[ TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS ] Water Cay, Iguana Islands of TCI


An interesting attraction is the nature reserve of Little Water Cay, locally known as 'Iguana Island'. This small island, or cay, is home to the few remaining Rock Iguanas that used to cover most of the islands in the Turks and Caicos. Water Cay, is one of the island (out of 7) in The Turks and Caicos Islands. TCI are a British Overseas Territory consisting of the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands, two groups of tropical islands in the Lucayan Archipelago, part of the larger Antilles island grouping. They are known primarily for tourism and as an offshore financial centre. The total population is about 31,500, of whom 23,769 live on Providenciales in the Caicos Islands.
The Turks and Caicos Islands lie southeast of Mayaguana in the Bahamas island chain and north of the island of Hispaniola. Cockburn Town, the capital since 1766, is situated on Grand Turk Island about 1,042 kilometres (647 mi) east-southeast of Miami, United States. The islands have a total land area of 430 square kilometres (170 sq mi).[b] They are geographically contiguous with the Bahamas, but are politically separate.
