French Cay

French Cay is found in the Caicos Bank, straight south from Provo and southeast of West Caicos, all alone in the middle of the blue. In the 17th century the island served as a hideout for a brigand of the sea, Nau L'Ollonois, who ambushed and captured passing sailing vessels.


An old pirate lair, now uninhabited, with exceptional marine life. It has been designated a sanctuary for frigate birds, osprey and nesting seabirds. The bird population more than doubles each spring as hatchlings are taught to fly. Nurse sharks mate in the shallow waters just off shore each summer. Fast, modern boats shuttle divers from resort docks to the sites of West Caicos and Northwest Point in 45 minutes to an hour. Weather permitting, you can take advantage of trips to more remote French Cay.
