Great for photo opportunities with the iguanas. They let you get super close for photos. Beautiful beaches! Even saw 3, 2 foot sharks close to shore looking for food.

My husband and I went to Little Water Cay yesterday. This small island is well-known for its endemic iguanas. We were not disappointed at all! We saw a lot of iguanas. They were not very afraid of people, so we were able to take some very good pictures very close to them. On this small island, there are beautiful beaches... More

This was a great way to spend an hour whilst in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We took a boat from the Caribbean Cruisin' terminal. I did think $40 per person was a bit steep but hey. It was a pleasant little boat ride and there were loads of iguanas to see. The boatman and the guide on the island... More

Iguana island was not very exciting. While there were a few iguanas, there is virtually nothing else there to see or do. We walked the trail to its end and then had to turn around and walk back. The boat ride over was costly at $40pp/$25child and it took less than five minutes. The TCI ferry staff were not friendly... More

It was fascinating: the iguanas are not shy of people! We saw about 35 iguanas in the short boardwalk trail - in about 20 minutes. But what was even better was the guide: he told us so much about the native flora and fauna, as well as some of the immigrant species, that really helped us understand the islands' biological...

We needed a break from the beach and this place was a spectacular field trip for us with our 4 year old. We took a boat from the Heaving Down Rock marina, through Caribbean Cruisin. They have a web site and you can book there but we just showed up. It was just over $100 for all three of us... More

Tiny little island east of Provo. Known for indigenous iguanas and a beautiful private beach. Went there in October 2013 with Caicos Dream Tours and loved it.

Little Water Cay is the only place you can see the big iguanas, cats and dogs ate all the iguanas on the other islands. We took a twenty minute guided tour and saw at lest two dozen iguanas! The trip is definitely worth it once, but I would not need to go again. The only way to get to the... More

Really small beautiful private beach, with iguanas walking around. We took a boot there, for 40 dollars, try to stay longer then 1 hour, this is to short.

You can take an excursion by a boat to get there or ferry boat and walk. It has a great beach! We had a 4' sting ray come right up to us. Great for swimming. There is no shade though, or food, so be prepared if you want to stay there for a few hours.
