Often, travelers plan to come to Parrot Cay just to experience the breath-taking beaches that the Caribbean is known for.
If all you can think about is the beach, Parrot Cay Resort & Shambhala Retreat has what you need. This property is located on the shore, so visitors can spend as much time as they like in the sun if that is what they want to do. Being able to kick back while avoiding hoards of people nearby is something to be valued. This beach is known for that kind of benefit, since it's located outside of Turks and Caicos' more crowded areas.
Needless to say, since Parrot Cay Resort & Shambhala Retreat is located directly on Sandy Point Beach, spending time at the shore is one of the main attractions here. Located on North Caicos, Sandy Point Beach was once nearly deserted, only known by boaters and locals who reveled in its isolation.
