A decent beach, but sea grass grows close to the shore along much of the coast. Access can be difficult.
3 star rating for Wild Cow Run by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
Found on the remote eastern side of Middle Caicos, Wild Cow Run is a 3 miles (4.8 kilometres) Casuarina tree lined beach. An excellent area for flotsam beachcombing, this beach is however not that great for swimming due to the majority of the ocean here having shallow water and dense seaweed.
Due to the wind typically being onshore here, Wild Cow Run is one of the safer kiteboarding beaches on Middle Caicos. If you do venture out to this remote beach, be sure to bring plenty of drinking water in case you run into car problems.
Getting to Wild Cow Run
Access to Wild Cow Run is unfortunately limited. An unpaved road leads northeast from just before Lorimer Village on Middle Caicos (you’ll pass Haulover Plantation on your left) to the Haulover Point area and a four way junction around a small triangular island of brush. As you approach this triangle, you’ll want to keep right and take the first right. At this point you should be on the 43 miles (69 kilometres) stretch of road that leads to both the Wild Cow Run and Cedar Point beaches. As you continue down this unpaved road, some rough and overgrown bulldozed tracks (500 to 1000 feet long) to the beach can be found at intervals on your left. If you continue driving, you arrive at Cedar Point (where the road terminates).
Although still a beautiful beach, seaweed often thickly covers the shore here.
