Beaches on North Caicos

Everything points north on the island of North Caicos.  The best beaches on the island are without a doubt found to the north, running along the eight and a half miles of shoreline.  Most of these beaches have medium sized sandy spaces with soft white powder, but there are one or two that have a bit of a rockier appearance, which is great for photo ops. 

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will find a good group of beaches to choose from on the island. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. For a detailed review of a single beach click on the names of the ones you are interested in.

Cottage Pond Beach

A nice beach where you may find people snorkeling is Pumpkin Bluff Pond Beach. Isolated from civilization, Pumpkin Bluff Beach stretches into the horizon without a city structure to overshadow its beauty. The beach got its name for the odd orange hue that sometimes emanates from the sand and water.

Another good choice for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Sandy Point Beach. Located on North Caicos, Sandy Point Beach was once nearly deserted, only known by boaters and locals who reveled in its isolation. Recently, however, several resort developments have brought the beauty that is Sandy Point to many a vacationer's attention.

Horse Stable Beach: Several paved roads lead to the beach, where you can find parking along the road directly in front of it.
