“Absolutely stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We did this trip on our own from a private catamaran but I would highly encourage taking this trip by any means possible. The beaches can't be compared to anywhere! Absolutely pristine and stunning!

“Breathtaking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

So pretty, very secluded, truly feels like paradise. Chairs and umbrellas available. A bar for drinks, and a restaurant with good food. Swimming is nice, snorkeling is ok.

“Pristine Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Totally worth the trip to get to the beach. We booked a private sailing charter to go to the beach and it was an excursion of a lifetime. The beach itself is amazing and so relaxing. There were about 20 people there total, including the 3 of us.

Highly recommend doing a day trip here while visiting SB or SXM. Check out the Flagship II catamaran owned by Zuzu during your visit, the staff is amazing and attentive.

“"A screen saver" or "A Corona commercial"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Prickly Pear is an uninhabited Carribean island, and is the classic vision of one. Take a boat here, snorkel up, go for a romantic walk. Great photo ops.
