Dellis Cay

Located in a string of uninhabited islands between Providenciales and North Caicos, Dellis Cay is a 560 acre island known for its beach combing opportunities which typically yield magnificent sand dollars. But the island won't be uninhabited for long. Dellis Cay is currently being developed into a high end resort property, with the possibility of a small residential area as well.

Located on the western coast of the island of Dellis Cay, in the vicinity of Parrot Cay, this beach is nicely positioned on the coast. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying very close. It's often said that Dellis Cay is one of the best spots for escaping the typical tourist haunts. Most other beaches in Turks and Caicos may have the same pleasing, tropical setting as Dellis Cay, but are usually busier because they border some of the area's most popular resorts.

How to Access The Beach
Just a few miles off the coast of Providenciales, Dellis Cay is accessible only by boat. The trip takes 20 minutes.

Amenities and Ambiance

While the interior of the island is lush and green, the coast line is comprised of porcelain white sand that give way to crystalline waters. The waters off the coast of Dellis Cay are shallow and calm, making them perfect for snorkeling, while the beaches themselves are typically so deserted that visitors often feel as though they are entirely alone on the island.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. Fortunately, the water here is fit for snorkeling, so bring along some gear if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration.

If you find that you enjoy shores which bring visitors a serene haven, then you will want to try Dellis Cay; it is hidden away in a less urbanized section of Dellis Cay.
