Long Cay, Caicos. 21deg 27’.57N – 71deg 34’.45W as at 08.04.20
Suitably named long cay just south of Cockburn Harbour on South Caicos.
a. Several marked on the chart at the southern end but suggest the “Sand Hole” anchorage is too close in; but could be good for snorkelling from a dinghy tied to the buoy that appears to be placed there.
b. Other marked anchorages are over clear sand with good holding albeit further from the shore.
c. Be aware of a current flowing through the gap off the southern end of the island and curling around through the anchorage.
d. Well sheltered from North through East.
a. Several good landing beaches and plenty of wildlife including Osprey, Pelican, Frigate birds, iguana with variety plant and shrub cover.
b. Apparently good walking on the island with warning not to walk too close to the crumbling cliff edges and to look out for Iguana burrows as standing on them can twist an ankle and ruin a burrow!
