5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

The 3 Cays and the colors were spectacular, unfortunately we didn't snorkle due to some rain.

“Beautiful and PRIVATE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

We rode our bikes so it wasn't too hard to get to, albeit bumpy.
We were the only ones there. We snorkeled some, but it was rough and sorta windy.

A must go if you are on North.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2011

It was difficult getting there. But is was well worth the trip. I would advice renting a jeep not a car. The road is very rough and overgrown with brush. The snorkelling was great.
There was no-one there but us. I would suggest to pack a blanket, food and a few beers and just enjoy.

“Interesting site but not easy to get to”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2010

We took the dirt road turnoff just before Monkey Inn and drove about 12 minutes though fairly overgrown bush which felt like a safari adventure before reaching the cays. The sign for the cays comes just a few minutes before you arrive, you need to turn right away from Pumpkin bluff pond, a rust colored body of shallow water. The road had two worn down tire tracks with fairly tall grass and weeds in the center. Our vehicle was similar to a suburu outback so we made it through but the brush on the sides was intense! I would not go again without a truck or SUV, even then I would fear ending up with flat tires. It may be worth trying again but be prepared for the ride and possible disappointment with the snorkeling. The water at entry was very shallow with strong currents. Attempts at snorkeling were unsuccessful owing to the rough water and fears of fire coral in the shallows. We kept drifting and could not control where we were going and thought it was too dangerous to go out on the sea side of the cays which are actually rock formations. Overall it was a beautiful site but a bit disappointing due to the currents. There was a very large ship wreck nearby as well as the wreckage of a small boat upon entry which may be a clue to the usual conditions in the area.
