The Prickly Pear Cays, are a small pair of uninhabited islands
in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.

Prickly Pear were classified as wildlands and are one of six marine protected areas of Anguilla.


The two cays are located close to each other at 18°16′N 63°11′W. They are accessible from Road Bay, Anguilla and Saint Martin either by catamaran or sail boat. There is total ban on coral extraction or shells from underwater and spear fishing is not allowed.

Flora & Fauna

The two cays have been identified as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International because of their breeding seabirds. Marine fauna in the reef area include schooling goatfish, lobsters, barracuda, angelfish, tarpon... Nurse sharks are also seen resting at the sandy bottom.


The islands are popular with tourists due to the abundant marine and bird life. There are two restaurants and a bar which are serviced by staff who come in each day from the mainland of Anguilla. Snorkelling and diving are possible with several sunken ships in the area.
