Big Sand Cay

02 July 2007 | Turks and Caicos
Big Sand Cay was once a habitat for the West Indian Monk Seal and the Manatee, the former hunted to extinction and the latter well on its way.Legend has it that Spanish Treasure is buried on the cay and it is claimed that a British Captain Delaney recovered $ 130,000 in pirate treasure from a cave in great sand cay in 1850.
Great Sand Cay is a desert paradise.Iguanas and curly-tailed lizards roam the prickly pear cactus-decorated landscape.Twice a year green and hawksbill tutles nest on the beautiful western beach and nurse sharks gather in the shallow lagoon during their season.
