Very small island. Hurricane Irma reduced this tiny island and left only white sand. They are replanted the vegetation. We pre-ordered our lobster and crayfish (both over-priced) when we arrived and it was no better than I've had the pleasure to eat at Straw Hat....More

This was amazing. A beautiful little island that offered a great beach, great service and an amazing food/drink selection. The beach has bed and lounge set-up, picnic tables for lunch and even offer volleyball should you choose. This is a definite must when visiting Anguillla

I'm allergic to shellfish so that knocked a lot of the food off the menu for me so I had chicken. It was adequate, nothing memorable. Food took quite awhile even though they weren't that busy.

Voted one of the top five beach bars in the Caribbean; Sandy Island is a tiny spit of sand in the middle of the ocean serving fabulous fresh seafood, with excellent wine and beverage service and 360 degrees of ocean views. It is the ultimate destination for lunch, snorkeling and beach lounging.
