South Caicos is the jewel among the islands of the Turks & Caicos. Here is an island where nature prevails with long, white sandy beaches, jagged leeward-side bluffs, quiet back-water bays and salt flats teeming with pink flamingos. It is renowned for its excellent scuba diving, gamefishing and legendary bonefishing. The island is also home to the finest harbor in Turks & Caicos, Cockburn Habour, the most protected and only natural deep-water harbor in the island chain.
Located just 40 miles southeast of the island of Providenciales, South Caicos is one of the smallest islands in the Turks & Caicos archipelago. The island is accessible by South Caicos International airport’s 6,000-foot runway with full customs services, or through Cockburn Harbour, one of only three Ports into Turks & Caicos.
South Caicos is home to approximately nine hundred residents, most of whom reside in the village of Cockburn Harbour. Existing island infrastructure includes electricity, cable television, telephone and wireless communications. In addition, there is one bank, several small grocery stores, service stations and local bars and restaurants. The island is a British oversees territory and the currency is the U.S. Dollar.
