Scilly Cay

The Valley Road, AI-2640, Anguilla


See Website

To reach Scilly Cay, guests go down to Island Harbor, stand on the dock and wave; soon enough, a small boat from the tiny island of the same name arrives to transfer them to the ultimate Anguillan lobster shack. Since Scilly Cay has no electricity, food can’t be stored, so each day lunch goes straight from the fishermen’s boats to the restaurant’s grill. Choices include lobster, crayfish, marinated chicken and snapper (this last must be ordered two days in advance). Each dish comes with fresh sides and is served on a bed of grape leaves picked on the island. Scilly Cay is run by the charming Eudoxie Wallace and his wife Sandra, an Atlanta gal-turned-island entrepreneur who also designed the beautiful Desert Rose villa. Be sure to come with a swimsuit and sunscreen to enjoy the private beach after lunch. Call ahead for large groups or private functions.
