Prickly Pear island
|British Overseas Territory||British Virgin Islands|
Prickly Pear is an uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. Even though the island doesn’t have permanent residents, it has a beach bar and recreational water sports facility on it. It is located on the north side of North Sound, opposite Virgin Gorda.
The island provides habitat for the common Puerto Rican ameiva (Ameiva exsul), crested anole (Anolis cristatellus wileyae), barred anole (Anolis stratulus), and the big-scaled least gecko (Sphaerodactylus macrolepis macrolepis). The island's flora includes agave (Agave missionum), and copperwood (Bursera simarouba).
