The scenic Northeast Point offers a secluded coastal environment. A great place to explore, whales can also sometimes be seen off the coast during the winter months.
5 star rating for Northeast Point by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
The vibrant ocean colours off Northeast Point.
The far northern end of Salt Cay, this scenic area offers low rocky cliffs and small beaches. When the weather is calm, the
snorkelling here is excellent.
A small bluff at the point offers excellent views of the island. In the distance,
Cotton Cay, Grand Turk, and cruise ships can be seen, along with
whales during the winter months (January through March).
If you have the time, it’s interesting to walk make the .5mile (.9km) along the coast to the south to see the beautiful centuries-old stonework of the inlet channel to Grey Salina, part of the
historical salt industry.
It's possible to see Cotton Cay to the north of Northeast Point.
As is the case throughout Salt Cay, the terrain and vegetation of Northeast Point presents a particularly weather-beaten and rugged appearance. Low hedges of salt-resistant coastal plants cling to the limestone bluffs, and are quite picturesque.
There are sections of relatively hard limestone ironshore coastline, but much of the area is hard sandy dune.
Follow the road that heads north 660ft (200m) west of the
airport. After 1450ft (440m), take a right and continue for 1.5 miles (2.5km). You will pass the ruins of the Windmills Resort, and then
Castaway Villas. The road will turn into a sandy track at this point as it follows the coast.
