Iguanas EVERYWHERE

Very cool experience walking among the iguana colonies. The tide pools here are INCREDIBLE! One of our favorite excursions of all time.

If you want to visit the iguanas...which you should, go by kayak or on a tour that includes admission. If you go yourself, park down the beach always for some beautiful scenery.

We loved this beach even more than Grace Bay; the waters were as crystal clear and the sands powder soft, but so much quieter and less crowded. It was also super fun to see the iguanas on the island! We stopped here as part of our half day snorkel tour with Island Vibes.

While you are visiting Turk and Caicos, you must take a boat ride to this deserted island! I loved it!

Rented Kayaks with Big Blue Unlimited and paddled across to little water cay to visit the iguanas. Fabulous afternoon completed with a walk to Half Moon Bay while searing out Iguanas.

This is a very nice attraction to see and the Iguana's just stand really still to see you. You can only get here by boat and there are different tours to do and not very expensive.

After figuring out that one of the easiest ways to get to the island was booking through Caribbean cruising, we were off on a five minute boat ride to the island. We gave ourselves 1.5 hrs on the island. We could have done 2hrs because we went swimming on the wonderful secluded beach. The guide was nice and provided a... More

A deserted nation park paradise. We hired a captain to drop us off and pick us up. At the dock we met the two park rangers. They signed us in. Showed us the path. Taught us about the iguanas. Then set us on our way. We spent 3 hours there but could have stayed all day. After we left the... More
