Located on Grand Turk, this is the island’s most celebrated beach. Popular amongst beachgoers, divers, and snorkelers alike, Governor’s Beach has the white sands visitors to the Turks and Caicos have come to expect, but it also has something else up its sleeve that makes it one of the peak attractions in all of the Caribbean.
Just offshore of Governor’s Beach lies the famous Wall, where the third largest coral reef structure in the world makes a sharp drop into 6000+ feet of blue Atlantic water. Divers and snorkelers alike come here to enjoy some of the best underwater diving in the world. A full spectrum of coral, fish, and larger creatures fill the waterways. Special sightings include hammerhead sharks, sea turtles, and the migratory North Atlantic humpback whales.
Those that choose not to enjoy the underwater world will appreciate Governor’s Beach’s pine trees for some shade. Picnic benches and accommodations are also to be found here, as is the Columbus Landfall National Park – a park dedicated to the original landfall of Christopher Columbus in 1492.
