Rocky Cay, San Andres Island

Gaze out over the multicolored waters at Rocky Cay, a small beach in the Caribbean. As you stand on the shore, notice the beach's distinctive shipwreck, close enough to swim to. Bring snorkeling gear to make the most of the colorful marine life swimming through the crystal clear waters, and take a pair of water shoes to protect your feet from the coral poking out of the sea floor. Keep an eye out for iguanas slinking around underneath the palms trees, just waiting to be photographed.

  • The Rocky Island Cay has to walk through the water to get her, little island. Must be less than 300 meters to reach the water must come at some points a maximum of 1.60 but in most places it is shallower, with small children can go and take over the threshold in some parts. I took great shots there, pretty cool! Can you take snorkel and visit the wreckage of a sunken ship on the side of the island (40 m) Worth the walk through the water to visit!

  • Quiet and clean waters. You can walk about 200 m up to a small island where there's a shipwreck you can dive in and explore. The environment of the ship is kind of scary because it is very dark and has many rusty tips but carefully you can see interesting things there. Has a small area which is a fish nursery with many marine species

  • Really nice beach, a lot more chilled out than the one in the centre. The rocks on the little island are super slippery, watch out. Good piece too snorkel.
  • Nice beach to spend the day, the locals are very attentive and the drinks and food is regular priced. The sea isn't so calm and you must be careful while snorkelling around the small island and ship wreckage. I recommend spending at least a couple of hours around there.
  • Nice beach. Better enjoyed with diving shoes and snorkling googles.
  • Small and nice island. Good view from there.
  • Not that great experience in my opinion. There is a wreckage of an old ship.
