Coral Gardens Reef, Providenciales

#5 of 44 in Parks in Turks and Caicos
Reef · Nature / Park
Head out to explore Coral Gardens Reef, a biologically rich coral reef popular with snorkelers. Located in a national park, the reef stretches out 32.5 m (350 ft) from the coast and can be easily accessed from the eastern end of the main beach. The reef supports a large array of small fish and a few heftier sea creatures, such as turtles, rays, and barracudas. The actions of some snorkelers have forced a decline in the delicate ecosystem in recent years; make sure to leave everything where it is and don't touch the coral or fish.

  • The more dense portions of the reef were protected (thank goodness) but you could snorkel around them and over less dense ones. Really beautiful fish and turtles to see.  more »
  • Excellent location on Grace Bay. Somewhere Cafe very good. Reef for snorkelling in front of resort. All staff are professional and very helpful.
  • A great "family friendly" reef; there's plenty of wildlife to see in a relatively small area, making it very easy for children to do without wearing themselves out. It's in a great location to where once you're done with the reef, you can still enjoy a prestine beach.
