Were here on a catamaran trip. All the boats arrive in the same bay, so it will soon be crowded. Better to have an own boat and find a silent spot. The sand is amazing!

Great lunch and snorkeling! Came out here with Shoal Bay Scuba and had a wonderful day. The lunch was really quite good and the portions were large. Wonderful day at Prickly Pear.

Took Gotcha, arrived early enough that we beat the catamarans from St. Martin and scored the chairs under the thatched umbrellas.

The highlight of my visit to beautiful Anguilla was my excursion to Prickley Pear with Mr. Johnno as guide, chef, and general host extraordinaire.

Great food, relaxing getaway. Clear seas white beach can't ask for anything more. Allan is the bar man never met a more genuine person and his drinks the best - coldest beer for at least 6 miles.

Saturday & Sunday are the days to come here for lobster lunch, drinks and the beach. One can make a complete afternoon of this. Its a little on the pricy side but well worth it

Stopped to snorkel on the way to Anguilla. That day the current was strong but manageable to swim. It was deep but sunny so the water was clear and could see the bottom. Had so much fun in the water that didn't even bother to go by the reef.
