The Wonder and Mystery surrounding Ambergris Cay.
Rich in history, Ambergris Cay has a lot to offer. This 1,100 acre private island is a world of its own. From Providenciales it is a 20-minute jet ride to this stunning private island and residential community. Interestingly enough there are no regularly scheduled flights between the other Turks and Caicos Islands and Ambergris Cay. Why? Well the island has been privately owned since 1811, and was largely abandoned for much of the 1900’s.
The tiny Ambergris Cay sits at the southeast corner of the Turks and Caicos Islands that surrounds the world-famous Caicos Banks, whose shallow turquoise blue waters and surrounding reefs are so brilliant they can be seen from space.
Just east of the island is the Grand Turk Passage that descends to nearly 7,000 ft. with ideal conditions for fishing, whale watching and wall diving. Ambergris Cay is home to a large nature preserve and mangrove lagoons. Varied sea life is abundant, including eagle rays, turtles, dolphins and migrating whales.
A destination for the very wealthy, this private island offers peace and relaxation that is second to none.
