Amanyara is a member of the Aman Resorts group, and is their only hotel in Turks and Caicos.
The Beach and Natural Setting
Aerial view of Amanyara and the spectacular Northwest Point Marine National Park.
One of the defining aspects of Amanyara as a destination is the incredible and secluded
Malcolm’s Road Beach that fronts the resort. This coast combines soft white sand, low limestone cliffs, exquisite ocean clarity, and beautiful snorkelling reefs.
The region surrounding Amanyara is a highly scenic, with coastal, tropical dry forest and wetland environments, and there’s no other development to mar the view.
The ocean fronting the area is part of the Northwest Point Marine National Park, and spectacular
diving sites can be found across the reef here.
To the south of Amanyara is the Frenchman’s Creek Nature Reserve, a complex and beautiful system of marine and tidal wetlands, fresh water ponds, and
A differing aspect from the
Grace Bay Beach area of Providenciales (where many of the island’s
resorts are found) is the proximity of the marine wall and deep water off the Caicos Islands. The Turks and Caicos Islands are situated on a
submerged plateau, and the transitions from the shallow water on top of the plateau to the great depths off it is often quite drastic. At some sites this change is a sheer wall, with the depth dropping from 50 feet (15M) to almost 7 thousand (2100M) over a short distance.
The wall is located close off the Northwest Point and Malcolm’s Road coastline, and as such these areas experience large marine life and the deep blue water not seen at the island’s other beaches.
As the deep Atlantic isn’t far off from Amanyara, it’s possible to spot pods of dolphins in the distance, and migrating humpback whales during the winter months.
Underwater visibility is also stellar, and perfect for diving and snorkelling.

Getting to Amanyara Resort
Amanyara Resort is quite a drive from the majority of resorts,
shopping, and much of the route travels the unpaved and winding road that leads to Malcolm’s Road Beach.
The resort operates a fleet of Land Rovers for guest transport, and includes complimentary airport pick up and drop off, either to the
Providenciales International Airport (PLS), or the one of the island’s
FBOs in the case of arrival by private aircraft.
Transport by the resort to other locations on Providenciales can be arranged, however it may incur extra fees.
Both of our secluded all-inclusive resorts, Amanyara and
Parrot Cay Resort, are found in remote locations. However, the journey to access Amanyara from the airport is quicker as it doesn’t require a boat trip.
Beautiful and remote, Malcolm’s Road Beach offers much to explore. Due to being close to the edge of the Caicos Islands plateau and the deeper water, this beach occasionally experiences breaking surf directly off the coast, and has a bit more of a rugged appearance than the other beaches on the island. The adventurous can find great snorkelling here.
