The Island That Time Forgot
Salt Cay is truly an example of an ‘island time forgot’. Donkeys, the ancestors of which use to pull carts for salt production, now roam freely all over the island. There are no paved roads and very few cars. Remnants of the salt salinas and windmill foundations remain. The island is currently home to about 100 people.

Much of the old colonial architecture remains around Balfour Town and the Deane’s Dock area, including the Harriott White House, which is one of the island’s icons.
Salt Cay is an excellent location for both diving and whale watching. Recent campaigns have succeeded in getting Salt Cay nominated to be a UNESCO World Heritage site, which would make it the only such site in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
