East Caicos

This uninhabited, 18-square mile island was once home to a bustling sisal industry in the late 19th century. Now guarded by feral donkeys, plantation ruins, a graveyard and even remnants of a railway line are the only indicators now of a bygone era. Covered in swamp and mangroves, the island is surrounded by beautiful and yet dangerous reefs, making visits only advisable with an experienced local captain. Ponds and lakes on the island are inhabited by flamingos, ducks and pigeons, and where once herds of wild cattle roamed there is nothing left as a result of local hunters. The government of the Turks and Caicos has slated East Caicos as a possible site for future development.
