West of Cockburn Town off the west coast of Grand Turk, the snorkeling at Pillary Beach is known for sea turtles, eagle rays and colorful sponges. This snorkel spot can be accessed from shore, but is a popular snorkel boat tour destination. The main reef is a long swim from the shore but there is plentiful marine life along the way. The Pillary Beach snorkeling dive site is located southwest of the airport and north of the Cruise Center near the Bohio Resort

Grand Turk is located 70 miles southeast of Providenciales and there is no public ferry service.To reach the snorkeling on Turks and Caicos by air, fly into Providenciales International Airport (PLS) located in the middle of the island. To reach Grand Turk from Providenciales, you will need to fly on a domestic airline into Grand Turk McCartney airport (GDT) which takes about 30 minutes. The two inter-island airlines serving Grand Turk are interCaribbean and Caicos Express Airways. TIP - Grand Turk island is very popular with cruise ships that deposit several hundred thousand visitors a year, so plan your days on Grand Turk to avoid these invasions.

Overall, Pillary Beach is the 18th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 32 snorkeling dives in Turks And Caicos. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Pillary Beach including Gibbs Cay, Salt Cay, The Wall, The Library, Old Pier / South Dock and Governors Beach.
