Sandy Island is a just a short boat ride by water taxi from Paradise Beach ... costs about $20 round trip. The snorkling is fabulous. Take your own gear. You will not be disappointed.

There is no set price. It varies from 100 to 200 dollars. It depends on which point in carriacou you catch a charter boat.
