North Caicos

North Caicos is known as the Green Island.Nicknamed “The Green Island,” North Caicos is home to most of the country’s agricultural operations.

 

41 square miles

 

Historically the farming centre of the Turks and Caicos, the second largest inhabited island is evolving into a tourist friendly scene.

Known for its lush vegetation and abundant wildlife, North Caicos is an easily accessible island with a number of natural attractions such as its many nature reserves and flocks of pink flamingos. The local culture is also present, with craft markets and a history of building sloops, small boats that once ferried produce to the other islands.

With luxury properties under way and the same white sandy beaches that neighbouring island Providenciales is known for, North Caicos is on its way to becoming a quieter, greener tourist attraction.
