Welcome to Salt Cay
If you can’t quite envision what the Turks would have been like in the 19th century, take a trip to Salt Cay. It's the sort of hideaway that you search your whole life to discover. But while the land is quiet, the sea surrounding the island is awash with life: turtles, eagle rays and the majestic humpback whale all frequent the waters. Hard to get to and even harder to leave, this place is a true haven for scuba divers and for those seeking an escape from the modern world. The large salina (salt pan) and roaming wild donkeys are reminders of the salt trade, the island's principal industry from the mid-17th century until the 1930s.
