Turks and Caicos Largest Cave Network
Book a stay at Turks and Caicos and tour the largest cave network in the Middle Caicos.
The caves on Middle Caicos form the largest cave network in the Bahamian archipelago. These limestone caves are the largest in the Caicos Islands. They continue underground for great distances and some believe there are tunnels that reach the sea. In the 1880’s, the caves were mined for “guano” or bat manure where fertilizer was in great demand.
Evidence of Lucayan habitation was unearthed. These aboriginal people used the caves as places of worship and as shelters during hurricanes. The caving system, for the Lucayans, had religious significance.
