Snorkeling and Diving off Grand Turk
Thanks to the archipelago’s translucent waters, some of the most spectacular snorkeling and diving on the planet are here. Pillory Beach, a protected cove fronting Cockburn Town, is of particular note, and Horseshoe Bay and the Wall Reef are both in the can’t-miss category. The latter begins at shallow depths and drops down a whopping 2,100 meters (7,000 feet). No matter where you take the plunge, you’re apt to see—in addition to myriad fish—sea turtles, spiny lobsters and loads of sea stars.
