South Caicos

Latitude N 21 ° 30′
Longitude W 71 ° 30′

South Caicos is an 8.5 square mile island which attracts visitors for its fishing, birdlife, history, fresh seafood dishes and diving.

South Caicos, or The Big South, is the fishing capital of the islands, and boasts the best natural harbor. The island hosts several fishing plants, processing most of the nation’s harvest of lobster, conch and fish for export and local consumption. It is home to the annual event, the Big South Regatta each May.

The sleepy little harbor town of Cockburn Harbor was once the most active commercial community in the Turks and Caicos islands. It hosted royalty and rogues throughout its rich history. Historical features of the island include the 18th century Commissioner’s House where Queen Elizabeth stayed during her visit to South in 1966. Of interest also are the old salt works, and the Boiling Hole, which fed the salt pans that once made South Caicos the islands’ largest producer of salt. Although long since abandoned the old salt pans have become the home of a variety of bird species including flocks of flamingos, a bird watchers delight.

The town reflects its British and Bermudian heritage with many examples of the classic architectural design, quaint stone walls bordering property, its narrow streets and friendly helpful people. Not to be missed is a trip to the iguana preserve on Long Cay.

Scuba divers delight in South Caicos’ pristine diving with breath taking walls, vast varieties of coral and marine life that dare to be rivaled. Large pelagics such as sharks, eagle rays, loggerhead turtles, spotted rays, octopus and barracudas all share the sites with a spectrum of macro life.South Caicos another of the Turks and Caicos’ ideal location for whale watching during their winter migration.Truly an underwater photographers dream. It’s no surprise that South Caicos is home to the marine research arm of the renowned School for Field Studies.

Connecting flights, TCI Ferry and boat charters are available, making South Caicos easily accessible.

South Caicos – “The Big South” as it fondly called is the one of the country’s original centers of commerce – active in the salt and fishing industry for over a century. The salt industry has long gone but fishing continues to thrive. Fishermen bring in their daily catch of conch, spiny lobster, grouper, maui maui and snapper to the dock in the “downtown” area. Every afternoon you will see cleaning and dispersing of the catch of the day. South Caicos hosts an annual “24th of May” regatta with traditional boat racing, donkey races, Maypole dancing, a beauty pageant, jump up, and other sports competitions. South has a full size runway and small terminal; this is scheduled to expand over upcoming year. Other expansion is also planned, largely due to the Company CMK, a group of dedicated, energetic young men that have a dream, a vision and a plan. They also have the means to make it happen. Two developments are currently underway, Sailrock and Bell Sound. Bell Sound is a subdivision of 236 home sites with allocations for community parks, green spaces and a public beach. Sailrock is a planned resort community; the home site is tiered from a 100 elevated ridge down to the ocean front lots. The views are breathtaking and if you have the dream you can own a home where you only need to look from your deck and see the humpback whales playfully passing by in the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
