Prickly Pear Cays Tours

Prickly Pear Cays
The Prickly Pear Cays are a pair of uninhabited island off the coast of Anguilla. The islands are home to unspoiled white sand beaches and little else. Visit for the day to enjoy sunbathing on pristine beaches and snorkeling along coral reefs packed with marine life. 

The Basics
If you’ve ever dreamed of being marooned on a desert island for the day, you can make that dream come true at Prickly Pear Cays—but with a delicious barbecue lunch to keep you from feeling too far from civilization. Guided boat trips head to the islands from St. Maarten and Anguilla on a regular basis. Most tours are full-day trips and include lunch and drinks. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • The Prickly Pear Cays are uninhabited and can only be reached by boat.
  • Snorkeling gear is usually provided on guided trips. 
  • The beaches on the islands do not have much shade, so remember to bring sunscreen and a sunhat.

How to Get There 
The Prickly Pear Cays are located a few miles off the coast of Anguilla. They can be reached by boat from either Anguilla or nearby St. Maarten. Most travelers visit the cays on tours that include lunch and other amenities. 

When to Get There 
The best time to visit Anguilla is from December to May, when you can expect the best weather. Hurricane season runs from June to November, but you can still enjoy sunny days in between storms at this time of year. 

Visit the Anguilla Heritage Museum
For a closer look at the island of Anguilla and its history, visit the island’s Heritage Collection museum in East End Village. The collection includes everything from artefacts that once belonging to the indigenous Arawakan people to exhibits about the 1967 revolution, when Anguilla gained independence from Britain.

GaySail: Gay Sailing Cruise Saint Martin - Saint Barth - AnguillaMulti-day Cruises

GaySail: Gay Sailing Cruise Saint Martin - Saint Barth - Anguilla

Saint Martin is located about 250 km north from Continental Guadeloupe and belongs to the Northern Archipelago. It is the smallest landmass in the world shared by two independent countries. Because of its French and Dutch sides, an interesting dual culture exists on St. Martin. Sophistication and a relaxed, easygoing style are woven into the fabric of daily life on the island. Caribbean and European food, culture, and cuisine come together on St. Martin like no other place in the island chain. With world class restaurants, casual beach bars, legendary and (sometimes infamous) beaches, live music, and a fascinating colonial history, the island gives you a taste of the delightful charms of this region. We make a great combination with the Anguilla with its beautiful nature, beaches and marine parks and the upmarket, sophisticated island of Saint Barth.
