Informality is the watchword. You'll need a hat, sunscreen, your gear, books, bathing suits, shirts and shorts. Bring sturdy shoes and long pants if you plan to hike in the bush. Salt Cay has the least amount of rain, therefore the least amount of bugs of anywhere in the Turks & Caicos Islands. However, it's still a good idea to bring bug spray as it is not sold in the local stores.
We have a few stores on island but they are very basic so yes, you can bring a cooler with cheese, fruits, vegetables and meats - just tell customs it's for personal use!
We have no ATMs or banks, you will need to bring cash for small purchases in the local stores. Some restaurants and bars accept Visa and MasterCard but cash is preferred.
Yes! Our own Coral Reef Bar & Grill is right next Salt Cay Divers. We serve a variety of island and healthy foods in a casual, scenic setting.
