One of the most important natural attractions on Providenciales, this property actually consists of Northwest Point Marine Natural Park and Northwest Point Pond Nature Reserve. Touring both sides of the reserve is a great way to spend a few hours of your day.

The ocean front of the reserve is shallow and muddy, while the northwest point is covered by two inland salt water ponds. Mangroves are thick here, and the interior pond is inaccessible because of it. Swimming is permitted on the west side of the reserve.

Small coves and rugged coastlines are home to some of the best bird watching in the chain. Common sightings include Ospreys, Flamingos, Brown Pelicans, Reddish Egrets, Terns, Tricolored Herons, Stilts, and Oyster Catchers.
