4 Waterlemon Cay

Waterlemon Cay is a small cay within Leinster Bay. To get there you'll need to do a short 20 minute hike (.8 miles) in from the Annaberg ruins parking lot. It is a relatively easy hike following a flat trail alongside the bay's edge. This is a top-notch snorkeling spot. You will see all kinds of sea life there. You can go by boat on Calypso Charters Waterlemon Cay Sail & Snorkel (777-7245) or go with V.I. Ecotours on their guided tour of Annaberg ruins and Waterlemon Cay (779-2155).
