Time stands still on Salt Cay, the 2.5 square mile island in the Turks Bank, where you will experience an authentic, modest slow place to island life. Arrive on this ‘island that time forgot’ via ferry or airplane and be shuttled around by golf cart. It is easy to get caught up on the allure of the island and fall in love with the charm of Salt Cay.  At every turn there are remnants of the island’s past as the center of the salt industry with the lingering presence of longstanding salinas and preserved Bermudian architecture, there are ample opportunities to get lost in historic significance of the island. The island’s enchanting bed and breakfast style accommodations welcome returning guests year after year. The quaint island has a population of less than 80 residents who are well-known for their kind hospitality and jovial nature.

Salt Cay Highlights

Visit the ruins at Taylor’s Hill and discover one of the most breathtaking views on the island. This is an ideal island for whale watching – and even swimming alongside them - a favorite pastime for visitors during January and April when migrating humpback whales populate the azures off the island. However, giant humpbacks are not the only visitors to the tiny island that you may enjoy watching. South creek is where the pink flamingos are most common and at the south tip of the island watching the waves from the Atlantic and Caribbean smash into each other. Feral donkeys are quite often your companions on there ventures. This quiet and tranquil environment is also a popular rest stop for migrating birds – gaining the approval of avid birdwatchers. Recommended as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Salt Cay (see Wikipedia) has a wealth of authentic island experiences!
