Salt Cay, Salt Cay

#7 of 17 in Nature in Turks and Caicos
Reef Island Must See
The second largest of the Turk Islands, Salt Cay offers a getaway full of swimming, sunbathing, diving, and whale-watching. Once the site of a thriving salt industry, the secluded island is now known for its picturesque seaside towns. Surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and featuring beaches with soft golden sand, it is home to fewer than 100 full-time residents. Hire a golf cart--it’s the best way to get around the island to discover its hidden beauties.
