Once the number one island for salt mining and export, South is still full of history and local culture. Home to Cockburn Harbour, the oldest settlement in the country, South Caicos is virtually untapped. To this day, you can still see the remains of the old salt ponds, plantations, and colonial style buildings from the early 1800’s. South Caicos is abundant with mangroves, marine life, and miles of secluded beach. Our trips to south are fully customizable; you create your own adventure!
The Seaspice team has deep family roots on South Caicos, and our extensive network on the ground will ensure that your time on the Big South will be an experience of a lifetime.
EXPLORE THE BIG SOUTH
Enjoy Mother Nature in a sixty minute ride across the Caicos banks on one of our go-fast boats. Take a break to watch for turtles and dolphins, enjoy a cold one and marvel at the endless shades of turquoise. Unlike taking a flight, there are no set schedules or check-in times, and you can leave whenever you want, wherever you want, and you can carry whatever you want.
THINGS TO DO
There are many ways to explore South, by car, boat, kayak, bicycle or just walking along the streets and chatting with the local residents. Discover the old salt pans and visit the “Boiling Hole” which connects the salinas to the ocean. From here you can likely enjoy prime views of flocks of flamingos feeding on crustaceans. Fishing, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Turtle Tagging, Kayaking, Paddle Boarding, Biking, Hiking, Cultural Tours … just to mention a few! Spectacular Scuba Diving spots await less than a five minute boat ride from shore. South Caicos is – and has always been – the fishing capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands with rich fishing grounds in close vicinity. If you don’t feel like catching it yourself, you will find the best selection of the freshest seafood in the local restaurants nearby.

“South Caicos has quietly developed a modern yet low density Tourism infrastructure during the last years: There are now three hotels in operation, putting the island at a distant number 2 behind Providenciales in room count. The opening of Sail Rock has further added private luxury Villas to the inventory. While still very laid back, the island now offers the full array of accommodation options and amenities.
