South Caicos Island, Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) is an eight and a half square mile island home to approximately 900 friendly welcoming people. Surrounded by crystal clear turquoise water, and a lovely coral reef full of wild sea life, South Caicos invites all for a sensual and exhilarating visit.
Also known as the Fishing Capital of the Turks and Caicos, South Caicos offers some of the best sport and deep sea fishing in the region for blue marlin, mahi-mahi, tuna, and others. Just around East Harbor to the west by north-west starts a forty mile wide knee deep bonefish habitat. Professional guides are available to take you to the many schools of bonefish.
With clear turquoise waters, ideal temperatures and marine life that is rich and thriving, this is a perfect place to learn to snorkel. Around the southern edge of the island, snorkelers and sand divers alike will be in their glory exploring the vast variety of coral that surrounds the vertiginous seven-thousand foot wall that’s widely considered one of the finest diving destinations in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
At the south of the Island, the iguana sanctuary of nearby Long Cay Island protects East Harbor, a twenty-four hour “all weather” harbor. Ships and large yachts can enter the harbor with ease along a 900 ft. wide, by 20 ft. deep entrance, with navigation lights on each side. At the north of the Island, is a chain of beautiful small cays followed by the large and uninhabited Island of East Caicos. A short trip from East Bay Resort, this paradise offers some amazing kayaking, paddle boarding and kite surfing.
