This was my first experience at visiting a beach or island that was deserted; except for the Iguanas of course! We saw four of them on our visit. Half Moon Bay was incredible; lots of sponges, sea fans and shells washed up. Highly recommended!!

Little Water Cay (aka Iguana Island) is definitely not-to-miss. You can only get here by boat, and I would suggest the Caicos Dream Tours. The Caribbean side of the island is beautiful, with stunningly shallow waters that are a clear light green. Definitely walk over to the Atlantic side and see Half Moon Bay. This beach rivals the beauty of... More

They are working to make more of your time on this island, but lets be fair. The lizards are endangered and we have to be careful to save them. So just going and seeing one or two, and paying $8.00 makes me feel good as I know the money is going to help save them

I enjoyed the quick tour of the island along with the history and senery. Made a quick stop the first stop while doing a snorkle excursion. Dissapointed that the boat tour guide charged us 8.00 per person, the later reading the magazines that are posted everywhere that it cost 5.00 per person. Just dissappointed that, we pay the high prices... More

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.

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.
