Prickly Pear Beach, BVI

Prickly Pear is a small island just off the coast of Antigua and just east of Virgin Gorda.  The island is uninhabited and a British National Park, and, most importantly to us, contains Vixen Point, another wonderful white sand beach with clear turquoise water.

The beach is set up for a barbeque, with chairs and beach toys for all of us.

Other boats pull in, one collection of rental catamarans all tie themselves together, and come ashore for lunch and/or a drink.

The captain tells us that one of the larger yachts stopping here rents for $450,000 per week, not including fuel and port charges.  Perhaps we'll stick with our shared cruise for now!

On to the next island!
