Prickly Pear Crocus Bay

Heading north and west from St. Martin, your route will take you towards the south coast of Anguilla, situated only 13 miles (21 kilometres) from Sunsail’s base at Oyster Pond. Anguilla is the most northerly of the British Leeward Islands and is surrounded by unspoiled coral reefs and mile upon mile of soft, white, powder-sand beaches. 

It’s a gentle island that offers a warm welcome – one of the most charming and laid-back in the Caribbean.  The protected marine reserve at Sandy Bay is hard to beat as a place to stop for a lazy afternoon of swimming and snorkelling and the coral reefs of Prickly Pear Cays and the waters of Little Bay teem with enough sea-life to occupy dedicated divers and snorkelers for days if not weeks! (So many wonderful spots, so little time ……. You might just have to plan a return visit.) Anchor for the night in peaceful and secluded Crocus Bay, just south of Pelican Point, where the 70 ft (21 metres) cliffs rise up dramatically above the beach.  T

he cliffs are home to thousands of birds – including pelicans, of course! – that can bewatched for hours. The snorkelling here is fantastic and the beach just cries out to be lolled upon. The Valley, the main town on Anguilla, is within walking distance of Crocus Bay beach and has some interesting shops and artisan arts and crafts as well as a few good restaurants. Koal Keel is one that is popular with visitors.
