Azure waters, sunny skies, and silky white shorelines define the scenery in Anguilla. With 33 beaches to choose from, you are never far from a postcard-perfect beach no matter where you are on the island. Once you’ve explored some of the beautiful beaches on Anguilla’s mainland, you may be ready to head offshore for some island hopping. Head to Prickly Pear Cays for a day of fun under the sun.
On the Cays
It may seem redundant to explore other islands when you are already vacationing on one, but the small islands of Prickly Pear Cays Anguilla are well worth your time and effort. Located approximately six miles offshore from Road Bay, Anguilla, the western cay is a rocky isle popular with nesting birds, while the eastern cay has a long stretch of sand along its northern coast. Booking with one of Anguilla’s boat charters will get you quickly to the beautiful sands of Prickly Pear Beach on the eastern cay.
Head to Prickly Pear Cays for the laid back vibe and the castaway island ambiance. There are no developments here other than the Prickly Pear Bar & Restaurant, where you can enjoy a lunch of items such as fresh mahi mahi, BBQ chicken, or ribs. Take on the leisurely pace of island life as you sip rum punch in this open-air, casual eatery. Following lunch, claim a beach chair and umbrella and let your cares slip away. The water surrounding Prickly Pear Cays beckons swimmers and snorkelers with its aquamarine hue and abundant tropical fish population. There’s nothing like spending a day in the sea, sand, and sun on Prickly Pear Cays!
