This is the perfect place for an Island like Salt Cay. The owners are very gracious hosts. The atmosphere is fun and light while the food offerings are diversified and well prepared. After many visits you will return over and over seeing many people who will become friends.

Friendly ambience, lively conversation and excellent food. We arrived soaking wet from a sudden heavy downfall after riding bikes from Castaway on North Beach to visit new friends in the South District, then on to Porter's Island Thyme. Haidee and Porter gave us towels to dry off and new t-shirts to wear. We had a delicious dinner and fun meeting... More

Our TEAM is delighted you enjoyed your Island Thyme experience! As you noted the Turks & Caicos is not an inexpensive destination. Eeverything is imported and Custom's Duty in the TCI is significant. The costs on the smaller more remote islands, lilke Salt Cay, is even higher as everything goes through multiple hands to get to isalnd. Regardless we strive... More
