3. South Caicos
Known locally as Big South, South Caicos is home to some of the best fishing in the islands and is the fishing capital of the TCI. It boasts Cockburn Harbour, the best natural harbour and the island’s only settlement as well as several fishing plants, processing most of the nation's seafood harvest of lobster, conch and fish for export and local consumption.
Fishing is best here because of its perfect location at the southeastern end of The Caicos Islands just 22 miles west of Grand Turk with an area of 8.5 square miles.
Other features of the island include the 18th century Commissioner's House, old salt works, and the Boiling Hole, which fed the saltpans that once made South Caicos the islands' largest producer of salt after salt cay. Big South hosts the annual regatta attended by people from all over the world.
Flamingos in the middle of the salt ponds, the Boiling Hole and more from Big South... Just a bit of first hand advice: watch your step, otherwise, you'll loose your flip flops...
