Prickly Pear Anguilla – Private Island Lunch Paradise
As lunch spots go, Prickly Pear Anguilla is pretty close to perfect. Nestled six miles north of Anguilla, the Prickly Pear Cays are easily accessible by boat. The twin islets, Prickly Pear East (pictured) and Prickly Pear West, are separated by a narrow channel. A series of smaller rocks and cays lay scattered about, adding to the otherworldly seascape. The trip out here from Sandy Ground takes a little less than 30 minutes. Don’t worry if you’re not hungry when you arrive. These cays offer lots of nice diversions to help you work up an appetite. Hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, and frolicking about some of the sweetest seas around preps you nicely for the lobster and BBQ treats served at the Prickly Pear Bar + Restaurant. The restaurant is open Tuesday–Sunday from 11am to 4pm. For boaters, though, the nice lime is available here anytime.
