A very popular day stop for cruisers and trippers alike with some interesting coral sculptures along the beach. Beware using the loungers on the beach - you will be charged heavily by the bar owners whether or not you eat or drink there (US $5 or $10!). $150 for a seafood combo too - I suspect they have few takers!

A must do. Accessible only by a decent boat. Hammock and double loungers for rent. Amazing location. What I dreamt of and got ! Don't miss it. Price not too bad considering the logistics they have to overcome !

Sandy Island is an incredible, petite patch of paradise. Accessible only by boat (charter or public ferry), Sandy Island is a wonderful place to visit for cocktails and lunch. It is suggested that you pre-order your food before your arrival, or you may wait quite some time. All food is brought in by boat, and cooked on grilles in the... More

Sandy Island is a must see!! This was our favorite thing we did on our trip in the Caribbean. The food is amazing and the island is so beautiful fun! The boat ride out to the island is also so much fun in itself because you get to sail on the ocean in a speed boat!! I would definitely recommend... More

We took a boat from Sandy Ground out to this tiny island that has a lovely beach, swimming in seas that are gentle and less so, and a wonderful restaurant and bar. We took an 11am boat out and a 4pm boat back, we walked, swam, snorkeled, looked at shells and rocks, ate, drank, and lounged in the sun (lots... More

We spent a day here. Took the boat from Sandy Ground out to the Island. There were plenty of chairs and we had some shade. We ordered our lunch (told them what time we wanted to eat). We spent the day lounging, snorkeling, walking in the sand, and people watching. Okay, we may have napped a little, too. A very... More

We make sure to get to Sandy Island EVERY time we visit Anguilla. Really fun with a big group and a relaxed attitude. Bring your snorkel gear and a WaBoba Ball for added fun!

This is a nice island and a nice boat road to get there. But, I would not go on a windy day. The drinks were nice, but it was yet another costly excursion where I didn't feel I got the bang for the buck. The food was overpriced and mediocre. And, ask prices first because the sticker shock for some... More
