Turks And Caicos: Day 4 (Part 2)

July 17, 2014

Our adventure continued at my favorite place in the Turks and Caicos: Iguana Island.  Although my husband and I had previously visited this special spot on our last trip, it is one of those places that you continue to return to over and over again.  This small island, or cay, is home to the few remaining Rock Iguanas that used to cover most of the islands in the Turks and Caicos.  Unfortunately, now these animals are classified as endangered.

Little Water Cay is only 500 yards from Providenciales and is a short trip via a tour boat.  The main attraction are of course the magnificent iguanas, but the surrounding beach is a sight to behold as well, as it is a color blue that I guarantee you have never seen before!  It might take a couple of minutes before you spot your first iguana, although with a little patience you will see one in no time.

Just as we got into the ocean, it began to pour, so we ran to the boat to take cover.  The captain had prepared for us some fresh conch salad that we devoured.  While we were having lunch, a lemon shark kept us company, endlessly swimming around the boat.

Once the sun started to shine again, my brother and husband decided to do some tubing, which they absolutely loved and could have done for hours on end.

However, our eight unforgettable hours on the boat were up and it was time to return to our home away from home, The Somerset on Grace Bay, for the evening.

    The Turks and Caicos look so incredible! I still remember the posts from your last visit, but now I want to visit myself even more! The color of the water is so amazing as are you photos – have you ever written a post on travel photography or do you think you will in the future? I would love to hear your tips, I love your photography! 🙂
