  • Prickly Pear Island is a tiny island off the northern coastline of Antigua, The island is visible from the North Shore Residence, The jabberwock Beach and other areas along the northern coastline. The tint island is mainly accessed by sea and there are arranged day tours to the island. The main features to the island are the exclusive isolated beach, the snorkeling and total adventure aspect. The views of and from the island are quite spectacular and well worth the trip. I love to point out to people who will listen that the island has a website . The island is an integral part of the seascape in the northern regions of Antigua and Barbuda and an important point of interest.
  • Very wonderful private beach island. So peaceful and colourful
  • Great beach quick boat ride all you can eat and drink
  • Great day on a brilliant little spot.
  • The smallest island I have ever been to. This place is beautiful and relaxing. I have been there twice. Once with a couple of friends for a chilling day and the other time I have been to an organized party and it was amazing!! Nice to get there windsurfing.
