The Best Pools at Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort

There are eight pools at Beaches resort in Turks and Caicos (not including hot tubs) and they're all kept immaculately clean. Some pools are better than others depending on how you like to spend your time. Here is a guide to the best pools on the resort:

Best for Swimming: French Village Pool; Infinity Pool in Key West Village

The French Village Pool is big and rectangular like an Olympic-sized swimming pool. It draws a crowd in the afternoon, but there is plenty of room for swimming. There is a shallow kiddie pool alongside the main pool making it a good choice for parents, too.

The Infinity Pool in the Key West Village is a much smaller rectangular pool that's no bigger than an inground pool that you'd find at someone's house. It's usually empty in the mornings, making it a good choice for someone who wants to swim short lengths.
