Amanyara excels for those seeking seclusion, tranquility, and high levels of service. The property is located on the remote western coast of Providenciales, and is accessed via a long unpaved road. Amanyara may not be best for those that want to spend time at Grace Bay or the many other beaches on Providenciales, or those that may want to sample the many popular restaurants across the island.
5-star rating for Amanyara by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands

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 snorkeling 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 snorkeling and 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 Karst features.
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 (15 m) to almost 7,000 feet (2100 m) 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 amounts of 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 snorkeling.
