What to pack for Salt Cay
Dress code for Salt Cay is barefoot casual - you will feel at ease replacing collared shirts and pantyhose with sunhats, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen. Remember to keep your swim suit covered up whilst not on the boat or in the water, not only because of the strong sun but in respect for the reserved island residents.
Dining on Salt Cay
For an island of little resources from water shortages and spotty telephony you will find dining and drinking on Salt Cay an untouched wonder. Travel through the tastes of Salt Cay from local island dishes such as 'peas & rice', 'steam fish' and 'crack conch', to sophisticated presentations of 'almond encrusted snapper' and 'bananas foster'. When the water runs out, you will still find plenty to drink from Heineken, the favorite island beer, to rum punch and the nefarious 'wolf' and 'monkey', backed by official island legend ....just ask.
