The third largest coral reef system in the world surrounds Providenciales, protecting the beaches that line the coast from rough water surges.  This makes for calm surf that is great for young families and snorkelers.  Additionally, the shores are kept clean and even beaches backed by large resorts and near residential communities are public.
