There are few places like Marina Cay. The flower covered, eight-acre island is ringed by a soft, white sand beach. The island is nestled in a sheltered, emerald green, lagoon whose shallow waters are always calm and lukewarm. It is the ideal place for snorkelers to enjoy the colorful fish and sea life that inhabit the coral reef and the lagoon. The quiet lagoon and reef make Marina Cay the ideal place for vacationing families with small children who desire a natural, safe, watersports environment. Likewise it is a wonderful place for those wishing to learn to snorkel and scuba dive. The island is also home to an award winning Pusser’s Restaurant specializing in seafood and cuisine of the Caribbean.
With something for everyone, Pusser’s Marina Cay offers water sports, an outstanding restaurant on the beach, and a nightly BBQ on the island’s summit with its spectacular 360º view. The bar on the porch of the Robb White House features a daily Happy Hour and early entertainment.
The main restaurant on the beach offers local cuisine and American and Continental standards. Each dining location has spectacular views of the sea and the anchorage. This is where you sip your Pusser’s Painkiller in the gentle breeze of the evening, and relax to the soft music and the lapping of water along the beach. And it is only a 10-minute FREE ferry ride on the Pusser’s boat from near the airport to the island.
Pusser’s Marina Cay is home to a Pusser’s Company Store that certainly has one of the prettiest locations in the Caribbean. It is chocked full of the entire line of Pusser’s proprietary tropical and nautical clothing, and also carries a good stock of condiments and snacks.
