We took a day-long boat tour with Shalton (who is AWESOME! You can reach him at 242-441-5379 or 242-441-6704 for his Heaven & Earth Tour) to Peterson Cay. He speared fish while we were snorkeling then took us to Peterson Cay. We snorkeled and wandered...More

This is a must visit when you are on the island. We travel over on our own boats and plan at least one day, if not more, at this private beach. It's a very small sandbar, but it's protected from the rest of the open...More

We snorkeled around the cay itself after arranging for a motorboat ride out. The colorful fish and very cool coral were great to see. Our guide, Brice of Frans Tours provided the boat ride and equipment and watched over us, which was really important as...More

Best place on the island! Beautiful beach and pool-like waters. It's just such a SHAME that yacht owners and other tourist day trips are damaging the fragile and shallow coral reef around the tiny island with anchors and jetskis, not to mention the trash they...More

The caves are beautiful. I can't see this space being something I would have called a driver to visit as a stand alone space. If you have a car, you may want to drive out, but your best bet is to do a tour (...More
