Middle Caicos Attractions

Despite being the largest island in Turks and Caicos, Middle Caicos is the least populated of the inhabited land masses in the chain.  This makes it a great destination for those who crave the deserted island feel.  From the beaches to caves, all of the island's attractions center on nature, and you can bet that if you visit you'll be spending your time out in the sun.

There are a small variety of beaches to consider visiting on the island. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, if some of the people in your group are so inclined. Click on the beach names for detailed information about that section of the coast.

If you love to snorkel, a location where that's an option is Lorimers East Beach. Edged by a thicket of trees, Lorimers East Beach features aquamarine waters that crash up onto ivory, powder fine sand.

Another top pick for snorkeling fans is Bambarra Beach. Located on the north shore of Middle Caicos, the shallow waters of Bambarra Beach are framed by tiki huts and a wealth of Casuarina trees that protect from the sun. The beach, which stretched along the coast for several miles, is relatively secluded and rarely sees more than a handful of visitors at a time.

Lorimers North Beach: With no buildings of note to be found for quite a ways surrounding Lorimers North Beach, visitors will encounter a type of quite and seclusion they have only dreamed of. If you've always wanted to spend a day on a deserted beach, this locale is the perfect opportunity.

Luckily, you'll find other beaches on the island. To read our complete page about beaches, follow this link.
