We went to Prickly Pear Cay with Capt. Rollins on Chocolat. We snorkeled and hung out for hours and it was one of the best beach days of my life. Fantastic drinks at the beach bar and the food was delicious!

At Prickly Pear Bar and restaurant there is An excellent bar and genius barman and owner Allan. The food at the restaurant is tasty and cooked to perfection by the local team. The local fish is very fresh and... More

I have visited Prickly Pear twice. Once was during an excursion from my hotel in St. Maarten, the second was during a yacht ride from Anguilla. I don't know if there are hotel accommodations on this small island but people dock there to have lunch, snorkel, relax and pass time. The water is warm, clear not really deep but deep... More

Amazing food! This was our 3rd time to the island. The restaurant is only open on certain days so make sure to verify that ahead of time. The food is amazing & the offer generous portions!

We went on an excursion and we had a blast. Best beaches ever with amazing sandy beaches. Good snorkeling. You have to charter a boat to go there though.

We moored our boat off Prickly Pear Cay and honestly just expected to lay on a beach and do some snorkeling. We were quite shocked to find a nice little beach bar and phenomenal food out there. Allan is a very funny man and has the best job ever. He's also very fair with his prices considering he's literally the... More

Lobster was pulled from the ocean alive, fresh lobster without a doubt, portions we huge. They also had a nice veggie plate,... More

Besides the staff, we were the only ones at Prickly Pear first thing in the morning. Really enjoyed sitting at the little bar hut and visiting with Alan. We had a delicious lobster lunch, wandered around and did a bit of snorkeling. A very unique experience I won't soon forget.

Loved Prickly Pear when we came with a tour. There's 2 restaurants and bars on the island and lots of room to wander around the beach exploring. Beautiful place and would recommend it.
