Little Water Cay#5 in Best Things To Do in Turks & Caicos
- 0.0Food Scene
"Iguana Island" may sound like a scary place, but in Turks & Caicos, the moniker fondly refers to Little Water Cay, home to the islands' remaining endangered population of rock iguanas. The Turks and Caicos National Trust leads efforts to protect the habitat, which is just a short trip by boat from Providenciales' Leeward Marina. Many local companies like Big Blue Collective offer excursions to the island or incorporate the preservation site in other sailing or snorkeling outings. You can also discover Little Water Cay's islets by kayak or stand-up paddleboard. If you try your hand at a stand-up paddleboard or kayak trip through the nearby mangroves, you might catch sight of sea turtles and baby sharks.
Long boardwalks spread across the island give visitors a chance to stroll among greenery and learn more about the native wildlife and vegetation. Recent visitors said you are virtually guaranteed to see the many iguana inhabitants with ease.
You can access the boardwalk from two points: the north and south. Little Water Cay is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. There are three levels of admission to the reserve. There's an entry fee of $10 per person, which includes admission to the visitor center, nature trail and a guided tour. A $15 ticket includes admission to the visitor center, nature trail, guided tour, plus use of the extended trail across the nature reserve; and a $5 fee allows admission to Half Moon Bay.
