Exploring South Caicos with a Jeep Wrangler. Many of the roads outside of Cockburn Harbour are unpaved.
South Caicos is quite a small island, with a total landmass of about 8 mi² (21 km²). Rental cars, bicycles and walking are the main transportation choices for visitors. There are no buses or public transport of any kind.
If you’re stopping by South Caicos on a
day trip, we highly recommend renting a car so that you’ll be able to get to all of the main sights with ease. However, for those who are staying overnight for multiple days, bicycles may suffice for everything other than visiting the
beautiful coasts of the remote northern peninsula.
If you're arriving on South Caicos by air, be advised that the
airport is located about 1.6 miles north of Cockburn Harbour, and not within walking distance of any of the
hotels or resorts. Taxis are not normally waiting at the airport.
