This protected region offers several of the finest dive sites in the Turks and Caicos. Because the wall and barrier reef is found off the west side of West Caicos, the reefs here are usually protected from the typical east southeast trade winds. The snorkelling along the coastal cliffs is also spectacular.
5 star rating for West Caicos Marine National Park by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
At over 981 acres (397 hectares), this protected area includes most of the west coast of West Caicos. Over a dozen poplar dive sites are found in the West Caicos Marine National Park, including many of the sheerest wall dive sites in the Turks and Caicos. It’s common for depths to start at about 45ft (14m) and fall away into the thousands. See Providenciales Diving for information on visiting these beautiful reefs.
As in any protected area in the Turks and Caicos, littering and any type of fishing are prohibited. Removal of any natural objects or historical artifacts is also illegal.
