Henley Cay, previously known as Women's Cay, is an 11-acre tropical islet in the United States Virgin Islands. The cay is 300 yards in diameter and the largest and southernmost of the Durloe Cays in the Virgin Islands National Park. Henley Cay is situated 2,200 feet northwest of Turtle Bay on the island of Saint John, separated from the island by the Durloe Channel. The cay is 70 feet high and has a pier on its southern side, although it is uninhabited. The island is known as a snorkeling and kayaking destination, but is also visited for its white sandy beaches. Companies offer guided kayak tours from Cruz Bay, Honeymoon Bay, and Caneel Bay to Henley- and Lovango Cays.

  • There is 1 Mooring but people also kayak out. It was the nicest snorkeling we did while on St John this year. Lots of different fish and coral.

  • I chartered a dinghy boat from Wharfside Village in Cruz Bay, St. John. From there it was about a 20 to 30 minute boat ride to Henley Caye. Because the only way there is by kayak or boat, not a lot of people go there. The coral was gorgeous....best I have seen in the entire Virgin Islands! So many different species of fish. It was like a rainbow of colors underwater.
