A nature park where iguanas roam. People are only allowed on certain hours of the day...the rest...to iguanas.

We were able to visit Little Water Cay twice during our trip since it is only accessible by water. Interesting island with lots of rock iguanas and one of the prettiest beaches (half moon bay) that we saw in TCI.

There was a ton of garbage on this island, which made me sad. Do not walk across without shoes, unless you have super tough feet, there are thorns etc that you will pick up without knowing. Large iguanas are hiding all over.

Beautiful reefs and worth it if you are into snorkeling or diving. Visit iguana island too, it's nice.

Great excursion especially for kids. Caribbean Cruisin out of Blue Haven resort has daily trips to the island. Really only need about an hour there to see the Iguanas but you can also swim or snorkel for an hour as well. The water around the park area is lovely.

The island is wonderful, absolutely cannot me missed. Rent a kayak at big blue, and paddle out. Great snorkeling, saw tons of different fish, including puffed and cuttlefish, also saw sea turtles. Sadly, found someone's fully used disposable waterproof camera (on sept 16th)if you think it's yours, send me a message and I'll gladly mail it off

Took a boat from Blue Haven Marina with Caribbean Cruisin to get out to this wonderful sanctuary. In fact our guide Alex came out on the boat with us. We were all very impressed and felt this was one of the most interesting parts of our trip. We were sort of expecting a less natural setting - you know this... More

Little Water Cay is a small island off of Provo, is protected under the National Trust. There are several local guides who can take you there, you will see the TCI Rock iguana along the numerous trails that traverse the Cay. A must do.

You will need to take a charter boat (I'd recommend Barefoot Custom Charters) to get here but it's worth it. A beautiful deserted cay very close to Provo.

We took kayaks from Big Blue to visit Little Water Cay. It was a bit of a paddle but we found beaches that we had all to ourselves for hours. If your not much of a paddler you can also take the 1/2 day snorkel tours, though you then do not have the beach to yourself.
