My wife and I visited Sandy Island and had an amazing afternoon. We went with Allison who runs Isle of reefs tours. We arrived on a boat from Carriacou (10min crossing) and were led up the island, where there was a table and chairs set for lunch! We had a couple of rum punches followed by a delicious meal and...

The first time we visited Sandy Island, three years ago, the mooring balls were maintained and there were 10 or 12 of them available. When we visited in 2014, all the balls were gone or not maintained and we had to anchor instead, a dire state of affairs for the burgeoning reef adjacent to the island. We carefully anchored in...

Went here with my family and we had a lovely picnic at his beautiful island... Felt a bit like Robison Crusoe, as there were no other people there. We got a ride by Busters boat (ask at Hardwood bar), all good!

Fabulous snorkeling and beach-combing. The benches under the palms and the hermit crabs wandering around was wonderful.

We used Deefer Divers in Hillsborough to ferry us across to Sandy Island and arranged for them to collect us a couple of hours later. We were the only people on the island for the time we were there. The snorkeling was really great. At the rocky end of the island, a short way out from the beach, there is... More

We stopped to spend the night and watch the sun set while heading up the Grenadine islands with a morning swim and snorkel before heading up the islands. On the way back down a week laterwe stopped in to relax on the deserted spit of sand while some couples wanted to snorkel again. We thought the small island was very... More

Sandy Island is a really beautiful small island with a snow-white beach and nice little palms. Although there is a placard with a warning by government, you find littering even on this small piece of paradise unfortunately. The snorkling around the island is nice but nothing very special. The current is very strong here so please remember to have a... More

A great day for doing nothing but relaxing. Best in your own vessel but can be taken there from Carriacou.

We went via Joy's water taxi from the Hardwood bar on paradise beach & rented snorkel gear there too. The best time to go is early morning before too crowded & too hot as no shade. We had the whole island to ourselves most of the time. The snorkelling is very good but beware of the currents as very deserted.... More
