Covering 193 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean, Turks and Caicos Islands have the third largest coral reef system in the world, making it a premier diving and snorkeling destination. The long barrier reef protecting the islands is home to a colorful wildlife and magnificent coral formation. The Turks and Caicos host some of the best dive sites one can find, making these islands among the world’s top 10 diving spots.
There are numerous dive companies on island each catering to different experience levels. Once again, the Villa Manager can guide you in the right direction and make all your bookings for you. There are also numerous boat excursions to be had that don’t involve diving but still get you out there to experience the sun and spray. Snorkeling is a great way to see some of the spectacular reefs here. Also beach hopping and sunset cruises are always a must.
Some of the best snorkeling is directly off the beach in front of the Villa, where a string of coral heads waits your viewing. The Villa maintains an inventory of masks, fins and snorkels of varying sizes for both adults and children. When booking, please inform the Villa Manager of the number and sizes that you might need, so she can assure that they are in stock when you arrive.
