Welcome to Coral Gardens,

an intimate and luxurious resort located directly on a secluded stretch of Grace Bay in Princess Alexandria National Marine Park. Grace Bay is internationally renowned and called “the best beach in the world” by many. Our spacious and finely appointed accommodations offer breathtaking views of the island’s famous aquamarine waters, and are just footsteps from the Coral Gardens reef sanctuary, home to the island’s premier snorkeling.

    One a few places on the island that is free. the beach is crowded as there is a big hotel in the restaurant right next to it. Snorkeling is OK. Little reefs here and there. You could see sharks rays, turtles and other small fish.

    Some of the best snorkeling during our trip was at Coral Gardens. It is very easy to get to and plenty of parking (set your Maps to Coral Gardens Resort). The beach itself is beautiful of course, being an extension of Grace Bay. But we were amazed at the snorkeling. You can't miss the reef since they have it marked and roped off. Just swim all around the outside of the ropes and be prepared to see some amazingly colorful fish. We didn't see any turtles or rays here (try Smith's Reef for that) but we loved how easy it was to get to and how close to shore the reef was. This would be a perfect place to bring children to snorkel. In our opinion, no trip to T&C would be complete without a stop here!

    Great place to snorkel! There are a lot of different kinds of sea animals and beautiful coral flora. We even sow a sea turtle!

    Unfortunately Nothing like last time when I visited about 10 years ago. Most of the reef is dead with not many marine life to see. However there are still some big fish and occasional sand rays.

    Checked out Coral Gardens Reef for a beach day during our trip to Turks and Caicos in late February. The reef was decent for something right off the shore. They are currently restoring it so there’s a circle of orange buoys you can swim around to check out the restoration. The day we went though, the winds were pretty strong and the water was cold and choppy, so it really wasn’t for beginners that day. I got knocked into the coral a couple times in the shallower areas. I imagine on a calmer day it’s easier.
