Along with Conch Bar and Bambarra, Lorimers is one of three settlements on Middle Caicos.
Found on the east coast of Middle Caicos, not much is located in this tiny settlement. With only about a dozen residents, there are no shops or gas stations. Most who live are either retired or fish and farm.
An excellent kayak or paddle board launching area can be found on the coastal side of the village at Lorimers Landing.
Origin of the Name and History
The village is named after the British military doctor and plantation owner John Lorimer. Upon his death, his will stated that his slaves were freed and they named the village after him.
