Sapodilla Bay Rock Carvings

On Providenciales’ southern coast, follow the rocky trail winding uphill east of the ruined Mariner Hotel and you’ll come across rock carvings dating back to the early 1800s.

It’s thought the carvings were made by shipwrecked sailors as they looked out to sea, hoping to be rescued. The intricately carved lettering incised into the rocks atop the hilltop records the dates of the sailors’ enforced stay on the island.

Climb to the top of this rocky hilltop and you’ll also be rewarded by panoramic vistas over the island and neighboring Chalk Sound National Park.

Practical Info

The Sapodilla Bay Rock Carvings can be found on a rocky hilltop at the far eastern end of the Sapodilla Bay peninsula on the Caicos Island of Providenciales.

To get there, follow a rocky trail beginning a little east of the abandoned Mariner Hotel in the south of the island near Chalk Sound National Park.
