EXPLORE THE OUTER ISLANDS

North & Middle Caicos  

 

Let us take you on a private, guided tour to visit spectacular beaches and seascapes of the beautiful, rural islands of North and Middle Caicos that harkens back to the old West Indies.

The morning starts with picking you up at your hotel and taking a gorgeous 30 minute ferry ride to North Caicos. We hop in a waiting SUV and drive through big open spaces and tiny villages on our way to Middle Caicos. Along the way, there's a good possibility we'll see flamingos feeding in the shallow ponds.

We take a guided walk through the  Conch Bar Caves to explore one of the biggest cave systems in the Caribbean Region. Then it's off to nearby Mudjin Harbour where we walk along the spectacular bluffs of the Crossing Point Trail and discover hidden coves. You'll step on to the most beautiful beach you have ever seen and swim in a turquoise sea you'll probably have to yourself. 

At lunch time, we visit a local cafe for a delicious lunch for fresh caught snapper, conch, or vegetarian options.

On the way back to North Caicos, we stop off a the Barracuda Bar–the coolest thatched roofed bar right on the beach where we drink coconut water straight out of fresh cut, cold coconuts. 

Along the way, you hear stories of the fascinating history of the  people who lived here. Taino Indians. Columbus’s landing in 1492. Pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read and actual pirate attacks. Loyalists who came here after the American Revolution. Slave ships. Modern day Turks & Caicos.
