Attractions on South Caicos

Sightseeing on South Caicos will take tourists on a hiking tour through the history of the tiny, quiet island without them even realizing what hit them.  Old buildings and warehouses which once played a role in the salt industry are little more than relics of the past now, but they are great for photographs, herds of wild horses and cows roam near the near-deserted beaches, and numerous species of bird make birding a great activity any day of the week.  


You'll find a good group of beaches to choose from on and near the island. Just click on the name of the beach to read a detailed article concerning that part of the coast.

If you love snorkeling, a place offering that option is High Point North. With no sign of civilization for several miles, visitors can drive right up to a sandy clearing just before the beach for parking.

Another top pick for snorkeling fans is Long Cay Beach. Long Cay Beach is set at the end of a long dirt road, where guests may park their vehicle just short of where the sand begins.

Big Ambergris Cay: The extreme seclusion and uninhabited qualities of this island are a main attraction for some people who enjoy nature's wild beauty. Humpback whales migrate in large numbers through the waters in the winter and are a sight to behold.

Luckily, you will find even more choices for beaches on and near the island. Use this link to visit our guide to beaches for South Caicos.
