Head to the nature reserve of Little Water Cay, otherwise known as 'Iguana Island'. The cay accomodates some of the few remaining rock iguanas that used to inhabit most of the islands in the Turks and Caicos. Access the cay by tour boat or kayak from the Leeward Marina on Providenciales. Wooden boardwalks map out the island and due to the endangered nature of the iguanas it's a requirement to stay on the paths. Pristine waters surround the cay, ideal for snorkelling and observing an abundance of marine life. By using our Providenciales attractions app, you can arrange your visit to Little Water Cay and other attractions in Providenciales.

There is some great snorkelling right off the beach here
