This rugged coast offers small beaches and low cliffs. Decent for swimming and snorkeling yet not exceptional. The best place to watch the sunset on Salt Cay.
4 star rating for South District Beach by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands

The continuation to the south of the Balfour Town Beach coast, this beach fronts the quiet settlement of South District. Due to an overabundance of rocks, South District beach isn’t great for swimming. Snorkeling is also lacking. The beach gradually improves to the south.

Low soft marine limestone cliffs line nearly the entirety of the coast. Small patches of beach are interspersed between outcroppings, however these can largely be submerged at high tide.

The South District coastline is an excellent place to watch the sunset and look for the fleeting “ green flash”.


When visiting, we recommend continuing to the scenic South Point and South Wells region. Along with the colorful coastal vegetation, the stalwart Turks and Caicos donkeys can often be seen wandering the seaside bushlands.

Getting Here

It’s very easy to access this beach. Follow the main road along Town Salina (Victoria Street) south. After passing the South District village, the road will be close to the coast. There are many paths and roads to the coast between the oceanfront villas and houses.
