The accommodation options on South Caicos are a bit more limited when compared to the offerings on the other main islands in the Turks and Caicos.
East Bay Resort offers guests the complementary use of water sports equipment use, including kayaks, sailing kayaks and snorkelling gear, as well as bicycles.
The new Sailrock Resort is found on the secluded Long Beach on the northern peninsula of South Caicos. Guest amenities include the use of kayaks, paddle boards, Hobie Cat sailboats, and snorkelling gear.
South Caicos has quite a few varied and impressive coasts, however, only a few beaches are excellent for general swimming. East Bay and the remote Long Beach (Sailrock Beach) and Plandon Cay Cut Beach offer the finest ocean conditions.
All scheduled international flights to the Turks and Caicos land at the Providenciales Airport.
The flight option is of course the faster option at under 20 minutes. interCaribbean offers several daily flights, typically on 15 seat turboprop Beech 99s or Beech King Airs. These aircraft are not very large, so there may be luggage constraints, especially for those bringing water sports equipment such as kiteboarding gear.
Caribbean Cruisin' offers a twice-weekly passenger ferry service, which takes a under two hours each way. The ferry may be the better choice for those with large amounts of luggage.
Charter flights and ferry services can be arranged as well, and may make sense for groups.
South Caicos has begun to see a change with several project that have begun over recent years.
The Sailrock project is one such example, and offers both vacation accommodation and private ownership. Sailrock Resort is located on the secluded northern peninsula overlooking both Long Beach (Sailrock Beach) to the east and the scenic Bell Sound to the west. Vacant land and completed luxury villas are available.
At this time, there are no rental villas or bed and breakfast type accommodations available other than what's offered through the full-service resorts.
