DISCOVER NORTH & MIDDLE CAICOS
Join experienced guides on a private adventure to explore North & Middle Caicos. Whether you are looking for amazing beaches, a subterranean cave adventure, an energetic nature walk, or a cultural experience; Amphibious Adventure Travel knows how and when to get you there.
Visiting North & Middle Caicos provides a very different experience from the tourism hub of Providenciales. The pace of the islands is relaxed and extremely friendly, the hospitality warm and generous. Transport to North Caicos is by way of a 25-minute boat journey. The remaining travel across these two islands is then done by vehicle.
THE HIGHLIGHTS OF NORTH AND MIDDLE CAICOS
COTTAGE POND BLUE HOLE: A short drive along the road from the North Caicos Marina is a circular and attractive freshwater pond that is in fact a deep blue hole. This isolated geological feature has led to the evolution of unique marine organisms and can be a good place to see ducks and grebes. Visit time: 5-10 minutes
WADE’S GREEN PLANTATION: The largest of the 18th-century cotton plantations was located on North Caicos near the village of Kew and is now a National Trust heritage site. Walkthrough the attractive wooded area to view the limestone buildings as you learn about this crucial period in the history of the Turks and Caicos. Walking time: 30-45 minutes.
FLAMINGO POND NATURE RESERVE: Almost dissecting North Caicos in half-lies Flamingo Pond. Named for the hundreds of pink flamingos that live there most of the year. The population fluctuates and the viewing experience, always using binoculars, varies according to where the flamingos are situated. Visit time: 5-10 minutes
CONCH BAR CAVES NATIONAL PARK: The extensive limestone caves near the village of Conch Bar on Middle Caicos are impressive and fun to explore. The 2 miles of mostly dry passages are easily navigated without specialized equipment, but the cave system does not have walkways, handrails or fixed lighting. The floor is uneven and sometimes slippery, so some agility is therefore advised. Flashlights are provided and solid shoes with grip are recommended. Flip-flops are not suitable. The site is managed by the TCI National Trust. Explore time: 45-60+ minutes.
MUDJIN HARBOUR BLUFF & BEACH: One of the most famous landmarks in the Turks and Caicos is Mudjin Harbour which is located on Middle Caicos. Dragon Cay connects two beaches which can offer amazing swimming during good weather. The bluff above the beach provides a memorable view and the coral pathway leads to a secluded beach down a hidden stairway. A restaurant and bar overlooking Mudjin Harbour provide a good option for lunch. 30 minutes +
BAMBARRA BEACH: A few miles on from Conch Bar is Bambarra Beach where colourful huts, miles of white sand beach and a shallow sand bar make for a great pit stop. Enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking the turquoise waters and distant reefs.
