Great Stirrup Cay, Berry Islands

#1 of 147 in Outdoors in Out Islands
Head to Great Stirrup Cay, an island owned and managed by a cruise ship company. Offering an uninhabited tropical island experience, the island can only be visited by passengers on Norwegian Cruise Line trips. Relax on the unspoiled white sandy beaches, resting under the shade of the abundant coconut palms, before heading out into the water to explore the surrounding coral reefs. Home to lizards, gulls, and land crabs, the island offers great nature trails, as well as a welcome number of interesting cultural sites. Once a pirate hideout, the island was used by the United States Air Force during the war and still has a helipad in place, as well as a lighthouse dating back to 1863.
