If you had to choose just one white-sand beach to leave your footprints on when visiting North Caicos, make it beautiful Whitby Beach.
Whitby’s mix of soft white sand and clear turquoise water makes it ideal for snorkeling, sunbathing and relaxing.
Expats build their houses at Whitby, drawn by the location’s sheer perfection, and low-key development is starting to turn up the heat a little. There’s still little here than the sand and the sea though, and it’s the ideal spot to rent a tranquil self-contained beach house or villa, not far from the snorkeling mecca of Three Mary’s Cays.
Stretching for 11km (7 miles), Whitby Beach is on the central north coast of the island of North Caicos.
