My wife and I spent 5 fabulous days on South Caicos staying at the new Sailrock Resort. We toured town by bike, saw the flamingos and enjoed the gorgeous empty beach. Perfect place to get away from busy Provo for a few days. Highly recommended!

He was so friendly and lovely to... More

This island offers friendly people, safety, with absolutely the most beautiful white powdery sand and crystal clear water. It reminds me of Providenciales about 20 years ago before there were so many large resorts built.

Francisco was amazing! He made my Mom and I feel extremely comfortable as first time divers. We felt safe and prepared while we glided past groups of Barracuda, sting rays and an assortment of fish. We had a great first experience. There is also opportunity to get your divers certification. Overall, South Caicos is the most relaxing and quiet island... More

White sand, private beaches that you can walk around. Short distance to the reef and excellent diving.

South Caicos is quickly coming into it's own. After many years of planning and developing the island is about to enjoy a revival back to the days when it was "The Big South". This is an update from an earlier review and I felt it was prudent to share everything going on. East Bay Resort opened back in January of... More
