Salt Cay is the smallest of the main inhabited islands in the Turks and Caicos. With an area of only 2.6 square miles (6.7 sq km) and a population of only 108 people, this island has a completely different character and persona than Providenciales and the other islands in the country. Located on the south-eastern edge of the Turks and Caicos, Salt Cay is directly exposed to the constant trade winds and bears a unique weather-beaten landscape.
Salt Cay is truly an example of an island time forgot. There’s simply none of the tourism development, all-inclusive resorts, luxury hotels, spas or golf courses that define so many of the other Caribbean destinations. Three small restaurants, specializing in fresh seafood, complete the island’s dining scene.
Day to day life is quiet, there are no paved roads and very few cars. From landing at the tiny and quaint airport (a perfect reflection of the island) to the stuccoed limestone block colonial buildings in Balfour Town, the entire Salt Cay experience is unique. Tranquility is an attraction in itself on Salt Cay, which is difficult to find elsewhere.
