Every Caribbean island claims to have pristine beaches and natural beauty, but Turks & Caicos is one of those places that has experiences you can’t find anywhere else in the Caribbean. On Little Water Cay, also known as Iguana Island, there are 2,000 critically endangered Rock Iguanas–the biggest population of Rock Iguanas in the world.
And that’s only one of the attractions. Below sea level there are 200 miles of continuous coral reef, open for diving and snorkeling. In the shallow waters of Gibbs Cay, giant stingrays flock to boats like pigeons. Then in Princess Alexandra National Park, you’ll find 13 miles of undeveloped protected beach.
Watch as Peter shows you how you can kayak deep into mangroves islands, snorkel through undisturbed reefs and experience even more of natural beauty in the first part of Hidden Gems: Turks & Caicos.
