Ambergris Cay (also known as Big Ambergris Cay) is an exquisite private Island located on the remote south-eastern edge of the Caicos Islands archipelago in the Turks and Caicos. The island has a land mass of about 1000 acres (404hectares). The closest populated island to Ambergris Cay is South Caicos, which is found about 14 miles to the north. Ambergris Cay is lightly developed, and supports luxury vacation homes, an airport, and the all-inclusive and upscale Ambergris Cay Resort, which offers beautiful villa accommodations with impeccable service, dining, and amenities. The resort features a low-density design, with the restaurant, spa, and other facilities hidden across the flowing coastline on the west side of the island. Small roads connect the island, and silent golf carts are the main means of transport. The Ambergris Cays are named after the valuable deposits of whale ambergris that would wash up on the beaches. This waxy substance is regurgitated by sperm whales and is prized as a fixative tor perfume and cosmetic products.
As an isolated private island, there are no scheduled domestic flights or ferries between Ambergris Cay and any other island in the Turks and Caicos. The Turks and Caicos Collection operates two aircraft to shuttle guests from a private FBO on Providenciales to Ambergris Cay. The island has an airport (ICAO:MBAC) a 5700 foot (1737m) surfaced runway, and one of the nicest airport terminals in the country. At this time, Turks and Caicos Collection only arranges transport for guests and owners staying on the island, or those interested in purchasing real estate. Ever dreamed of escaping to a privately-owned island in the Caribbean? Incredibly, there’s a widely unknown, hidden gem in the southeastern portion of the Turks & Caicos island chain. Called Ambergris Cay, it is a private island that offers such an exclusive and private experience for its guests that few people even know it exists.
Ambergris Cay offers a very picturesque range of terrains and vegetation. Being located on the eastern edge of the Caicos Banks, there’s a breath-taking contrast between the deep blue water of the Turk’s Islands Passage to the east of the cay, and the shallow and vibrant turquoise waters to the west. Ambergris Cay is highly-important as a reserve for several endangered species, some of which are only found in the Turks and Caicos. Like many of the windward islands in the Turks and Caicos, much of Ambergris Cay consists of rolling dunes and bluffs of semi-lithified limestone and sand. There are many small benches hidden between the dunes and coastal cliffs, which offer widely varying atmospheres. Much of the vegetation on Ambergris Cay is either stunted tropical dry forest that’s common to the Turks and Caicos, or light coastal plant on the windward coasts. The highest point on Ambergris Cay is 96 feet (29m). Two natural icons of the Turks and Caicos thrive on Big Ambergris Cay: the Turks and Caicos Islands rock iguana, and the Turks head cacti.
