Mudjin Harbour

Mudjin Harbor is a three mile (4.8km) long section of beach and coastline on the north of Middle Caicos. It's considered by many to be the finest landscape in the Turks and Caicos.

High limestone cliffs and interspersed beaches continue from Conch Bar out to Juniper Hole on the far northwest point of the island.

Wade's Green Plantation

Wade’s Green is the best-preserved historical plantation ruin in the Turks and Caicos Islands and is a fascinating site to see when visiting North Caicos. We recommend that you visit this historical if you have the time.

Cottage Pond

Found close off of Sandy Point Road in North Caicos, Cottage Pond is a 150 foot (45m) diameter and 250 foot (76m) deep naturally-formed submerged sinkhole.

The feature is technically referred to as a blue hole, and the geological action that created it is called the Karst process. Sea level greatly effects blue hole formation, which is probably why the Middle Caicos Ocean Hole (likely the widest blue hole in the world), found 19 miles (31km) away has a similar depth.

Flamingo Pond Overlook

Found off of King’s Road between Whitby and Horsestable Beach, this easy stop offers an excellent view south over the Flamingo Pond wetland on North Caicos. As the location’s name suggests, this area is typically inhabited by the West Indian Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber, and also known as the American Flamingo or the Caribbean Flamingo), and the flocks here are at times in the thousands.

The main overlook area is about 300 feet from the pond, and the flamingos may be even farther out, so binoculars or a spotting scope will be necessary to get a really good view of the birds.

Bottle Creek Lagoon

Bottle Creek can refer to two locations on North Caicos, the body of water and wetlands to the east of the island, and the adjacent settlement of Bottle Creek Village. This page refers to the body of water and the nature reserve.

One of the most scenic locations in the Turks and Caicos, Bottle Creek Lagoon is a five square mile lagoon found between the east side of North Caicos and the protected nature reserve of Bay Cay and East Bay Cay. The majority of Bottle Creek is quite shallow with a sandy bottom, allowing only for kayaks, paddleboards and smaller power vessels.

Government Farm (North Caicos)

This government-sponsored farm produces much of the produce used on North and Middle Caicos. Along with vegetables and bananas for consumption, native plants are grown here for conservation reasons, and goats are also raised. This was the location for raising seedlings for the Caicos Pine Recovery Project. Visitors welcome.

Three Marys Cays

Three Marys Cays are three limestone ironshore rocks found close off the north coast of North Caicos. The general area is quite scenic and uninhabited, making it a popular spot to visit for day trips, picnics and beachcombing.

Like much of the coastline on the island, water conditions are typically mild and perfect for swimming. There can be a little floating seaweed at times, but rarely enough to be bothersome.
