Grand Turk, the capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands, lies just 575 air miles southeast of Miami. The population is small by North American standards, and the local people are friendly and cater to divers who come to experience this unique island. The combination of an unspoiled island, spectacular wall diving and Oasis Divers' professionalism, along with Osprey Beach Hotel's down-to-earth friendliness and highend amenities, will have you planning your return long before the last dive has ended.
When diving with Oasis Divers, not only is your gear handled for you, but the boat ride to the dive sites are so short that you might wonder why the boat stopped Oasis Divers is a PADI Dive Resort and operates a four-boat fleet, all set up to handle small groups, so the diving remains intimate, and the marine-life encounters are always plentiful and diverse. The picturesque Osprey Beach Hotel offers 27 beachfront rooms and suites with balconies providing aweinspiring ocean views, and 10 atrium rooms overlooking the courtyard. Soak in the clear beautiful waters and sunbathe on their white sandy beaches. Be lulled to sleep by the soft sound of ocean waves. Your rooms are right on the beach and just steps from Oasis Divers.
Experience an unhurried pace of island life while relaxing at the resort's beachside freshwater pool, Birdcage Bar and Restaurant. The Birdcage serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a popular BBQ with live music twice weekly. It is the best place on this beautiful island to check out the sunset and see the elusive "Green Flash."
You can also enjoy horseback riding on the beach, spa treatments at Spa Anani, snorkel trips to uninhabited Gibb's Cay, whale-watching (seasonal), and cycling. Dive/lodge packages are affordable and available year-round. Don't miss out on true paradise!
