South Caicos Attractions

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 will discover a handful of beaches to choose from on and near the island. Click on the name of the beach to get additional information concerning that section of the coast.

One beach where you may find people snorkeling 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 visitors who enjoy snorkeling 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: Named after the waxy substance that comes off the migrating humpback whales, Big Ambergris Cay is an island in the southeast area of the Turks & Caicos chain. Because of its relatively new popularity as a tourist area the island has a kind of wild beauty that has been virtually untouched.

Luckily, you'll find a few more beaches on and near the island. You can read this page if you'd like to find out additional facts.
