Peace and Splendor in the Berry Islands

Welcome to a place where vacations should never end. The Berry Islands are composed of a cluster of islands and cays. As legend has it, its name originates from the abundance of thatch berry trees found in this part of the world. Also known as the Berries, the largely uninhabited Berry Islands offer great diving, snorkeling and sport fishing, as well as miles of unspoiled, private beaches. With a land mass totaling about a dozen square miles, and a population of approximately 730 inhabitants, it is no wonder that this peaceful paradise tops the list of those seeking quietude and beautiful vistas.

Popular Cays

  • Little Stirrup Cay has been transformed by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines into a wonderful one-day stopover so that its passengers can explore the Berry Islands.
