caves in middle caicos


Cave Exploration:

Also found on Middle Caicos are Conch Bar Caves, some of the large aboveground limestone cave systems in the Caribbean region, used by the Lucayan Indians dating back to the 1400s! Some have lagoons and stalactites and stalagmites and most have colonies of bats. It is believed that the Lucyans used the caves as places of worship as well as sh elter during hurricanes.

lighthouse


The Lighthouse:

Found on the northern tip of Grand Turk, the country's capitol, the lighthouse is a national landmark. It was re-built in 1852 after being brought over from the United Kingdom piece by piece. At its feet is a picnic area and a prime spot for whale watching during some winter months. The lighthouse looks over the shores of what a number of historians say could be the very land described by Christopher Columbus as one of his first stops in 1492.

iguana


Iguana Island:

Also known as Little Water Cay, you'll stroll along raised boardwalks to see rare Rock Iguanas in their natural habitat. Only 15 minutes away from the Leeward area of Providenciales, it is the only place in the world where 2000 of these large, harmless, shy reptiles live, basking in the sun, absorbing the warmth of the rocks for which they are named.
