A retaining wall hand made with conch shells. A wild donkey gazing out to a turquoise coloured sea. Sun faded whitewash on historic buildings. Fishing boats neatly aligned at the dock.

This is Cockburn Harbour, a sleepy community of approximately 500 residents on the eight-square mile island of South Caicos that was at one time a vibrant economic centre and remains an alluring place to escape the rigors of daily life and explore some interesting aspects of the history of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Starfish are sometimes known to represent the Virgin Mary as “Stars of the Sea” – marine animals who guide and protect those who are traveling in troubled waters. This folklore likely evolved from their vibrant red colour that provide visible underwater beacons.

Sports At East Bay Resort

Tennis Courts At Essast Bay Resort South Caicos Island

Since the 12th century in France when tennis – or Jeu de Paume as the game was called – was first played with bare hands instead of racquets, the sport has served as a popular way to stay fit, be social and have fun. These objectives are akin to the vacation experience that East Bay Resort delivers to guests – fun, fitness and spending quality time with old and new friends alike.

Here are five ways you can stay fit on your next South Caicos vacation whilst having fun and being social. Best of all, these activities are free!

  1. All suites are beachfront and offer fabulous ocean views. No other resort in Turks and Caicos offers beachfront resorts of our quality at such a competitive price.

  2. East Bay Beach is located in a national marine park and a reef-protected bay, offering premium beach and swimming conditions and marine sport opportunities. Our often-deserted, 1.5 mile long beach offers the same white sand and gin clear waters as world acclaimed Grace Bay Beach – just without the crowds.

The White Sand Beaches Of South Caicos

South Caicos Beaches

Turks and Caicos beaches are truly some of the best in the Caribbean. Indeed, few other places in the world can boast sand as white as what is found in Turks and Caicos. The stunning contrast of long stretches of sugar white sand against a brilliant turquoise coloured sea has captivated all who visit the islands in the prestigious British Overseas Territory.

Abandoned – Uninhibited, unrestrained.

An appropriate definition for the beaches and marine world surround East Bay Resort on South Caicos in Turks and Caicos Islands, they are so pristine and largely unexplored. This is truly a place where you may spend an entire day and see only your footsteps in the sand, and where the only sound of a paddle in the water will be yours.
