Part of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Parrot Cay sits on its own private Island surrounded by 1000 acres of unspoilt pristine land, offering complete serenity with breathtaking beaches and an exquisite coral reef to match. Parrot Cay was named around 280 years ago by two female pirates, Anne Bonny and Mary Reid, who terrorised this area. In the late 19th century an American firm planted citrus and coconut trees but tourism came much later, so the Island has been able to avoid mass construction common to other Caribbean Islands. Between January and April, humpback whales migrate to the south east of the Islands of Turks and Caicos. Of the 40 Turks and Caicos Islands and Cays, only 8 are inhabited and are now protected, providing a perfect habitat for wildlife and offering some of the world’s best diving.
