Get to know Leeward

Leeward Beach is essentially the eastern extension of Grace Bay Beach, with the same beautiful waters and soft, white sand. But since Leeward Beach is surrounded with less development and is not as well known as Grace Bay, you’ll enjoy the same marvelous beach but without the crowds. The beach-adjacent residential area, known simply as Leeward, has an interior canal system, so there are quite a few waterfront homes here, in addition to those facing the ocean. Houses in the interior region of Leeward are part of one of the earliest subdivisions in Turks and Caicos, accounting for its paved roads, underground utilities, and mature landscaping. This is also one of the few neighborhoods that has an HOA. Many of the villas here are inside a gated community, with staffed guard booths at both the west and east entrance.

Living in Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos, an archipelago of 40 islands in the Atlantic Ocean, is one of the most beautiful and tranquil places on Earth. For a long time, Turks and Caicos had almost no tourism, depending mainly on the salt industry to sustain the economy. In the 1960s, a few American developers came, building an airstrip, marina, and hotel on Providenciales, but the number of tourists remained small. But when Club Med opened a resort at Grace Bay in the 1980s, Turks and Caicos began its boom as an international tourist destination. Today, only nine of the islands are inhabited, with most residences, hotels, and restaurants located on Providenciales, informally nicknamed Provo. Cruise ships generally dock at the island of Grand Turk, home to the capital of Cockburn Town. The other seven inhabited islands and cays are wilder and significantly less populated, serving as home to exclusive and secluded resorts and villas.
