Beautiful by Nature, Middle Caicos, Turks and Caicos Islands.
Now, this is something I can get used to and just how I like to spend my Easter day. If you haven’t quite gotten around to visiting the Turks and Caicos Islands, then this piece just might get you closer. Today I’m exploring Middle Caicos – the largest island that makes up the group of Turks and Caicos Islands and the one that cultivates the most diverse cave adventures and archaeological discoveries. Yes, I am beyond excited to be part of this.
So with a deep breath lets go on this most amazing adventure, let’s get lost over and over again then find ourselves by the end of it all.
I marvelled in excitement as we drove before the causeway of North Caicos into the Majesty of Middle Caicos. The island is known for its rich history of the Lucayan Indian settlements by evident archaeological sites – the first island inhabitants before Columbus and an extensive number of hidden caves which I got to experience first-hand as I ventured through a hidden ‘pirates cave.’ -A novel experience to be tracing the footsteps of Middle Caicos history.
The landscape throughout is richly green with points of cactus and breathtaking ocean boulders creating a fury of surfer waves. The dense population truly makes for a castaway experience. Its secludedness is also a haven for the seasonal vacation home residents.
It is my ultimate pick for adventure and rich history. My adventure would take me to Mudjin Harbour home to deep sea sunken boulders, hidden limestone caves and the spectacular ‘Dragons ‘formation’ Cay’ which is great for snorkelling on calmer sea days. When I had had enough sea soaking on the incredible stretch of Mudjin Harbour beach – I sat over a cold Corona overlooking the deep blue mist at a great little restaurant within the popular Blue Horizon Resort. The resort sits on an awesome hiking trail leading into a hidden cave way with picturesque views from every angle. Steep stairs and dark slippery sand-stoned corners that leads the way through limestone ceilings right out and through a breathtaking boulder archway into a small beachfront of rough ocean waves.
There’s still much to see and do in Middle Caicos and you can be sure I’ll be making many trips to get my appetite for travel to this wondrous destination fully filled. But don’t take my word for it, find your own adventure in the heart of Turks and Caicos, Middle Caicos Island.
