Trip Planner:   Caribbean  /  Anguilla  /  Prickly Pear Cays

Prickly Pear Cays, Anguilla

4.5
#9 of 13 in Parks in Anguilla
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. Before you visit Long Bay Village, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
