Things you should know: 1. Bring plenty of sunscreen, there is no shade on any of the beaches. 2. Bring shoes as there can be a bit of a hike. 3. If you kayak it can be a bit of a workout going against the current/wind and getting back after a full day. Plus if you are there at low... More

This was fantastic! My fiancé and I honestly could've stayed here all day!!! The boat ride to the island was fairly quick. We used Caribbean cruises (I think!!!). Had we really known what we were getting ourselves into, we would've packed lunches and more water. Walking through the island to get to the private beach and trying to spot the... More

We took a tour that included this island. The remote corners were breathtaking, but the mini hike would have been better if we knew to bring shoes. Lots of little burs will stick your feet without them! Look for the iguanas by the picnic table. They hang out there waiting for tourists to feed them. Not a natural setting for... More

We went to Little Water Clay as part of an excursion we signed up for and found this to be a fun little stop. They have about 6000 iguanas on the island and they don't seem to mind tourists. My son is 11 and loves iguanas so this was a trip highlight for him.

We actually arrived to Little Water Cay via kayaks rather than through boats tours. We rented our kayaks at Big Blue Unlimited at the Leeward Marina, this turned to be one of the highlights of our trip. It took about 20 minutes to kayak and make your around Little Water Cay. On the way you pass mangroves and very pretty... More

We rented a kayak from Big Blue, rowed through the Mangroves, and then to Iguana Island. Unfortunately, we didn't see any marine life in the Mangroves but Iguana Island was very cool and rowing across to there in that incredibly blue water was an experience in itself! The water is so crystal clear and so blue it looks fake sometimes!... More

Breathtaking beaches, white sugar sand, gin clear water. Kids loved searching for the iguanas. Just beautiful.

Worth the visit certainly, just be aware there is nothing spectacular! Have to know that there is no shade anywhere, or a little gazebo on the other side of the island , follow the wooden bridge/ponton , bring your water, don't feed the iguana's , even if they run towards you expecting somethig-could be dangerous for them, they have their...

Because we visited in October on a Friday morning, there was no one else on the island except our tour guide who was able to focus only on us and take extra time to explain and guide. We paid a little extra so that after our tour we got to spend an entire morning/early afternoon on a beach on this... More

I actually am reviewing Half Moon Cay which is between Little Water Cay and Wayer Cay, I cannot find it on Trip Advisor. You can access it by going to Little Water Cay. This place is like heaven on earth with the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We stopped here for lunch during our snorkel tour and jumped... More
