If this sounds like you, booking accommodations within walking distance of a good beach can add a little something extra to your vacation.
If all you can think about is the beach, Parrot Cay Resort & Shambhala Retreat is the right spot for you. This property is situated on the shore, so vacationers can spend all day every day under the sun if that is what they want to do. The thought of being able to lay a blanket out while avoiding hoards of tourists all over the place makes a difference in your beach going experience. This beach offers that kind of benefit, since it is not located near the more populated parts of Turks and Caicos.
Naturally, since Parrot Cay Resort & Shambhala Retreat was built directly on Sandy Point Beach, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions here.
