Gene first sailed through the Turks and
Caicos Islands in 1983, stopping briefly at Salt Cay and falling in love with the tranquility of this unique place.
Kristin and Gene purchased this cottage in 2003
After looking far and wide for a vacation home when we first met, we chose Salt Cay for it's hospitable and tranquil nature.
Complete serenity and an escape to a place where "time stands still"
We had a great stay in this sweet cottage. The Purple Conch has a well equipped kitchen, the appliances all worked, and we were especially glad to have the full sized refrigerator with freezer that were both cold and ready to receive my groceries when we arrived. There were ceiling fans and lots of additional fans to keep us cool when the trade winds waned a bit. The cottage is steps away from the two main eateries on the island and Miss Netty's little store.
A very nice place to stay on this unique island retreat.
The beaches. Above all, the unspoiled beaches are a must!!!
Snorkeling and SCUBA diving. Pristine coral reefs and unspoiled waters surround the island. Diving is just a 5 minute boat ride offshore to the 7,000 foot vertical wall. Whale sharks are known to cruise the waters of the Turks Islands Passage along the wall, relentlessly enchanting divers. Local Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine has rated Salt Cay in the top 100 in the world as 'best wall diving. Salt Cay also ranked in the top 5 in the world under the categories: Top Dive Destination ,Top Macro Life, Top Fish Life, Top Advanced Diving , Healthiest Marine Life and Top Underwater Photography.

Cultural heritage. Salt Cay is a cultural treasure, featuring remnants of the 19th-century salt industry, with its windmills relics, salt sheds and salinas.
Birdwatching. The salt salinas on Salt Cay are host to many native species and, in season, many migratory species. Native and migrating wading and water birds gather in the mangrove and low tidal areas on the south side of the island, inner salinas and the beaches ringing the island.
