North West Point

Northwest Point is home to the Northwest Point Marine Natural Park and the Northwest Point Pond Nature Reserve, so it is easy to see why this Providenciales locale is popular amongst Eco-tourists. Not only is this spot a popular nesting breeding ground for a wide array of birds (great the for birders out there!), but the offshore reef can make for a promising snorkeling setting when the water isn't rough.

The landscape of North West Point is rugged and rocky, and features two inland salt water ponds, a mangrove tree encircled shallow, muddy salt flat, and a number of small coves.

North West Point is not great for swimming, however, when the water is relatively calm, snorkeling can yield great results. Birders should be on the lookout for Oyster Catchers, Stilts, Flamingos, Great and Reddish Egrets, and more.
