Short boat trip from the main island, met by the National Trust guide who explained everything you need to know about the iguanas. Quote "south side iguanas will run away but the north side of the island, they are very friendly".

We loved this beach even more than Grace Bay; the waters were as crystal clear and the sands powder soft, but so much quieter and less crowded. It was also super fun to see the iguanas on the island! We stopped here as part of our half day snorkel tour with Island Vibes.

While you are visiting Turk and Caicos, you must take a boat ride to this deserted island! I loved it!

Rented Kayaks with Big Blue Unlimited and paddled across to little water cay to visit the iguanas. Fabulous afternoon completed with a walk to Half Moon Bay while searing out Iguanas.

This is a very nice attraction to see and the Iguana's just stand really still to see you. You can only get here by boat and there are different tours to do and not very expensive.
