Parrot Cay has long been the resort choice of the rich and famous, and there’s an extensive list of celebrities that have spent time on the cay. The private island is located off of North Caicos and supports a luxury resort and several high-end vacation homes. The COMO Parrot Cay Resort manages both the long-standing hotel, as well as a number of the properties that are offered for vacation rentals.
The Parrot Cay Resort strives to provide a complete experience, and to complement the sand and sea aspect of the stay the resort offers gourmet dining, a full-featured spa, and a full range of outdoor activities.
Parrot Cay does not have an airport, so transit to the cay is by small ferry vessels, which depart from the Leeward area on Providenciales. As with the ferry ride to nearby Pine Cay, the route is quite scenic and passes some of our beautiful cays such as Little Water Cay, Half Moon Bay, Water Cay, and Fort George Cay.
Parrot Cay is an excellent choice for those seeking an incredible beach, high levels of service, and great dining.
Ambergris Cay offers a truly unique vacation experience. The private cay is located on the remote south-eastern side of the Caicos Banks, and quite a distance from any other inhabited island in the country. The cay is exposed to the constant eastern trade winds, and consequently has a rugged yet stunning environment. On the island’s east coast is a long windswept beach, and on the sheltered west coast, where the resort is located, are small and very calm beaches, which have the shallow Caicos Banks as a backdrop.
Near Ambergris Cay is Little Ambergris Cay, which is a large and uninhabited nature reserve cay that has red mangrove wetlands, white sand beaches, and beautiful sand bar systems. The ocean water around the cay, especially off the western side, is some of the most breathtaking in the Turks and Caicos.
Ambergris Cay Resort offers a high level of service and dining. Choose from intimate beachfront villas at the resort, or larger villas found across the cay that are managed by the resort. Transit to Ambergris Cay is via plane. The Ambergris Cay Airport (MBAC) is an international airport and can accept flights from outside of the Turks and Caicos.
Ambergris Cay is a perfect choice for those who value privacy and seclusion. The fishing opportunities around the cay are some of the best in the islands.
Pine Cay is a beautiful private island located in the string of small cays between Providenciales and North Caicos. The cay offers one of the finest beaches in the Turks and Caicos, and has a unique and quiet atmosphere, with very low-density development. Transport on Pine Cay is via golf cart on scenic and winding roads, and simply traveling on these sandy routes often provides an immersive nature experience, as they lead through the best Caicos pine forests in the country, palms and dune planes, and tropical dry forest. It’s common to see the Turks and Caicos Islands rock iguana and many types of birds.
The Pine Cay Resort offers accommodations both at its small hotel and in managed villas across the cay. Transit to the cay for those arriving by plane on Providenciales is via small ferry boats. The cay does have the Pine Cay Airport (PIC), which is suitable for small aircraft, yet there are no scheduled flights to the cay, so those wishing to fly in must either have their own private plane or will have to charter a flight.
Pine Cay excels as a quiet beach destination with laid-back luxury.
Salt Cay doesn’t offer the level of luxury that the private cays do, yet does provide elements of the seclusion and atmosphere. Salt Cay has historically been inhabited since the late 1600s, and was the start of the large-scale sea salt industry in the islands, which was the primary economic driver for centuries. Today, the island is largely forgotten and only supports a small population of predominantly elderly persons, both from the island and those from abroad with vacation homes.
The accommodations on Salt Cay consist of a limited number of rental homes, which offer varying levels of amenities and luxury. Salt Cay is exceptional for those who enjoy quiet, scuba diving, scenic coastlines, and limited encounters with other people. There’s a wide range of deserted beaches to explore, from the spectacular North Bay, to many smaller rugged coasts where beachcombing is excellent. Dining choices are quite limited, and shopping even more so.
