Salt Cay is incredible. We arrived at the end of the season in May and were two of six tourists on the Cay. We rented a golf cart, which is not necessary is you want to just hang out near your rental, but we wanted to go all over. We were the only two people on beaches that stretched on.... More

This is one of the best places to relax in the world. Quaint moderate accommodations but the beach and people on the island make up for that. Porters island Thyme is the best and the cleanest place to eat. Pats is really good to. Salt cay divers is the place to book your diving. Night life at porters is the... More

Quiet. Isolated. Peaceful. Friendly. If you like the Ritz and that level of service, this will not be for you. We had a wonderful week.

Great way to go zen and learn to do one thing at a time again. Really slow down and enjoy each person you meet or each moment with nature! Beautiful. Historic . Unique. Off the beaten path.

Salt Cay is a hideaway from the world. When visiting, it's not so much as escaping, to returning to a home that feels as if you've always known it. Meeting people on the island is like seeing old friends. GO!

This is a small island with few people. We stayed at the Compass Rose house (very nice). There is little to no shopping but both Debbie's restraunt, Island Thyme, and Mrs. Pat's place have wonderful food. Beautiful Beaches, great diving!!

My family just returned from a vacation in Salt Cay. We were celebrating our daughter's high school and college graduations. My 18-year old had scuba diving on her bucket list so we booked a resort dive with Richard who is the Dive Master at SCD. It was the experience of a lifetime for her and she plans to continue on...

As much as we wanted to love this place in the end we just couldn't. It's quiet, remote, with a few cool places to visit - everything we were looking for. The other main reason we came here was to see Humpback whales during which it was the height of their mitigatory season. But the wind blew like crazy for... More

Let me 1st start by saying I can't write enough about this tiny remote island here in a review to do it justice. My husband and I spent our 1st week of vacation on Provo and decided to hop over to Salt Cay in hopes of seeing and swimming with humpback whales. Well, this leg of our trip turned out... More

From January to March, it is the humpback whale season! I was luck to be at Salt Cay on March 2014! My last review of Salt Cay was based on my experience of Salt Cay during July 2013. Since Salt Cay is very different during winter (peak season because of the whales) and summer (slow season), I hope this new... More
