We went to Prickly Pear Cay with Capt. Rollins on Chocolat. We snorkeled and hung out for hours and it was one of the best beach days of my life. Fantastic drinks at the beach bar and the food was delicious!

Amazing food! This was our 3rd time to the island. The restaurant is only open on certain days so make sure to verify that ahead of time. The food is amazing & the offer generous portions!

We went on an excursion and we had a blast. Best beaches ever with amazing sandy beaches. Good snorkeling. You have to charter a boat to go there though.

Loved Prickly Pear when we came with a tour. There's 2 restaurants and bars on the island and lots of room to wander around the beach exploring. Beautiful place and would recommend it.
