12 Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in the Turks and Caicos Islands

    5 Little Water Cay Tour

    About 456 meters across the sea from Providenciales, Little Water Cay (locally known as “Iguana Island”) is home to rare and endangered rock iguanas, and you can hop aboard a boat tour to see these friendly creatures. The iguanas once roamed throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands, but domestic dogs and cats all but wiped them out – except on Little Water Cay where they are protected. The National Trust has developed two boardwalk trails that loop around the island’s north and south side, so you can view the iguanas without disturbing their natural habitat. After you’ve had your wildlife fix, you can take a dip in the turquoise water or relax on the beautiful white-sand beaches. It’s also possible to kayak to the island, however you need to be careful of the strong currents in the channel.
