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 island of Dellis Cay, in the vicinity of Parrot Cay, this beach is nicely positioned on the coast. You should think about stopping by whether or not you're staying in the vicinity. Dellis Cay stands out because it's one of the best spots for escaping the hustle of Turks and Caicos' urban areas. Most other beaches in Turks and Caicos may be just as refreshing as Dellis Cay, but tend to be busier because they're lined with some of the most famous hotels and restaurants.

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.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. The water here is clear and good for snorkeling, so grab your gear if you're wanting to check out the underwater sites.

If you happen to choose shores that offer an angelic enclave, then you should enjoy Dellis Cay; it's hidden away in a much quieter part of the region.
