Beat the crowds and find your own little oasis at Protestant Cay, a tiny 1.6 hectare (4 acre) islet easily reached via a five-minute boat trip from Christiansted. Rent some snorkel gear from the local diving company and enjoy the crystal clear water's diverse marine life and colorful coral reef. Those feeling a little more adventurous can rent one of the kayaks, windsurfers, and sailboats.
