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, near Parrot Cay, this beach is nicely positioned on the coast. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying in the vicinity. Dellis Cay is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's one of the best spots for getting away from vacation stresses, like overly crowded restaurants and attractions.
