“Breathtaking.”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Scooby Too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a great excursion to take while in St. Martin. Just went this past Wednesday on a day trip to Prickly Pear for snorkling/beach/lunch. They pick you up right off the beach at the Grand Case Beach Club. This is the second time we went on a trip with Scooby Too and would do it again! Well worth the $120 each for the day.
