Scilly Cay, Island Harbour

Anguilla, Caribbean
Island Harbour
Tel: 264 497 5123's insider take:

Reachable only by the island's launch (stand on the dock and wave your arms), private boat, or helicopter, Scilly Cay is the ultimate beach bar despite the unbeachbar-like prices (entrees start at $30 and soar upwards). There's no electricity, so it's lunch only, but the big platter of local crayfish (seasonal favorite), lobster, chicken, snapper, or a combination of any of the above, is prepared in a secret marinade and grilled to perfection. Bring your snorkeling gear and have a swim before you feast… and before you experience paradise on owner Eudoxie's notoriously potent rum punches. Blame it on the splash of Amaretto if your knees buckle in the sand. It's particularly fun when there's live music: guitarist Sprocka serenades the tables on Wednesdays and the local scratch band Happy Hits grooves on Sundays.

Open Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 11 am to 5 pm, November through August.
