Be a pirate for a day on a desert island. Scilly Cay is a sand bar surrounded by sea and has a small restaurant on it. A three-minute boat ride will get you there where rum punch, crayfish, and lobster lunches await. Take your own towels and snorkel gear, and don’t forget the sunblock. They are open on Wednesdays and Fridays, with live music on Sundays.
Don’t forget about Little Bay with its secluded beach and super snorkeling. Charter a boat to get you there and leave in your own time.
A day trip to one of the neighboring islands is a must. The French and Dutch island of St. Martin/St. Maarten is a 20-minute ferry ride away to Marigot on the French side, and a longer ferry ride to the airport on the Dutch side. Most businesses on the French side close for lunch, but on the Dutch side, they are open all day. Duty-free shopping is a huge attraction, amongst many others.
St. Barth’s is a bit further away, but can be reached with a small charter plane, or a boat can be arranged. A ferry to St. Martin/St. Maarten and then a ferry to St. Barth’s is also an option.
