Prickly Pear, Marigot

(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Take a day trip to Prickly Pear, a pair of remote, uninhabited cays located about 9.7 km (6 mi) from the mainland. Jump off the boat into the turquoise clear water and snorkel among an abundance of marine life, such as butterfly fish, snapper, and grouper. Bask in the sun with a tropical cocktail while your feet brush the soft white sand. Indulge in a traditional Caribbean barbeque of chicken, fish, or ribs, while cute canaries and finches watch on. Have a little siesta under a palm tree before heading back to the mainland. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Prickly Pear by using our Saint-Martin vacation planner.
