You’ll definitely want to visit the end of this peninsula and take in the vistas at the channel that separates North Caicos from Bay Cay. For actual swimming and snorkelling, Horsestable Beach comes up short when compared to the other North Caicos beaches.
5 star rating for Horsestable Beach by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
The amazing Greenwich Creek and Bay Cay.
Horsestable Beach (also known as Horse Stable Beach) continues to the east from where
Whitby Beach ends. The western side of this beach is quiet nice albeit a bit rocky, however, the eastern end of this beach is spectacular.
rental vacation villas are located on the western side of this beach, but the area is nevertheless secluded and generally deserted.
Greenwich Creek and the Bay Cays Channels
The far eastern point of Horsestable Beach is one of the most scenic spots in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Here, the channels of
Greenwich Creek split North Caicos,
Bay Cay and
Major Hill Cay. The shallow water, sand bars and channels create amazing turquoise and blue hues.
In the shallow water off the beach, small sand bars, made of pristine white sand, gradually shift depending on weather conditions.
Wildlife is abundant as well. If you spend a little time in the area, you’ll spot pelicans, ospreys, egrets, stingrays, and possibly juvenile lemon sharks.
