The West Caicos Marine National Park (WCMNP) occupies an area of 980 acres in West Caicos, from the high water mark at Logwood Point (Cardinal Point) to Yankee Town and north along the high water mark to Logwood Point. The primary uses of the WCMNP are tourism (diving, snorkelling) and ecosystem services. Eighteen dive sites are regularly used by dive companies out of Providenciales. A luxury Ritz Carlton resort, marina and residential community are slated to commence development in 2014. Once this development is operational, additional uses and pressures on the WCMNP will take place.
