discover Scilly Cay

A Simple Beginning, A Lasting Legacy

Nestled in the bay of Island Harbour, Anguilla, Gorgeous Scilly Cay stands as an esteemed, locally-owned establishment with a captivating history. In 1985, Sandra and Eudoxie Wallace transformed a barren cay into an exclusive beachfront sanctuary that boasts an unassuming yet charming beach bar and BBQ. In its early years, guests savored a simple yet authentic experience, seated on the sand with grape leaves artfully serving as their makeshift plates.

As time has passed, the mission of Scilly Cay remains the same: to provide a simply natural, simply delicious, and simply the best experience to all our visitors. We’ve built our legacy on this simplicity, and after 38 years of operation, the same rings true.

 

With a dedicated team solely focused on giving our visitors and guests the best experience, you’ll want to come back time and time again.

Testimonials

"We loved our day here. The boat ride was smooth and scenic and stepping on to the island transported us to a different world. Sandra and her team made us feel like VIPs and although there were at least 20 others on the island, we felt like it was our private piece of paradise. There is enough variety on the menu to make everyone happy (we had the chicken with delicious peanut sauce; one friend had the whole snapper; another friend had the lobster and all were raved about.) The drinks were generously mixed and cheaply priced. Beers also were priced as cheaply as we’ve found on Anguilla. We will make Scilly Cay a must do each trip to AXA. Thank you Sandra and team. It is obvious you care deeply about this island and your guests."

Went to the island with a group of 30 last minute and had a fantastic day. The food was some of the best on the island! Great music and atmosphere for an event.

"My husband and I went here for lunch during our stay. The food was good, drinks were strong, and the servers were friendly. The water was a bit choppy on the boat over but captain made sure we arrived safe and sound. Glad we went."

Shanywany – Mar. 2023

"The whole experience is our favorite, from the little boat ride over to a beautiful secluded beach with a charming restaurant with such a nice family and staff to serve us the best lobster and sides ever. This was probably the 4th time we have taken this trip and will do it again."
