Escape a day to Anguilla
If you choose to explore our neighbor island, Anguilla, the charter will take you to the following locations:
– Dog Island
– Prickly Pear East and West
– Sandy Island
– Little Bay
– Scrub Island
The favorite place in Anguilla is usually Sandy Island, as it’s a TINY island in the middle of the ocean made only out of sand.
It’s perfect to spend a few hours while having lunch and relaxing on the white sand in the middle of nowhere. This is the perfect location if you want to disconnect from everything and enjoy the moment, as there is no other place on earth as this one.
On Anguilla’s northern part of the island is also Prickly Pear, which is known for its exotic vibe, and on the West side it has the clearest turquoise waters of the island, as on the east side you can find a salt pond and two restaurants, that are perfect for lunch.
And if you really want to become an explorer of Anguilla, you CAN NOT miss this place: Scrub Island. A little island full of mysteries, Scrub Island will keep surprising you every step you take. You will see an abandoned hotel, an ancient plane crash, underwater caves and you might also see a few sharks…. yes, sharks. Scrub Island is THE place where sharks will come to give birth.
Escape a day to Saint Barth
Another perfect day tour location is Saint Barth’s. If you come during the high season (between November and March) you’ll have the chance to see the biggest and most expensive yachts in the world all reunited around this tiny island. The boat ride from Sint Maarten / Saint Martin to Saint Barth’s is usually around 45 minutes with a speed boat.
