Prickly Pear Cays, Anguilla

(70+ reviews on the web)
Island
A tropical oasis located just 9 km (6 mi) from the Anguillian mainland, Prickly Pear Cays invites you to its crystal clear snorkeling friendly waters and pristine clean white sands. Accessible only by boat, the idyllic location remains popular among snorkelers and swimmers due to the seclusion from the hustle and bustle of major tourism. Go beneath the water and find sea urchins as well as vibrantly colored fish of all sizes. Head to the beach front restaurant and sip on a cool draught beer as you wait for freshly prepared seafood to dine on, taking in views of the Caribbean Sea. Prickly Pear Cays is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Long Bay Village Edition.

  • The feeling you get here is that you've left the world behind. With sugar white beaches, clearest waters and Allan Ruan to talk to to and mix the best drinks I can't think of a more relaxing day.  more »
