Team is amazing and there is so much to do. Including, sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boards, etc. If you want a lesson, they’re more than happy to teach you how to use them.

  • The dive team is exceptional and the diving in Turks and Caicos is amongst the best. Known for their wall dives you can go from being in 45 feet of water to a wall with a 500ft drop.

  • For teens, Beaches Turks & Caicos offers a teen night club, a massive Xbox lounge and even a DJ Scratch academy where they can learn how to DJ.

Additional considerations and tips about Beaches Turks and Caicos:

  • The resort transfer takes approximately 15 min from the airport.

Those in the Luxury category, there is a culinary desk in the main lobby of the Caribbean Village who’ll assist you with this.

  • If you're a fan of Indian Food, make sure to try the pop up restaurant located in the Italian Village.

  • How far away is Beaches Turks and Caicos from the airport? It’s about 15 - 20 minutes.

  • Due to it's impressive offerings, inclusions and popularity. This tends to the priciest of the three currently open Beaches resorts. There are ways to make your trip more affordable though.
