The cay is laid-back and quiet, and there simply isn’t the bustle and crowds that so many other destinations have. You can often have miles of secluded beach to yourself.
Booking Your Trip
Balfour Town Beach, Salt Cay.
Planning your trip is easy. You simply need to book airfare ($180 roundtrip, 2015) and transportation. We recommend renting an off-road golf-cart ($60), but it’s possible to cycle or walk. The island is 2.6 mi sq (6.7 km sq).
The main Town Salina, with the White House in the background.
Depending on your interests, you may want to consider staying overnight or for a few days.
If you simply want to see the island and historical sights, one day is typically sufficient (if you have a rental cart). However, if diving or whale watching are important, you may want extra time on Salt Cay.
The only accommodations on Salt Cay are rental villas, and these tend to be reasonable in price when compared to the Providenciales offerings.
