East Caicos is an uninhabited, 18 square mile island featuring swamps, mangroves and Flamingo Hill – the highest point in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The splendid 17 mile beach on the north coast of the island is a popular site for sea turtles. Divers delight in discovering the coral reefs and exploring Goose Hill Creek and Drum Point. The island attracts visitors, led by experienced local guides, for kayaking, fishing and bird watching. East Caicos also features a series of caves to explore and petroglyphs show evidence of early settlers on the island.
