Although a bit more weather beaten than the beaches of Providenciales, South Caicos is home to quite a few beautiful coastlines.
South Caicos is definitely home to varied and vibrant marine life, and exquisite snorkelling sites can be found at many beaches, however most sites are highly weather-dependent.
White marine limestone cliffs, reaching heights of about thirty feet in places, hide small coves and beaches. Highlands Bay and Valley Bay Beach are two of the larger beaches in this area. In addition to these sites, the ruins of Highland Estate and livestock wells can be seen inland close by.
The extreme northern point of South Caicos, Plandon Cay Cut offers truly unparalleled water hues, with breath taking ranges of blue, turquoise and topaz. Several different natural geological actions account for the amazing palette here.
The entire east coast of the island is perfect for flotsam beachcombing. Because of the adjacent Turks Islands Passage and an unusual upwelling that takes place in the area, there is always interesting and strange finds to be had.
Due to the largely non-existent tourism market on South Caicos, road signage and developed beach accesses are absent.
Other than East Bay, all beaches on the island tend to be difficult to find and many are only accessible by unpaved (and easily overlooked!) roads and tracks. We advise printing our South Caicos map for reference.
