My daughter loved collecting the soldier crabs and chasing the iguanas. I loved snorkeling near the pier and seeing all the baby lobster, blue runners and sea urchins! My wife loved the rhum punch! We all loved the food and music! Its a family run affair, dont be in a hurry. Alexander and Brandon are some of the hardest working... More

We had a great time, but it's very expensive. $100 per person. The food/lobster is very good and the DJ was amazing. We ate, drank, danced on the beach and had a lot of fun. I think $50-$60 pp would be more appropriate.

Catching a boat to go across the harbor is fun. Scilly Cay looks dated and past it's prime but it's still a fun afternoon and the grilled crawfish and lobster are delicious. Plus the DJ keeps the whole vibe very beach party. It's expensive but still fun.

Having not made the trip to Scilly Cay on our numerous visits to Anguilla we were deeply disappointed by our first visit for lunch today. Very, very average food at outrageous prices. Awful music played too loud from a computer!!! So, we hotfooted it back to Meads bay for some proper reggae and a decent rum punch from Fishy at... More

I've been to Scilly Cay twice and both times it's been amazing. Yes it expensive! But well worth it! I've never had better lobster in my life! And the 5$ strong rum punches completely even out the price of the food. Can't wait to come back and eat here again this next year!

The day we went there were rough seas, making it unsafe to snorkel. The island is nice, and I didn't think that $75 (with 15% service fee) was too out there for Caribbean lobster. The drinks are quite strong, so take it easy.

Pretty island with free minute boat. Must order chicken or lobster or another item $20-50 plus drinks. We liked the chicken. Nice little calm beach area.

Really cool place that is a must visit while on Anguilla. Good food limited drinks and beer. Its a private island. Watch your tab. There is no computer system. They keep track in a note book and they tend to miscount.

A fun, fun day trip for families! The grilled lobster is well worth the price and ladies could easily share the pound and a half lobster. Don't miss this amazing Caribbean delicacy, and of course the Rum Punch is an island legend as is the bartender who prepares them. Bring wet wipes because the bathrooms had a water issue the...

Sure, it's one of those things you might feel you need to do in Anguilla, but you have to be kidding me! Aside from a free boat road, this place is a big rip off. The food stinks and the over cooked lobster tasted like the starter fuel for the coals used to cook it. I think they get you... More
