Little Water Cay, Providenciales

4.4
#6 of 15 in Nature in Turks and Caicos
Head to the nature reserve of Little Water Cay, otherwise known as 'Iguana Island'. The cay accomodates some of the few remaining rock iguanas that used to inhabit most of the islands in the Turks and Caicos. Access the cay by tour boat or kayak from the Leeward Marina on Providenciales. Wooden boardwalks map out the island and due to the endangered nature of the iguanas it's a requirement to stay on the paths. Pristine waters surround the cay, ideal for snorkelling and observing an abundance of marine life.

  • We love nature and have decided for this reason for the trip to Little Water Cay. The boat ride there was entertaining. We saw some dolphins and turtles in the water. Come on Little Water Key we saw there is a small nature paradise. Many iguanas on the beach that were also not very shy. We have enjoyed this trip

Where to stay in Providenciales

Most accommodations in Providenciales line the northern coast, along the wineglass-curved beach. Grace Bay and The Bight Settlement offer the best range of options, with a plethora of ultra-luxurious beach resorts, as well modest condos and rental apartments. Regardless of where you stay, you can expect a swimming pool, easy beach access, and air-conditioned facilities. For something a bit more laidback, look north to the area near Mangrove Cay.
