Fodor's Expert Review Cottage Pond

North Caicos Nature Sight

A short distance from the North Caicos ferry terminal and en route to where the flamingos rest is Cottage Pond. Watch on the right side of the road, as the sign can be hidden in the foliage. The roadway deteriorates the closer you get, so just park and walk the rest of the way. At the end you'll find this lovely, quiet freshwater pond where slaves would come to wash clothes. Today, there's always an assortment of ducks swimming, with ferns as their backdrop. Local lore has it that the pond has no bottom and a mermaid was once spotted swimming there.
