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.

  • We didn’t see much of anything. We were swimming in the same area as everyone else. The views are pretty but did not have a good snorkeling experience.  more »
  • I am not the strongest ocean swimmer and I appreciated how close the reef access was from the beach. You can see plenty of fish and coral right along the shore. The buoys mark the edges of the reef...  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.
