Many people make plans to come to Providenciales just for the incredible beaches that the Caribbean is so well known for.
If you are a fan of the beach, Royal West Indies Resort has what you need. This site is located on the coast, so tourists can spend their whole trip in the sun if they want. The ability to find tranquility without hoards of tourists nearby is something to be valued. This beach provides that type of environment because it is situated away from Turks and Caicos' busier areas.
Naturally, since Royal West Indies Resort sits directly on Grace Bay Beach, relaxing at the water's edge is one of the main attractions at this property.
