Protestant Cay, Christiansted

(4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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. Don't fret if you're not staying on the island's tranquil resort, as the restaurant and beach are open for public use.

  • Go out at boardwalken in Christiansted, there you will quickly pass a small ferry to the Protestant Cay. It costs only $5 return to get more. The beach is wonderful with the clear water and the beautiful palm trees, just as we want it in the Caribbean. There is a reasonable dining restaurant on the island, so you can easily get a day to go with sun exposure over there.
