The centre of activity in the area, Sandy Point Marina is found on the northwest end of North Caicos. This marina is the landing point of the primary Providenciales ferry.
There is ample free parking. The parking lot directly next to dock is the typical pick up and drop off point for rental vehicles.
Sandy Point and the marina can have mosquito and sand flea problems at times (it's difficult to predict, but it's generally after large rains). These can be especially bad late in the day after rainy periods. You may want to consider having insect repellent and long sleeves available while waiting for the ferry.
Higg’s Café is the only business located nearby. They serve cold drinks, snacks and takeaway dishes.
Transport and Rental Cars
As is the case throughout the Turks and Caicos, there’s no public transport on North Caicos. Taxis and rental cars are the only ways to get around.

Taxis can typically be found waiting at the marina, however, due to the limited number of vehicles on the island, we advise reserving ahead of your visit if you require one. This is especially the case if you’d like to arrange a taxi island tour.
Agents from the local rental car businesses usually meet visitors directly at the marina. We advise recording your rental company’s phone number in the chance of any disruptions.
The Sandy Point Area
There isn’t much at the settlement of Sandy Point on North Caicos. There’s a small village, the abandoned ruins of the Royal Reef resort project, and a beach.
If you have a bit of time to spare while awaiting the ferry, consider exploring the adjacent Sandy Point Beach. You’ll be able to see the island of Parrot Cay across the channel, and scenic sand bars are sometimes exposed in the area at low tide.
