Kayaking in South Caicos

Both kayaks and paddle boards are available for guests near the shores of the Caicos Bank. Visitors can spend an exciting afternoon paddling through the tranquil waters and enjoying local wildlife. The area offers frequent sightings of sea turtles, migratory birds, tropical fish and other natural attractions. Kayaks and paddleboards are relatively easy to use and after a quick introduction, users will have no trouble gliding across the crystal clear water surrounding South Caicos. The calm water in the area makes it a great place to get your bearings and develop a new skill. 

Bird-Watching at Boiling Hole

The saltpans at South Caicos once made the island the top salt producers in the region. Now, these areas are reserved for a wide variety of tropical birds. Visitors can expect to see large flocks of pink flamingos, giant frigate birds and others. Guided tours are available. You can also take a bird guide book with you to explore the area and spot tropical species on your own.

A Picnic at Long Beach

Also known as Sailrock Beach, Long Beach is considered one of the best beaches in Turks and Caicos. Have a lunch packed for you at the resort so you can spend an entire day enjoying the clear turquoise water and sprawling white sand shores. The shallow areas are great for relaxed wading. Some areas of the beach are teeming with activities, including kite-surfing. Others are more natural and tranquil, perfect for a long walk.

With these and other nearby attractions, you do not have to go far to see the beauty Turks and Caicos can offer. Make a plan to explore what’s nearby for a truly memorable tropical island vacation.
