When you are visiting Providenciales you MUST take the ferry to North Caicos, hire a car and just head off into North and Middle Caicos to explore these very different islands. We did exactly this and when we arrived at the North Caicos landing point a nice red Jeep was waiting for us, ably arranged by the Ferry operator. We headed for the furthest point first, stopping to fuel on the way - we put in $30, but only needed to have put in $20 - Pelican key and then made our way back to the Conch Bar Caves which seem to get plenty of write-up when reading about Middle Caicos. They are not sign-posted and you think you are going to end up on the island airstrip before you travel along 1km or so of rough road before you come to a locked gate....what then? I think there was a number on the gate, but we were tight on time and didn't want to waste any waiting for the "man-with-the-key" to turn up, so we headed back along the track. About half way along we were waved down by a car heading towards the cave and asked if we wanted to enter - $30 per head or $120 for two adults and are two adult teenagers.... we declined!
But the excellent North and Middle Caicos map showed us another option just up the road - Indian cave. It is well signposted, right on the main road as you are heading back to North Caicos, fairly spectacular, full of mosquitoes and absolutely free!
We did not enter the Conch Bar Caves, but we did see the locked gate and at the end of the day we saw some caves and then spent an hour or so at the wonderful Mudjin Harbour where the swimming is excellent and there is also a secret path that disappears into the ground and appears in a cliff bound beach. Great!
