Do you dream of waking up, walking out the door and swimming on a beach where no one has walked in days or weeks? Of getting away from almost everything?
Do you like rocky coastlines? White sand beaches? Crystal clear water?
Do you watch the sunset and wonder what it would look like with nothing between you and the sun? Have you ever seen a "green flash"?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you need to come to Salt Cay and become part of the island time forgot.
Located on the southern tip of the Bahama chain are the Turks and Caicos Islands. The TCI are a British Crown Colony and are part of the British West Indies. We are approximately 700 miles southeast of Miami and immediately north of the island of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic/Haiti).
The point of entry is Providenciales (Provo; PLS) and from there you take a smaller plane to Salt Cay, a short 25 minute flight away.
The island is home to about 80 people, a few golf carts and even fewer cars. There is no newspaper and no one really cares. Time stops when you arrive.
World class diving. Humpback Whales and Hawksbill Turtles. Sharks, Sting Rays, Eagle Rays and beautiful, pristine corals. Ospreys, Herons, Egrets. Hikes, naps and whale watching.
Salt Cay is a part of the Historic Trust, and reflects a time long since past--we're the Island Time Forgot.
No phone, no faxes, no worries. Relax and revitalize while you enjoy underwater adventure, the most beautiful, uninhabited beaches in the world, and old world charm.
