We went there trying to find a good spot for snorkelling in Anguilla, what is not easy task to do comparing to other places in Caribe. The snorkellig was not good (thousands of dead corals, we heard was caused by a hurricaine in the 90s), some fishes but nothing special. What surprised us is the quality of the food served.... More

We had chartered a boat with 4 friends and sailed to the island for snorkeling and lobster lunch. It was a great day

Visited in June 2012. Loved the Mahi Mahi, and the others in my party enjoyed their entrees. We anticipated the food being middling, at best. Instead, this turned out to be a pleasant surprise. It's not Blanchard's, but still worth every penny. Absolutely great experience.

If you are looking for mega beach activities this is not the place for you, however, if you are needing a quiet, tranquil day at the beach, this is the perfect spot for you. It is a small peace of heaven sorounded by sand. The boat ride was wonderful and affordable. The food was good. There was enough places to... More

Great place to spend an afternoon. The staff provided great service. They cared about showing us a good time. We snorkeled, played volleyball, played DJ, ate lunch, drank cocktails and lazed in hammocks. Food & drink was a bit pricey but to be expected. Cash only.

I have eaten here twice now on two separate occasions. It's a cute little island you take a boat too. They are incredible friendly and nice here. My husband loves the ribs. The fish is not fresh. Both times, it was just terrible. Other than that, it's a great relaxing spot with good service. Once you order lunch, it will... More

Sandy Island is s tiny place, sort of sand bar with a few palms, that sometimes disappears during storms. Short trip by boat (10 minutes) for some sun and a burger or ribs.

On a recent day we spent on a sailboat we stopped here. It is a small sandy area with a small bar on it. You can get food also. There is not much to do here but drink and lay in the sun but that is what we come to the Caribbean for isn't it? The staff is friendly and... More

I must admit to it's pretty cool to travel to such a small isolated island with a restaurant on it. I think you just need to do it once. Perhaps it was the day we selected and with the over- cast skies - the water wasn't as blue as the photos. We knew the food and drinks were expensive, and... More

The employees did their best to accommodate all your needs. We enjoyed our afternoon there. The ride over was nice and the weather/water and island delivered. Food was equal to other locations around the island. Nothing special in regards to taste or price as we found all the food incredible and the pricey but worth it. Boat ride 10$ each
