The Pristine Reefs of the Turks and Caicos Islands
An island vacation in the Turks and Caicos is not complete without e...
The Turks and Caicos Islands consist out of two island groups built on top of two separate limestone banks. The calcium rich and warm waters have created the perfect conditions for coral reefs to form, resulting in a hard and soft coral barrier reef all along the Turks and Caicos island group. Aquatic life is diverse and thriving, coral species are huge and colorful and its beaches are white, clean and extremely pretty. Vast areas of the underwater ecology are well maintained, protected, controlled and preserved. There are mooring buoys at many of the dive sites to protect the coral reefs from being damaged.
You can visit Providenciales, shortened known as Provo, which is the best developed and most touristic region in the island group. Northeast of Provo, you can visit the Princess Alexandra Marine National Park, the nature reserve Little Water Cay, privately owned Parrot Cay and some of the most pristine white beaches near Pine Cay. All cays and islands on the southern edge of the Caicos Bank are known for its wicked wall diving and spectacular steep drop-offs. These include West Caicos, French Cay, West Sand Split, Seal Cays, Bush Cays and Ambergris Cay. Long Cay and South Caicos (Cockburn Harbor), also known as the Big South or the Rock, is known as game fishing capital of the Caribbean. Across the Turks Island Passage are Grand Turk and Salt Cay. These two islands have been first discovered by Bermudian salt rakers (traders in salt) in the 16th century. Cockburn Town and Balfour Town are both perfect examples of its once so glorious salt industry. Old windmills, Salinas, cattle and donkeys still remember of this Caribbean history.
Atlantic Humpback Whale watching trips are common between January and early April, especially in the waters near Grand Turk and Salt Cay. Manta rays are feeding along the walls especially in summer. For the rest, you will find plenty of marine species all year long. With so many miles of pretty shoreline, secluded cays and tranquil islets, the Turks and Caicos Islands is one of the top scuba diving destinations in the world.
