Island Nature / Park
Take a boat to Crab Cay and spend some time swimming in its clear turquoise waters. The small 2 hectare (5 acre) island has little besides palms and coconut trees, crabs, and some lizards. Sunbathe and take a dip, or consider snorkeling among the patches of coral to see colorful reefs and numerous fish species. Climb to the top of the cay for panoramic views of the blue Caribbean waters or relax in the shade with a delicious coconut drink. Bring your camera to capture this picturesque spot.
