We visited Sandy Bay the night before the sailboat races. We met so many nice people and visited Elvis' bar. This place is so beautiful with so many places to eat and have your favorite cocktail!

We were at Sandy Ground for diving through "Shoal Bay Scuba" - actually located at Roy's Place Sandy Ground. The beach is unbeatable, we had a few great meals here, and got to watch the beginning of a regatta. Like Paradise
