We were 2 couples on vacation and the girls wanted to go to on the boat. This turned out to such a fun trip. the boat capt and crew were great. Snacks of fruit and cheese on the boat with music. We helped raise the sail. The island beach was beautiful.

It was fun to be there. There is nothing much to do. We have spent couple of hours and it was sufficient. The boat timelines are somehow loose but we thought is part of the relaxed mindset.

I read so much about Sandy Island before our trip to Anguilla so I made sure to schedule a full day to spend there. Once we got there I was a little disappointed. The beach and the waters were nice but not more so than any of the other beaches we had visited in Anguilla. Service that day was pretty... More

Sandy Island is a must-do while in Anguilla. My wife and I were staying on St. Maarten but ferried over to spend one night on Anguilla. Our plan was to spend a few hours on Sandy Island, eat and then head back to explore Anguilla, since our time on the island was limited. Our lesson learned was to devote a... More

Made the short voyage over to Sandy Island with my wife and another couple. It's like an oasis of Caribbean bliss. Beautiful views, "magazine cover" blue waters, and great food. Besides the good food and drinks there is not much to do but catch some rays and snorkel. It was the off season and they didn't have their full menu... More

Wir went during low season. Everybody at the port was very helpful. The girl from the Restaurant there called the Island. First they said that during low season it is only possible by reservation, But then they picked us up. First we were alone there, later arrived another boat for lunch.

Accessible only by boat - a great place to dock and spend the afternoon. We went with Calypso Cruises and a great crew who introduced us to the local scenery. Great restaurant; Friendly service; delicious food. Bring your appetite! Grilled lobster was enormous with plenty of sides....Tasty rum punch; beautiful beach.

An easy hop on the ferry from Sandy Ground. We were in Anguilla for over a week and this was the best lobster we had - expensive but worth it for the great experience. Fun staff - great rum punch too. One of the workers grabbed a coconut from the tree and made us a fun drink on the spot.... More
