The last in the string of small islands between Provo and North Caicos is Parrot Cay, once a hideout for pirate Calico Jack Rackham and his lady cohorts Mary Read and Anne Bonny. The 1,000-acre cay, between Fort George Cay and North Caicos, is now the site of an ultra-exclusive hideaway resort. Originally called Pirate Cay (because of the Spanish galleon treasures believed to be buried somewhere on the island), the name was changed to Parrot Cay when the resort was built, to rid itself of the somewhat negative connotations.
Non-hotel guests may dine at the resort. Reservations are mandatory and may not be available during the busy periods, but if you go, it will be a memorable experience. While there, you may want to join one of their classes, enjoy one of the many amazing treatments at their world-class spa, or take a dip in the infinity pool.
