Salt Cay, Turks and Caicos Islands

Salt Cay

Salt Cay being just 2.6 Square miles, is the smallest island in the Turks and Caicos Islands, but this very small island once played a vital part to the economy and the development of the Turks and Caicos islands in a very large way.
Back in the mid 1600’s, the commence of colonization and the Salt Mining industry were first established on this island by the Bermudian settlers(hence the name given Salt Cay) because of it’s great success and high demand, the salt mining ponds were later expanded to Grand Turk and South Caicos, which in turn attracted more settlers to the country.
Since the end of the salt mining industry in the late 1970’s, Salt Cay has become a hidden gem for anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful life.
Today Salt Cay is the pinnacle of what being on an island truly means, from the very quiet atmosphere, the close proximity to the best beautiful secluded beaches, amazing diving, snorkeling, great view of humpback whale watching, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, exploring the historical sites, delicious local food and drinks, the ferrel animals and meeting the amazingly friendly residents.
If an authentic island relaxing life you seek, SALT CAY is a must visit ! 🌅🐳 🤿 🏖️ 🏝️🇹🇨🇹🇨🇹🇨🇹🇨
