We went twice during our stay in North Caicos. The pond is huge with shrubs and trees. Flamingo Pond is famous for sighting thousands of flamingos. Unfortunately we didn’t see any. We could have been there at the wrong time of the year? If you plan to visit, make sure to bring binoculars...maybe you’ll see them. There’s an empty building beside the lookout. Looks like it was once an information centre with bathrooms. I wish it would get cleaned...and I regretted going inside.

We stopped to check it out but the flamingos weren’t cooperating ;). Make sure you have binoculars because the view point is a ways from the water. The plus side is it’s close to the road so if it’s a bust, you can just take off again.

A great spot to see wild flamingos in a natural reserve. Yes, it's just a little stand that you can climb up on to look over the bushes, and you overlook a pond probably a half mile from the stand to the back, and maybe two miles wide. With binoculars we got a good look at a large flock of flamingos (perhaps 200), but they are quite distant, so photos, even with a telephoto lens would not be possible - on this day. If the birds were at the near side of the pond, you would get a super view and photos would be possible.
That's birding...I loved it!

Flamingos are pretty far away but still fun to kill some time. Don't expect a close encounter and enjoy.

The signage was not very good, we drove past it a few times before realizing where it was. It's literally a wood deck you can stand on and look out. We couldn't see any flamingos but also did not have any binoculars.
