Dellis Cay is a 560 acre private island located in the string of cays between Providenciales and North Caicos. A narrow channel separates the island from Parrot and Fort George Cay.
In July 2022 Dellis Cay was purchased by the owners and developers of the Ritz-Carlton Turks & Caicos.
This tiny island was named after the Greek expert skin-diver, John Dellis. He moved to the Turks & Caicos Islands with his family to begin the sponging industry in the country. The trade thrived until the late 19th century. Initially, the sponges were harvested directly from the reefs surrounding the Caicos Islands, dried and exported. Sadly, they were overfished and became depleted within decades.
Dellis Cay is now a popular day-trip (20 minutes by boat from Provo) for avid shell collectors and beach lovers. A beautiful white sandy beach wraps around the northwestern point. It’s considered one of the best spots in the Turks & Caicos for rare and beautiful shells.
The Dellis Cay project will commence in late 2024 and bring a high-end hotel brand to the island. Many of the current unfinished beachfront estates will also be completed.
The new owners are excited to begin construction and development soon, contact us for more details on this exciting new project in Turks & Caicos.
