We stopped here on our Island Vibes Tour. The beach was beautiful! You can walk to both sides of the island to check out the different waters. We saw iguanas and there was a sting ray in the water. Bring your flip flops as some of the wadding pool has little rocks and pebbles.

This was an awesome experience. We saw a lot of iguanas. I mean a lot! Big an small all around us. We did this through Caribbean cruisin. $45 per person. Was definitely worth it. Take the unlimited time tour and walk to the beach at the end of the trail. It is one of the most beautiful beaches we have... More

Well, I haven't been to every beach in TCI, but the north beach on Little Water Cay was amazing. We actually didn't see many iguanas, but we were there during the middle of the hot day. There were not many people there for most of our brief stay, but it appears that many of the boat trips stop here. It... More

the main attraction are the iguanas that are endemic to this island. i guess that's the sole attraction. that said, it was pretty neat. they are pretty fearless and you can approach them pretty easily. don't feed or chase them, that's bad juju.

This is such a unique island that any visitor to Provo should try and stop by to see the iguanas that inhabit it. It's fascinating to see and hear about how iguanas have survived on this island because it's the only island without numerous predators like dogs and cats. The iguanas will come right up to you expecting to be... More

We visited Little Water Cay while on a Island Vibe boat excursion. It is also know as Iguana Island (although we didn't see one iguana). It is the most stunningly beautiful beach and I would highly recommend finding a way to get there. It is uninhabited, unspoiled and absolutely gorgeous. A must see!

Things you should know: 1. Bring plenty of sunscreen, there is no shade on any of the beaches. 2. Bring shoes as there can be a bit of a hike. 3. If you kayak it can be a bit of a workout going against the current/wind and getting back after a full day. Plus if you are there at low... More

This was fantastic! My fiancé and I honestly could've stayed here all day!!! The boat ride to the island was fairly quick. We used Caribbean cruises (I think!!!). Had we really known what we were getting ourselves into, we would've packed lunches and more water. Walking through the island to get to the private beach and trying to spot the... More

We took a tour that included this island. The remote corners were breathtaking, but the mini hike would have been better if we knew to bring shoes. Lots of little burs will stick your feet without them! Look for the iguanas by the picnic table. They hang out there waiting for tourists to feed them. Not a natural setting for... More

We went to Little Water Clay as part of an excursion we signed up for and found this to be a fun little stop. They have about 6000 iguanas on the island and they don't seem to mind tourists. My son is 11 and loves iguanas so this was a trip highlight for him.
