Salt Cay was first visited by Bermudans in 1645. Ever since then, Salt Cay has been dominated by Bermudan salt traders, specifically the Herriot family whose White House, has been a Salt Cay landmark since the early 1800's.
Salt Cay is a tranquil and charming island offering complete relaxation. This tiny island possesses quiet bays with several long stretches of beautiful white sand beaches excellent for swimming, snorkeling and beach combing. There are few cars on the island, most of the transportation is via golf cart, bicycle, boat or foot. Horses run freely along with donkeys, cows and chickens - it is customary to give them the right-of-way should you meet them on the road, as is customary to wave and smile when passing the islanders.
Getting to Salt Cay is typically via the local airlines departing from the international airport in Providenciales or Grand Turk, either scheduled or chartered. There is also a ferry that runs between Grand Turk and Salt Cay on a biweekly schedule.
