About Salt Cay

Salt Cay is a tiny island (3 square miles) in the Turks & Caicos Islands which is at the southeast end of the Bahaman Archipelago.
 

Salt Cay Airport
Latitude N 2120'    Longitude W 7112'

 

Island Climate
Salt Cay is mostly flat and arid. Average temperature is 83 degrees year-round and there are often trade winds, which make the place pleasant and keep away insects. Bring the sunscreen but inspects and mosquitoes are rarely in evidence.
 

Getting to Salt Cay:
Flights into Providenciales, the major airport in the Turks and Caicos are available from Miami, Boston, Charlotte, Atlanta, New York City, London and other major cities throughout the world. Check your favorite airline or air travel website for flights.

Once on Provo (island speak for the island of Providenciales) there is a 25 minutes flight to Salt Cay. We can help you with scheduling this flight when you make your reservation.

Salt Cay airport cannot be reached at night so an early arrival in Provo is recommended. The last flight to Salt Cay is scheduled for 4:00 pm. There are weight restrictions, enforcement appears to be becoming more routine. If you are bringing scuba gear and food, you will almost certainly be over. Budget an additional 50-100 lbs. For groups of four or more it may be more economical to charter a plane.

There are also some flights into Grand Turk on commercial airlines. There is a ferry that (sometimes) operates on Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the afternoon.

 

Eats and Treats:
Salt Cay is remote. There are a few stores which carry the basics. You can find delicious homemade bread; flan and fresh fish can usually be had with a trip to Deanne's Dock.

 

The kitchen at The Vistas is well furnished and we try to provide a good supply of basic items such as spices, flour, oil and such. We do our best but can't guarantee what will be available. You can order food and beverage items that will be procured from Grand Turk prior to your arrival, and food can be brought with you. Coolers are permitted on airlines but no dry ice. (There are weight restrictions on the flights to Salt Cay "see Getting There").

 

There are several restaurants on this island and we can highly recommend Coral Reef Bar & Grill.
