Beat the crowds and find your own little oasis at Protestant Cay, a tiny 1.6 hectare (4 acre) islet easily reached via a five-minute boat trip from Christiansted. Rent some snorkel gear from the local diving company and enjoy the crystal clear water's diverse marine life and colorful coral reef. Those feeling a little more adventurous can rent one of the kayaks, windsurfers, and sailboats. Don't fret if you're not staying on the island's tranquil resort, as the restaurant and beach are open for public use.
