A Tiny Beach Resort to Discover in Turks and Caicos 

By: Alexander Britell - November 11, 2023

Maybe you’ve been to the sand in Grace Bay, or taken a dive to the undersea wonders of Grand Turk. 

But hidden in the chain of Sister Islands that begin just across the water from the northeastern edge of Providenciales are some full-fledged jewels. 

That includes one of the most beloved places to stay in the entire archipelago: the Dragon Cay resort, the seven-room beach resort set on the spectacular Mudjin Harbour. 

Middle Caicos is the biggest island in the chain, but it’s also the most uncrowded: it’s a haven for beach lovers, explorers and naturalists, a place where you can find the serenity you seek or the adventure you crave. 

Whether you’re smelling the salt air and listening to the waves in the harbor, or kayaking through the mangroves or chasing after bonefish in the flats, it’s your own private adventure resort.

The property is a mix of cottages and villas, ranging from lovely bungalow-style cottages to the three-bedroom Solstice Villa, perfect for groups or family retreats. 

While each of the cottage and villas have their own kitchens, you can happily spend many of your meals at the Mudjin Bar and Grill or venture to the nearby Sea View Cafe in Conch Bar Village.

And at night, you can gaze at the impossibly clear sky and the kinds of constellations you simply won’t see anywhere else. 

This isn’t the Turks and Caicos you know. It’s a destination just begging to be discovered. 

Even better? Dragon Cay is now offering a third night free now through Dec. 15. You can find more at Dragon Cay.
