Water Sports On South Caicos

Watersports At East Bay Resort

If you are seeking a vacation where you can spend every moment possible on the water, you will love the pristine conditions and variety of water sports on South Caicos. Whether to choose to have fun above or below the water’s surface, you will enjoy crystal clear, turquoise coloured water and a pristine marine environment.

South Caicos is located on the third largest barrier reef in the world. Thanks to a relatively low profile in terms of popular Caribbean destinations, the diving conditions are simply fabulous. Divers can take a short five-minute boat ride from the shore at East Bay Beach and reach the reef. The short distance to the reef provides an opportunity to do a morning dive, return to shore for lunch, and then do a second dive in the afternoon.
