Middle Caicos

Description: Middle Caicos is the largest island in the Turks and Caicos group, occupying a land area of 125 square kilometers. The coastline around Middle Caicos is dramatic, with limestone cliffs and long sandy beaches to the north, while the south is dominated by swampland and tidal flats which covers almost half the island. Middle Caicos has the largest cave in all Turks and Caicos at Conch Bar.
