This 10-square mile island has been uninhabited for over a century. A thriving sisal plantation in the late 1800’s, some railroad tracks and ruins of the various industries can still be found in Yankeetown, including old stone buildings.
In keeping with the TCI history, the island has a romantic and rich history of pirates, sisal production, salt raking, fishing and even oil refining.
A natural habitat for a variety of wildlife, you are likely to spot turtles, ospreys and flocks of pink flamingos as you explore West Caicos.
The west coast is testament to the history of this rugged island with rock carvings by shipwrecked sailors and even Lucayan remains.
A marine reserve offers some of the world’s best diving sites, including the West Caicos wall dropping off to a depth of 7,000 feet.
